eight perfectly round balloons passed over head and dissapeared into a cloud

I was in the basement of our home, it was afternoon,about 2pm when I heard frantic calling from the backyard from my wife and kids, I rushed up and out into the yard where the kids were pointing straight up. I looked up to see what i considered balloons, im saying at least eight,they moved from straight over head to a large, very large! cloud.from over head to the clouds position would be 45 degrees, the children were screaming men in black repeatedly (it occurs to me now they didn't see it as balloons). as the spheres, or balls which were extremly white, reached the cloud they seperated equally to each side and entered one by one. during this I held my hand up to this cloud that was at 45 degrees,and its width was wider than my hand at arms lenght the balls were the size of my fingernails. it made me consider that if one of those things were near us it would have been the size of our two car garage. then after realizing the balls seemed to pause and enter the cloud one by one, I found a different interest to see what would happen next. balloons I thought would act randomly so we all waited for them to exit the cloud at some time somewhere. we watched the cloud and followed it to the horizon (as far as we could possibly see but they never emerged also the cloud seemed to have accelerated once the balls got inside it had an eastward heading. I'm only submitting this because I'm hoping someone seen something simular that i may compare.
