Two metalllic cylinders and an unusual "plane" sighted flying from SW to ENE and ENE to SW in Knoxville.

A bright metallic cylinder, seemed to glow- but this effect may have been sun light reflecting on its surface, crossed the sky from SW to ENE slowly. It made a sound like a dirigible that I heard before I saw it, very loud, but at the same time muted.It was a fairly high altitude--I would estimate between 5000--8000 ft.It went out of sight, and I thought gee I wish I could see that again. I looked up and a similar object was returning from the direction the first one went.The second one didn't make as much noise as it headed SW about the same altitude as the first. It crossed paths with a strange-looking white thing that looked like another cylinder only it had stubby, short wings that were nearer the tail than the middle of the craft.It flew ENE-no noise. We have had chemtrail spraying all dayand the white "plane" looked like what I've seen before connected with that activity.I am a fifty-one year old artist, a wife, homeowner,college.
