High flying large object followed by 20 small ones. Joined by other large object

OBJECTS WERE SEEN AT 90 DEGREES MOVING IN NNW DIRECTION. LARGE OBJECT WAS FOLLOWED BY ABOUT 20 SMALL OBJECTS FOLLONING IN A STRAIGHT LINE. IT WAS NEAR SUNSET AND THE OBJECTS APPEARED TO BE METALLIC WITH REFLECTED LIGHT FROM THE SUN. THE SMALL OBJECTS SLOWLY CHANGED POSITIONS RANDOMLY WHILE THE LARGE OBJECT CONTINUED NNW. ABOUT FIVE MINUTES INTO THE SIGHTING ANOTHER LARGE OBJECT APPEARED FROM THE SSW. AS IT CROSSED PATHS WITH THE FIRST LARGE OBJECT ABOUT 6 OR 7 OF THE SMALL OBECTS BROKE OFF FROM BEHIND THE FIRST LARGE OBJECT AND FOLLOWED THE SECOND ONE IN A NNE DIRECTION. THE SECOND LARGE OBJECT APPEARED TO STOP BUT ACTUALLY WAS RAPIDLY GAINING ALTITUDE WITH ITS' SMALL ONES FOLLWING IT. IT FINALLY FADED FROM VIEW. THE FIRST LARGE OBJECT CONTINUED IN A NNW DIRECTION WITH THE REMAING SMALL OBJECTS CONTINUNG TO FOLLOW. AFTER ABOUT 15 MINUTES IT FADED INTO THE DISTANCE NOT EVEN APPROACHING THEM HORIZON.
