Location: Honolulu, HI
Shape: Triangle
Duration: ~2 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Two silver triangular craft performing extreme nautical maneuvers in unison high in the air in a blue cloudless sky.

I left my house at about 10:00 a.m., on my way to pick up a friend. Recently there have been (more than usual) very loud military aircraft flying overhead, and I heard one. I stopped on the walkway to see what kind of plane it was, and saw a jet, a military F-15 or something (small 1 or 2 man plane), flying loudly from right to left. It had probably just taken off from Hickam AFB. It flew out of sight, and I looked at the sky to see if there were any more, though I didnít hear any. Then I saw something kind of sparkling and thought it was another one, only this time much higher in the sky. I watched it and could see that there were two seemingly identical but separate objects, flying together in exact and tight formation, both bright shiny silvery and thin triangular/arrowhead shaped, and flying very fast and very high in tight, eccentric circular movements. I first thought they might be two birds flying together, but they were so high up and so large that they would have had to be giant pterodactyls or some other mythical giant silver birds. No, they were definitely not birds. I watched them for about two minutes and they could not have been military jets, as no aircraft I had ever seen or heard of could perform such maneuvers at those heights and speeds. I kind of waved my hands in front of my eyes to make sure I wasn't seeing things and was sure that I wasn't hallucinating or delusional. I was, however, a bit startled. I had not been drinking or taking drugs. I went back into the house, as I had forgotten to take an item with me. When I returned to the walkway, they were gone or out of sight. I am currently retired after working the past 26 years as a medical transcriptionist. I had never previously seen a UFO.
