Small mettalic spheres "chasing" each other

I was working at One Shell Square in downtown New Orleans at the time and there is limited parking in the building and there is a suttle that takes you from the building to the Superdome parking. I was waiting for the bus when this occured.

This was two days after 9/11 and there was a no-fly zone over the entire country. I was looking up thinking that this may be the only time in my life that I might see the sky with no aircraft in it at all. I noticed a metallic looking sphere(ish) object sort of darting around very high up. It was so small that I could barely see it. It was moving about in sort of a random pattern much likr a bird might, not taking up too much of the sky in its movements.

Then I saw another and another until there were maybe 5-7 up there. They appeared to be maybe chasing each other. It really could have been birds by their movements but I couldn't see any wings and they were so small that, if they were birds, they would have been very high. And, if they were birds and very far away (to appear so small) then they would have been moving really fast.

A man that I did not know was next to me and noticed me looking up. He saw it also. The bus came and after I got out I could not see them again. I'm not sure if I believe in UFO's or not and this sighting is not very exact or detailed, but I wanted to get it out there.

I found your web site after I watched the Peter Jennings show.
