Summary : We saw "rocks" floating in the air, they drifted over the trees. They appeared to be floating. Atleast 10 cars were pulled over on the side of the road. I knew my daughters and I were not seeing things.

I picked up my daughters from a slumber party on FM 1314. We travelled to Porter which is off of HWY 59. My 11 year old asked "Mom, oh my God, what is that in the sky?" I turned around at the Kroger right under the underpass. She sounded frantic. I looked and safely said"Probably parachutes." I drove back to 59 and proceeded to travel slowly on the feeder road going south towards Houston. I was shocked and amazed at what I saw. I looked around me and cars were pulling over on the sides of the road to see the objects. There were about 15-20. They looked like rocks or meteors floating suspended in the air. I pulled over at a car dealership on the right and stared at them. It was so unreal. Like I was in a movie and it wasn't really happening. One of the rocks looked very strange. They were all at different altitudes and they were moving slowly towards the west/southwest. I became aware of the fact that these objects could drop strait on our heads at any second,!so I backed out and left. I turned around at the next exit. By the time I got back to the spot and on the other side of the road heading north, the last of them could be seen just over the tree tops. I headed up 1314 to Conroe. I thought I could see them from the 242 loop, but no luck. I don't know where they went or what in the world they were, but I would like to know if something like meteors can come into our atmosphere and float that way. They appeared to be in 0 gravity. With all of the others that saw I know I can't explain it away.
