Shape: Circle
Duration:1 Minute
Two circular objects noted in So. WV in 1966, made 90 degree turns without changing speed.

In September 1966, a friend and I were driving west on Rt60 in Huntington, West Virginia, almost in front of the entrance of Camden Park, a local amusement park. We noticed people along the sidewalk stopped and staring up in the sky to the north. I pulled over to the curb and we both got out of the car. There in the sky were two circular objects, one above the other, heading west. The color of both objects were a white, but like frosted ice. A pea heald at arms length, would be about the size. If the objects were a passenger airliner, they would be at cruising speed. After watching them for a few seconds, 15 to 20 seconds, the lower of the two objects made a 90 turn and went towards the ground. Its speed did not change. It dropped below the horizon. 3 to 5 seconds later the other object did the same manouver, 90 degree turn toward the ground, no change in speed and dropped below the horizon. There were at least 20 people that were standing with my friend and I. The objects did not appear again.
