|Just after 3pm, I went outside to smoke a cigarette. It's a beautiful clear day here today, and I noticed that the sky was really blue for a change. So I was just staring up in amazement.
I look towards the east and it looked like birds circling around, but upon second glance, I noticed a pin sized light in each object. There were roughly 10-15 objects. As I watched, they continued flying in circular formation, criss crossing one another, at the same time rising higher and higher.
I ran inside to grab my phone and tried to record it, but when I got back out, (literally 3 seconds later) the objects were so high in the sky I could barely see them anymore. My camera could not detect anything. I continued watching them move up, and a little southeast until they finally disappeared completely.
All of this happened within the timeframe of 1 minute, just minutes past the 3 o'clock hour, central time.
