very high white flying objects

Malalayang Satu, Malalayang, Kota Manado, Sulawesi Utara

On the 8/9/17, at around 3pm, I saw in the sky a formation of 7 white flying objects, I called my wife and daughter and they could see the same things; that were made up of one large white UFO, and 6 smaller UFO's, the largest appeared to be circular the other appeared to be more of a boomerang shape,

I first saw them at about the 1 o'clock position from where I was standing facing to the north, they were traveling slowly across the blue sky at a height of about 7 to 10,000 meters, as they looked to be just lower than the cirrostratus but well above the cirrocumulus cloud that was in the same general location as the ufo's, the 5 smaller ufo's were being maneuvered similar to fighter jets during refueling from a tanker at high altitude, but none appeared to be in a tethered position and after a few minutes jockeyed around for a position to form a formation with the biggest ufo slightly in the lead, with 2 smaller ufo's taking a position to the port side the others to the starboard side of the large ufo, as they traveled west they traveled in a direct line except for some of the smaller ufo's that moved gradually closer then then slowly away from the larger ufo,

I could see this quite clearly for about 4 to 5 minutes but as they traveled away from me the smaller ufo's disappeared from vision by then the larger ufo was just a pinpoint in the sky the last position I could see the UFO was at the 11 o'clock position and still flying to the west.

I tried to take some photos, but my Olympus camera had flat batteries, and the phone camera couldn't focus.
