|Two Disks or Saucers seen gliding side by side before doing some acrobatic maneuvers.
It was around 5:20pm when I was leaving work to go home. As I was going around toward the driver's side of my car, I happened to look upward at the sky. It was then that I saw two round disks or saucer shaped objects gliding through the air side by side. They did not move any faster than if you were watching a bird fly against the wind. They appeared to be very dark in color, not reflecting any light from the sun which was now setting at the horizon. The two disks were gliding side by side with only what seemed like a yard or two of space apart. They glided over the two story building that I worked at, traveling west to east making no audible noise that I could hear over the sound of traffic nearby. I was trying hard to make some sense of what I was seeing. Not birds...not balloons...certainly not any conventional airplanes. Perhaps, they were very large round kites that got away from someone who was testing them out. But, there was hardly any wind at all. What is keeping them a float and moving along steady without much wind, I thought. Satisfied with the idea of some new kite invention that went astray, I unlocked and opened my car door.
Before getting in, I looked upward once more just in time to see the two disk shaped objects begin tumbling through the air and then occasionally spinning around each other at a very rapid rate of acceleration and then in opposite directions. Obviously, this was a complete shock. Despite the crazy tumbling and rapid acceleration of spining around each other, the disks avoided a collision as though there was some kind of invisible force field that kept them from hitting each other. ALL the while, they still maintained a steady course in an easterly direction.
This sighting took place in no more than one minute before it passed out of view behind nearby trees. I would put the height of these objects at the same height you would see most small planes fly. I would give my best judgement that the diameter of these twin disk if at ground level could have been between 9 to 11 feet.
The last few seconds of this sighting convinced me that these objects were controled by some kind of advanced technology, because of the unusual accelerations and manuvers of the objects. Possibly, a new generation of nerds working on a special project for a start up company may be behind this. Time will tell!
