Reported: 6/5/2014 2:58:51 PM 14:58
Posted: 6/6/2014
Location: Reno, NV
Shape: Circle
Duration: ~60 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
5-8 objects over Reno, NV.

Using my 20 x 80 Celestron Skymaster binocs, while observing a large 4 engine jet heading south, I saw these objects pass in the opposite direction.

These objects appeared to be moving at the same rate of speed in formation. The formation was in a broken arrow shape. Maybe 4 in a line with 2 or 3 offset.

I followed the formation from my chair and saw the offset 2 or 3 objects move ahead of the group to create an almost even line side by side.

The best I can describe them objects is a small can shape. Shiny and silvery with a white and almost orange bottom.

The skies where clear and sunny.

When I stood to follow the formation I lost view and was never able to find the formation again.

While I could have mistaken weather balloons I've never seen a cluster of balloons. And I've never seen balloons maneuver like this.
