5 objects in close formation, but in no particular order

November 28, 2008 approx 3pm I was talking to a friend outside on the phone, and took notice of 5 objects high in the sky, north of where i was at. The sky was perfectly clear, except for the very beginnings of a small wispy cloud. The objects were in no clear formation, but close together in the sky. (an area smaller than the palm of your hand, perhaps two inches square) They looked metallic to me, as they seemed to shimmer. They were about the size of a pencil (softly dulled) point at this time. They looked to either be white, or red. There was one that was definitely red. While trying to keep track of them, it looked like something was swinging from below them, kinda back and forth. I thought maybe paratroopers, but i dont see how i would be able to see some one that small that high in the sky? Two of the objects seemed to stay in the same spot. I was looking through wires going across my yard, and they stayed in that same position for approx a min. I got up to look for a better vantage point, trying to see if maybe moving to a different area if i could see them clearer I lost track of two, couldn't see them any more. Three of them looked like they were in triangular formation, equal lateral. I watched two of them for a period of time, they remained close to each other and finally were too small for me to see in the bright sky. I sat back down and caught sight of two of them again, just sitting there in the sky. I would say the total time of my watching them was approx 5-10 minutes. Again, they drifted, till they were too small for me to see. About 20 min later, I took notice of a silver tubular object that crossed the sky from west to east. I continued to watch this object watching for wings or something to show it was a plane. Again, nothing was visible. I looked away for a sec, and back up, and it was gone. It had been above my house, and then it was gone. There was nothing blocking my view of the sky, and it wasnt that high up that i wouldn't have been able to see it anym! ore. Th is item looked to be the size of a plane, silver. Clearly visible. I watched this item for about 10sec total. I am not sure what these items were. The first five is what really grabbed my attention, this second item was just odd.

I am 37, single mom with a college degree. I have spotted odd things in the sky before and reported them. I am a believer in UFOs, but am still skeptical of them as until I see one that is beyond a shadow of doubt of alien origin, personally. My son was also watching the 5 objects with me.
