Laughlin, Nev 2004 sighting of bomerange of multiple round shapes reflecting lights from River Palm Hotel

at first observation it almost appeared to be almost like about 8 extremely large round shaped almost like a bunch of balloons on each side as though they were each attached to one another. This was right over the river as we stood by the River Palm hotel, a very public type area. The Lights from the Hotel went straight up into the sky and the object went straight over head. We even thought at first perhaps it had been a flock of geese but could not have been as we heard no noise of any kind. Every time we go back to Laughlin we go the River Palm Hotel same spot and same time Dusk and look up. This has helped as we realized it was much much bigger than anything like geese because it was about the same height in the sky as the helicopters that were flying earlier. Also we noted that each round or balloon shape was nearly the size of one copter or a small VW volkswagon beetle bug or nearly as big. They looked like they were stringed together, I say that because they weren't exact as they were in a V shape and as I said about 8 on each side. It seemed to me that one side seemed to move or some on one side seemed to move. My husband the other witness didn't notice that. As we stared nearly straight up the colors seem to be almost opal or of many reflecting colors as if it were reflecting the colors which would make sense since the lights were so bright from the hotel. We could see it disappear into the clouds, gradually disappearing, also it seem to be going some what slow. Naturally no one else was around towards the other end towards other end of river nearer the Flamingo Hotel there are more people. Naturally at that time I didn't have a cell phone with camera nor a digital camera. It was just to 2 of us. I keep better records but had the info lost in my old email enfo so I am not exact on the month as a matter of fact it was somewhere between months and 26 months ago. We could ck our records perhaps our credit card to find when we stayed at the River Palm. I have asked and even notified the airport tower of course I waited a year to do so but they said they saw nothing. I can't believe no one else saw this because it was so hudge. To small to be geese, dismissed the idea of weather balloons because of direction and way it move. It was formed line a bomerange of round alluminating light like colors. Not having lights but reflecting light. I would say it was dusk between 6pm and 7:30 pm somewhere between April 2004 and June 2004 or Sept. 2004 and Oct. 2004 ( possibly even 4/2005-6/2005 but I believe it was longer ago than that)WE avoid the place when it gets really hot or really cold.
