Shape: Sphere
Duration:15 sec.
At approximately 1:30pm on 3/13/98, a group of seagulls caught my eye. As I looked up at the gulls,I noticed above them at about 4-5 white spheres traveling east to west at about 30 to 40 thousand feet.

At approximately 1:30pm on 3/13/98, I was in my backyard when I looked up and noticed a group of seagulls flying over head. Directly above traveling in a east to west direction over San Jose and heading twards the coast I noticed four to five bright spheres. I focused on the birds again to make sure my eyes were not deceiving me, then back on the spheres. These objects were white and completely round in shape. No other characteristics were observed.It was hard to tell how fast they were moving. They were traveling in a box formation. One trailing object moved from left to right over another and then moved back to its original position. It was at this time I decided to go in the house a get my binoculars, when I returned they were gone. For the next couple of days I told myself that what I saw could not have been a UFO, but there were no wings, perfectly round and very bright in color. I have not told my family because they would think I was nuts. I had to make this report because I think its important. I know what I saw and they were not planes nor were they baloons. If you are able to find out what these were, I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Thanks,
