Objects seen during daytime, moving, hovering, and changing color.

2 - 3 white/grey objects were seen during daylight on a clear day. They were apparently at a very high altitude as they were quite small compared to jets in the area. They appeared as elongated shapes and changed back & forth from white to grey.

They would move back & forth, in straight lines, at times stopping and remaining in the same spot. They would "disappear" and "reappear" in different places in the same general area. This lasted for about 2 - 3 minutes and then they were no longer observed.
