Summary : 3 objects at 30,000 ft traveling ssw at about600-700 mph

myself(Name deleted) and two of my co-workers were in the smoke pen at the refinery we work at as pumpers(lyondell-citgo refining,12000 lawndale,houston,tx) when we observed three objects at 30000-35000 ft traveling ssw at 1945 hours atabout 600-700 mph. the three objects were about 1-1 1/2 miles apart and were dark brown in appearance. they appeared to be about the size of a small apple in size,but i know they were much bigger for we were a great distance from the objects, if you understand what im saying. there was no vapor trail or sound,and there were no telltale blinking as regular aircraft are prone to do. we watched for about 13-15 minutes until all three passed thru the lower portion of a cloud and never reappeared on the other side coming out. there were clouds in the area,but there was more area devoid of clouds than otherwise. ive had three other sitings back in '94, and i reported them to hufon and mufon, but got no response. they were much better sitings with more definition than the ones i and my co-workers saw today. if anyone else saw the objects today,please let me know,as i would like confirmation from someone else
