Six photos of unusal object at sunset on May 20th 05.

On May 20th 05, I was standing in front of my house photographing an unusual cloud formation at sunset when I spotted an object that first appeared to me as a bird. Within seconds I realized it wasn't a bird and couldn't discern what it was and continued to take pixs. The object moved from WSW in a horizontal path to the north.

I have shown the pictures to several friends. One is a Air Traffic Controller and another is a retired AF Col. we can't figure out what it is. One thought is balloons tied together but doesn't make sense based on speed and horizontal flight direction. If I hadn't taken the six pictures myself I wouldn't believe what I saw.

What is It?
