Two silver glinting objects move purposefully in the clear blue sky above Cody, Wy.

We had finished lunch at the Irma hotel in downtown Cody, WY, we exited from the east door by the saloon I looked up my left at the hotel and noticed a silver light flashing randomly in the sky. I was looking northwest about 75 Deg. above the horizon.

At first i thought it was a mylar balloon, or something similar, glinting in the sun at perhaps 5000’ overhead. I pointed it out to my friend. We both watched ti slowly float west for a minute or two. Then it went back the way it came heading back west very slowly. Then it stopped (I had it lined up with the top of the hotel, so I had a stable reference point). It held its position still flashing randomly.

Then I noticed that there was another flashing object, the same as the first, coming from the west approx. 45 Deg above the horizon, but moving faster than the other object had been moving. The first object was still stopped, the second object came relatively close to the first (approx. 1.5 inches at measured at arm's length) and stopped also.

Then it headed back to the west and slowly vanished from sight after aprox. 1 minute. The first object headed more slowly to the north and I lost track of it, as it headed north.

I went into a store and when i cam out i scanned the sky and i saw a darkish object far to the west and headed out of sight south over the mountains.

That is the end of the incident. of course. I had my eyes trained on the sky for the entire rest of the day as we drove north to Columbus, MT, and saw nothing more.

I am a 58 yo male, who is an artist. My friend is a 65 yo male whom is retired, and is also an artist.

We both agreed we could not identify the objects.
