|Three small white orbs flying erratically extremely high in a perfectly blue sky during broad daylight.
I was laying down on the back of my truck, looking at the clouds. It was a beautiful day, the sky was bright blue. I was watching birds flying by and then I began looking at the vast blue of the sky. As my eyes adjusted to changing depths, an object caught my eye. It was a very small white orb. It appeared to be either emitting its own light, or reflecting the Sun's. This is because it kept a constant color. At first I thought it might be a star or planet, since I'm quite unexperienced with object of the sky. However, the longer I watched it, the more I realized how high in the sky it actually was. This was in contrast to passing planes, which looked very small from my perspective, and were still obviously lower than the object. I know this because at one point, the object moved behind some clouds that were passing by. At this point I really noticed how erratic its movement was; it slowed down and sped up; it was also moving in different directions. As I was! watching this first object, I saw another one very close to it. This one was moving much faster in the same direction as the first one, and there was yet another one following that one at the same speed. It appeared as if the third one was chasing the second one, as they were moving erratically. After around 8 minutes, they were all completely covered by a passing cloud, and by the time it passed and I could see the blue background again- I had lost all sight of the orbs.
Keep in mind all of this was occurring at a very high altitude and in a very small zone of the sky, as the objects looked extremely small from ground level. Although the objects were moving extremely fast (much faster than any airplane that was passing by AND they were farther up), they were not making a scene. I myself have near perfect vision and unless I was concentrating perfectly on the level of altitude they were in, they would blur away and disappear. It happened a few times if I looked in another direction, finding them again was a matter of focusing on very small spots on the sky and looking for motion in the peripherals. This leads me to believe that UFOs are more common than we think during the day, yet they are so difficult to spot.
