Metallic Spherical object(s) in sky above downtown Portland Oregon this evening.

At approximately 7:30pm this evening my wife noticed in the eastern sky, above Pioneer Courthouse Square in Portland, Oregon, two metallic appearing spherical objects. They appeared to be connected one atop the other as they moved simultaneoulsy. The wind was blowing the clouds quite strongly North easterly. The object(s) remained stationary for about 5 minutes. Around 4 people saw us staring and asked us if it was a hoax so we pointed and they stood with us for several minutes. Whereupon the object(s) began to move in the opposite direction of the wind, but very slowly. As we all remained focused on it, it began to move more quickly over the next couple minutes due east. As it headed this direction, we lost sight of it in the clouds. As soon as we lost sight of it, a jetliner came from the exact location heading NW. This jet confirmed our object was not a plane as it was moving very quickly across the sky and appeared to be flying at the same altitude of the spherical object(s).
