Duration: 1 hour +-
Around noon time as I was coming up Ynez Rd. I saw three sphere shaped objects high in the sky. I believe they were silver, as the sun was brightly reflected off of them. What caught my eye was that one of the spheres was making impossible movements. It was moving back and forth in perfect swinging pendulum types movements. It was moving very quickly like this, back and forth for some time. I parked my car in a parkin lot on Ynez and Winchester Road and continued to watch a bit longer. There were two other sphere shaped objects above, however, they remained stationary. At one point, the sphere that was moving had attracted two large hawks to it. The two birds and the sphere seemed to engage in a playful game together. I think this is significant because comparing the sphere to the birds, I would say the sphere would be about 3 to 4 feet in diameter. I sat and watched this for about 45 minutes total. At 1300 hrs, I ducked my head back into my car (I had been standing outside of my car) just long enough to unbuckle my baby from his car seat. When I got him out, and looked back into the sky, all that was left was the two birds. There were no signs of the spheres anywhere.
