Monongahelia National Forest/Marlingto Road UFO Formation sighting.

While on the return leg of a late evening bicycling trip on a WV state highway through Monongahelia National Forest, I glanced up into a clear blue, cloudless sky to see 5 objects traveling in formation out of the south-west.

Shape: Imagine a ball positioned in front in the direction of travel in super bright neon blue tapering to a point with a length equal to about 3 or 4 times the diameter of the leading ball.

In addition, imagine this blue shape surrounded with a slightly larger identical shape in super bright neon green.

Had I glanced up one second or two later, I would have missed the sighting due to the tree tops on each side of the road providing only a small section of sky view directly above the road.

The objects made no noise and were similar in size, but not all the same traveling about 10 times faster than a jet at high altitude.

The next week, a TV show called "SIGHTINGS" reported the same sighting out in the western part of the USA.

The sighting date year could be 95 or 96. The time of year is correct.
