Changing shape low in Davis-Mothan AFB landing pattern.

On Friday night 6/6/08 about 12:30 to 1:00am I noticed what appeared to be balloons flying in the air as if they had broken free from say a car dealer lot. This was a huge string of balloons; however as I watched I noticed it had the ability to fly in formation, so I thought maybe it was a flock of birds, but then I realized that it was to late and no birds fly this late. I started watching more closely trying to figure out what I thought I was seeing. Whatever this was it had the ability to fade in and out of sight meaning one second I could see pieces and the next second it was as if it had totally disappeared and then the next second it was visible again. It started off as a straight line then as it moved east to west it changed to a semicircle with the open end facing east. It disappeared the reappeared in a v shape I noticed it was banking to the south. Thats when I could see what looked like a dome shape within the v shape I could only see part of it. The other strange part we live close to an air force base, so I am familiar with different types of aircraft as well as the landing patterns whatever this was it was actually flying lower than the standard helicopter pattern also no engine noise. I have no idea what this actually was, but I can tell you that it was not technology that we are aware of. In truth I have no clue as to what this was in the end I got scared and went inside my home. I checked the wind direction for that night it was out of the wsw 5 to 8 knts.
