Duration:10 minutes
4 objects in the sky over Las Vegas. Very high and bright as stars in daylight.

Today at work I am out smoking a cigarette. I look up and see what looks like a plane really high up flying from left to right. Then it makes an angular turn towards me. Then out of no-where another one appears following it and they start going right to left together. Then one of my customers says, "whatcha lookin at." I told her, "those two things in the sky." She goes, "Well there's three." There was another one where the two first came together.

So I am freaked a little because things don't really move at right angles but figure it is pretty far away so could have made an actual turn and me not notice. An hour later I go back outside for another cigarette and there is another one. This time it is lower and bigger and now obviously spherical.

It hovered there for a while and moved a bit. I thought maybe they were all balloons until a plane flew underneath it and it was still that big! Then I had a revelation when I saw it go into the clouds. I could find out how big it was before I would decide if it was something odd.

I noted the size and found out the cloud ceiling today was at 25000 feet.

My wife is a math whiz so she did some geometry and figured out that it would have to be 242 ft in diameter.
