Duration:1-11/2 hr
I witnessed these craft first on 07//3/01, @10:30am, approx. in the same area, that I witnessed them on 7/08/01. They seemed to be doing some type of arial exercise. Then at 11:05am, a passenger plane that had just taken off from LAX, was making its turn around the So. Bay area, , when all five saucer craft left its current position and went after the plane. I witnessed the passenger plane abruptly make a sharp turn and ascend to a higher altitude, when the craft began approaching the plane. They followed the jet for @ 40 sec. and returned to its original location. On Sunday 07/08/01, at 6:00pm I was looking up at the sky when I noticed a bright object, that appeared to be as bright as a star, I retreived my binoculars, and brought them into focus, and saw a Large triangular object, with lights under it which appeared to be changing color from an amber color to a fiery red, which could have be the suns reflection. I continued observing the object to make sure it wasn't just mylar balloons, but the object remained stationary, where as balloons will drift with the air current. ( There was a breeze that had also pick up in the early evening.) I went in the house to get family members to witness this occurance, and when spotting the object with the binoculars, I also then witnessed 5 additional craft , however these were saucer shaped, and were hovering also to the left of the large triangular object. These craft were not moving for some time, aprrox. 1-1 1/2 hr. in the sky.
