Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 min
Two shimmering copper-colored craft with no noise were seen flying from north to south

Two craft were spotted passing directly overhead and were seen until lost in haze to the south. Both were identical in shape and in color: Something like an oval with triangular wings, but not like any jet or plane silouette I've ever seen. What was really bizarre was the color was a coppery-gray and the whole craft shimmered in appearance, as though we were watching through a hot exhaust. Both planes moved in tandem, and the second weaved gently around the first, moving back and forth from four-o'clock to one-o'clock (relative to the first). The overall movement of both craft was steady, swift and silent. My wife and I and a friend saw the craft initially, and as we alerted other friends inside, others came out and saw the craft shortly before we lost sight of it. Also: my wife and I were just reading other sightings, and the description of the craft reported in Bangalore India sounds exactly like this one, except that we couldn't see enough detail of the crafts, and we think it didn't fade away.
