Rose Bowl Disks

Peter, I'm not sure how this will help your research but I would like to submit my sighting. During the summer of 91 or 92 I saw the following: My friend and I were flying kites at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. If it wasn't for that fact we would not have saw what we did. We were seeing how high we could get our kites on a light windy day when out of the corner of my eye I saw three disks. I pointed them out to my buddy and we stood there speechless. They were traveling on an approximate magnetic heading of 360 to 010 degrees at a 80 degree angle from the horizon so almost directly overhead. From my perspective it was from the right to left. They were solid luminescent white in appearance in a close triangle formation like military jets. They were at high altitude traveling at extreme speed on a straight course. At arms length they each would be the size of a dime. They traversed the sky in about 6-8 seconds. Traveling much faster than the speed of sound. They made no sound, and no sonic boom. About me: I'm a private pilot with about 5 years flying experience. I've been an aviation enthusiast since I was a kid attending many air shows at Edwards Air Force Base, Point Magu and many other locations. Including the Edwards 50th anniversary where the SR71 flew at plus mach speeds. I've also seen the Space Shuttle land there many times so I know these disks were traveling at extreme speeds. By silhouette alone I can identify every aircraft know to the public. I've also been reading Aviation week magazine for years. These disks are not conventional aircraft to say the least. Thank you for your work.
