30 small round objects floating horizontally in circular formation

Driving North on I-580 near to the Oakland Zoo. My mom pointed out a weird bird formation in front of us. She thought it looked strange because they were all staying together almost in a circular form and we both thought that birds usually don't fly like that together. As we got closer, we thought it was balloons because of the way they moved up and down, but the strange thing was if they were balloons they didn't go up into the air. The stayed within the circular pattern and seemed to hover or float horizontally. Of course neither of us had a camera.

I verbally explained it to my dad and he said it may have been a bunch of balloons all tied together which is what it almost looked like...but what are the odds of 30 balloons staying together and not floating straight up into the air.

I am writing this because we were on the freeway and the "UFO" was very visible and not too high above us. Someone else had to see it!!
