10 Unknown objects over Memphis

We saw 10 tonight from 7:50-8:20pm. I'm emailing you a picture I drew to describe it. The second and third objects we saw we right behind one another, about 45 seconds apart, travelling slower than airplanes, no sound, and much, much higher of course. All objects we saw this evening were traveling East, except one traveling Northeast and another traveling Southwest. We frequently saw airplanes this evening in the sky at the same time as these objects. We usually do not see airplanes in the air at the same time as the objects. All 10 this evening were of the same, usual kind we typically see: silver, cigar-shaped, appear to float along with no sound. The first one was notable because it seemed to be the lowest or closest of them all, enough to where we could make out what looked like a tail and a fin, almost like it was trying to appear to be an airplane, but looked nothing like an airplane. So, we saw them all singly, spaced about 2-3 minutes apart o! n average, except for the second and third ones which were following one another rather closely. After that there was one heading East and the only one that turned off and headed Northeast. At this point, we were able to watch 2 in the sky at the same time again. Only one of the objects had a blinking light on it, similar to an aircraft, but tiny and blinked a white or blue light that was inconsistent (i.e. i thought it blinked every second, it didn't). I mention in the photo I'm attaching that the silver material looks like plutonium. I have often suspected that these objects power themselves through nuclear power, which may explain the radiation they put off, the appearance of plutonium, and in some videos I have seen where they appear to turn on a fluorescent light that looks to be composed of the krypton element. Sounds very sci-fi, but I think it could be likely.
