2 UFOs. High altitude surveillance or intelligent plasma balls?

I noticed two small objects at a very high altitude, slightly east of where I was standing in Louisville, KY. I was facing northeast and looking directly up while recording video on my iphone. When the objects began moving closer overhead, they gained altitude.

I ran in to get my phone and recorded for a couple minutes, then I got binoculars and watched them remain overhead for about an additional 6-7 minutes. Viewing with the naked eye they appear to twinkle very brightly, as though someone were reflecting the sun with a mirror; much brighter than the reflection off an airplane, and not like a flashing light but more of a shaky erratic effect and far brighter.

Through the binoculars they were very different. They didn't appear to be reflecting light, they were just a bright citrusy yellow, like a tennis ball. They were spherical with no wings. The reason they appeared to twinkle is because they each seemed to be made of two spheres attached to each other, but rolling around each other in a rapid undulating and random orbit with no space in between the two parts. This effect caused them to look elongated for short moments as the two spheres that made the individual objects were sometimes next to each other instead one on top of the other.

I tried to search for other reports of similar objects, but most were at night. Some web sites talked about plasma orbs but I am not sure because the color was consistent. Whatever they were, they seemed to be intelligently driven, because they stayed together and once they were overhead they didn't leave, as though they were looking back! (no voice to skull technology or other communication used on me, sorry) This is not the first time (I assume by the naked eye view) I have seen one of these. A few months ago, also during bright daylight, I saw one while walking into a gas station. I watched it for 3-4 minutes, twinkling brightly but not moving at all, until a cloud covered it. The two on the recent occasion disappeared behind chemtrails that were drifting. A cold front had just moved through and we had surprisingly clear skies (still have today). The chemtrails have been very heavy here for months, lessening on most weekends. I also captured an excellent shot of a sun halo, which I have seen many times in the last couple months.  If you have any information or insight, please respond. If I'm going to keep seeing these things I'd like to understand their nature better.
