A 7:20 am i was closing a gate. the sun had just come up and i was faceing west. when i looked up i noticed a very brigh star. the sun was up and too bright to see a star. my wife and son were on their wa to work so i pointed to the sky to get their opinion. they watched with me for a couple of minutes still apeared not to move. my son went back to his cabin to get his binocklers. when he got back i went back to get mine. when i got back my son told me the oblect had split into two objects. when i got focused on the object i saw two silver oblong objects tethered to a red ball or maby a small parachute, the one to the left was slowly drifting ese surounded by 4 small spheers, the other slowly vanished to the west and the 4 speers zoomed off. i observed the ese traveler for another 8 or 10 minutes untill slightly to the south of my position the ciris clouds got too thick to see it any longer. toward the end the object seemed to be swinging slowly side to side on the tether and for a moment it looked like a small space shuttle shape. the red object never swayed from it line of travel. i saw no other air trafic around me.
