|Three stationary cylindrical clouds in formation.
While driving North on US 77 between Bishop and Robstown Texas, I observed 3 cylindrical clouds in close horizontal formation, altitude estimate 10,000 feet. Being a pilot, I tried to estimate the size compared to 747's and estimate is 10 lengths X 2 wide each. They remained stationary over what my estimate is the area of Corpus Christi Naval Station.
At first, I ignored them, thinking they were some sort of cloud caused by a refinery or industry. After I slowed in Driscoll, 7 miles later, I was surprised to look up and see that the shape or position of the clouds had not changed. I looked around 360 degrees and the sky was totally clear except for these clouds.
I continued to watch them until I turned Northwest at Robstown. When I last glanced at them, the middle cloud had disappeared and the two exterior ones remained.
I hesitated to report this because it was so unusual until I read the sighting in Esterk, Fla on 9/29.
