Thanksgiving evening, november 23, 2017 just before dusk. i was outside placing christmas lights on a small tree in the yard and just happened to look up in a ne direction, as i was standing there looking at the tree i was decorating. noticed several small white objects, probably 6 to 10 of them, seeming to just float around up in the sky. estimate them to be over 200+ feet up. thought at first someone must have released some helium balloons or something. watched for a minute or two and saw that they moved a little in a northern direction all in a scattered pattern, which is why i first thought they might have been helium balloons moving with the upper winds. then observed them form a circular position, stay in that spot for a few seconds and move a little to the south. then they seemed to scatter a little and just disappeared either due to the distance and moving upward. kept looking for them and about 15 seconds later, they reappeared again in a semi-scatter position, some still in a circular pattern, with a few moving away from the circle to the south. looked like orbs or small circular objects. went to get my wife, step daughter and two of my granddaughters to take a look at these things. my wife came out onto the porch and when she came over to where i was observing them, we could no longer find them in the sky. from the time i spotted them until i could not see them anymore was about 10 minutes. they could have already been there longer before i noticed them, who knows. anyway, never have seen any ufo's or orbs in my life, but thought this was really strange. i don't think upper winds would tend to move the objects like this and thought it might be noteworthy.
