Duration: 45 sec
I was looking at what I thought were 2 birds flying from the SE. (I live 2 blocks from the water; Clear Lake, Gulf of Mexico). The flight pattern resembled birds flying around each other. As they got closer, it was apparent that they were not birds. There were 2 spheres flying around each other, on a rotating axis. As they flew over me, the axis became perpendicular with the ground. At that point, they were in a rotating pattern, alternating there rotation 180 degrees, back and forth, all the while, traveling in a straight line from the SE.

The sighting lasted approximately 45 seconds to 1 minute. Line of sight was approximately 160 to 170 degrees. The size of the objects I would compare to a common Frisbee at 100 ft. The 2 objects were black in color, and identical in size to each other.

I am ex USAF. I have lived in this area for the last 10 years. My proximity to Johnson Space Center (NASA) and Ellington Field has afforded me the opportunity to see most all normal activity in the area. (T-38s, F-14s etc.)
