Location: Jefferson, ME
Shape: Other
Duration:20 minutes
On 04/04/14. at approx. 18:00 hrs. 5 extremely bright white objects, very high up, straight flat wings, slight curved corners

At approximately 6p.m., my neighbor called me to say that he had been observing over a dozen unknown objects in the sky. He asked me if I could see them from my house, so I went outside and yes, I could see 2 of them for a short time. One of them veered off into nothingness, and the other one seemed to climb higher and then vanished.

When they disappeared from view, I came back inside to find my binoculars. Here is what I saw: With the binoculars I could see 3 more. At first I wondered if they were some kind of a very large bird, but they seemed to be so high up that it didn’t seem logical. They were extremely white and bright with straight wings, but the ends were flat with slightly rounded corners.

Then, I wondered if it could be a piper cub plane, but it was so very high up, that did not make sense either. They simply cruised, sometimes curving back like a bird of prey might do, and then other times they turned direction and came back in a straight line.

My total viewing time with the binoculars was approximately 20 minutes. I also wondered if it was a fleet of drones.

I must stress that the most important aspects of this sighting are that they were extremely white, that they were extremely high up, and that the wings were not bird like at the tips, but straight out, flat at the ends, with slightly rounded tips.

Thank you for your time and all the work you do.
