UFO fleet of 40 plus objects some connected by tethers float across Atlanta clear daylight skyline.

My wife, two guests from Denmark and me were sightseeing in downtown Atlanta. This was a very bright, clear, deep blue, cloudless day in October a month after the WTC disaster.

We were all standing on a street corner right next to the downtown Atlanta post office and I looked up into the beautiful sky to take in all its glory and as I panned across the top of the Westin Peachtree Plaza hotel something caught my eye. I saw what appeared to be a "fleet" of UFO's noiselessly drifting across the sky in a Northwest to Southeasterly direction. It was an incredible sight to see at least forty or more objects floating at the same speed, silvery white in appearance contrasted against this crisp, beautiful deep blue fall day.

One of the most amazing views of what appeared to be inexplicable objects that I never would imagine I would see, ever. There is one detail I have left out till now. I would estimate that from these forty plus objects at least one third of them there was a similar, silvery white “tether” or “cord” that connected between two of the spheres. This was a very unusual sight. From the distance I stood from these craft, estimated at approximately 5,000 feet, the “tether” appeared at arm’s length to be the size in diameter of thread used in sewing. The objects themselves appeared to be the size of a very heavy “period” one would produce with a pencil on paper, held at arm’s length. When I called attention of this remarkable sight to a local street vendor I was surprised at his reaction. There was relatively none. He could care less. I thought this to be very odd behavior. He looked up and as quickly as he looked up he went back to his business of selling handbags and sunglasses without uttering a single word. Our friends from Denmark saw this and remarked that it looked like someone holding “parachute exercises”. The parachutes of forty plus sky divers over Atlanta at 5,000 feet up, without a single hint of descendi! ng? Highly unlikely! This was a curiosity that has stayed wi! th me to -date and I just wanted to report it here and now. I listen to you on the Jeff Rense show every single time you are on. I didn’t want to be one of those 99% you talk about that does not report their sightings. I always wanted to see the typical saucer shape craft with a dome on top. Little did I think I would see an entire “fleet” of UFOs.

I’ll keep my eyes peeled over-head in hopes that I will someday catch a glimpse of my ideal saucer. Until then, thank you for letting me share my experience of some 8 years ago.
