Location: Irvine, CA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 minute
Four spheres flying in pairs apparently in formation swooped down and away and dissapeared in a flash.

I was watching a rescue helicopter fly above my parents house directly following a brief earthquake and noticed four interesting objects in the sky obove the saddleback mountains. They where close enouph for me to see that they where not the jets that normally fly in the area from the El Toro Marine base wich has been closed for a while now with no activity. These were round like a ball and I wouldn't say they where much larger than an f-14. They were flying south/east and went down slightly and it looked like they went suddenly north and just disappeared. I was amased and confused because I have never seen anything weird in the sky that I couldn't explain. They were round with no lights, grey in color. The sun was in a position where the top half of the body was lit and grey in color and the bottom half was darker as if in the shadow of the sun. That's all I know and i am interested in seeing if anyone else in my area had wittnessed this event.
