5-7 objects flying in formation

On Saturday evening I walked out to my truck, as I was about to open the door I looked up into the sky and saw what I thought at first were Canadian geese. As I continued to watch these objects, I realized these were not geese. There were approximately 5-7 oval shaped, light brown in color, objects flying in a southerly direction over apartment buildings. They were approximately 2-300 feet above the ground flying in some sort of formation, like 3 in the front and 3 or 4 behind, they were moving too fast to be a bird, but there was no sound of any type of engine, as I continued to watch, the pattern of flight was somewhat erratic, not like that of a plane,there wereno lights on any of these objects, I put on my glasses to see if I could get a better view, and I could not see anything. I took my glasses off and I saw only 2 of the objects right above me, then all of a sudden, the objects, ascended very rapidly into the high thin clouds in a type of crescent pattern and then disappeared. I could not believe what I had just witnessed and had a nauseaus feeling at that point. I contacted a local news station to see if there had been any other reports or sightings- NONE
