Location: Fort Smith, AR
Shape: Oval
Duration:35 minutes
A silvery oval-shaped object was seen shadowing two jetliners, suddenly changing directions, and flying in other parts of the sky south of Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Looking towards the horizon to the south-southwest, an oval, silvery object was seen by both of us as we walked along the sidewalk. The object was flying parallel to a jetliner in a southerly direction for a few minutes, then abruptly turned west and disappeared. About five minutes later the object was again seen in the same general area of the southern sky, flying by itself towards the south. The object then shadowed a jetliner that was flying from the east to the southwest, at first keeping a parallel path and then slowly veering west until it disappeared entirely.
