While I was working outside on my fence rows, I was burning tree branches in my garden. The wind shifted and I looked up to make sure no sparks were going to hit my roof, when I noticed a twin prop commercial plane heading south, appearing behind it, closing at a high rate of speed was a small silver object. Estimated speed of object 2000 miles per hour plus. I walked from the garden to my 800 foot front lawn, still watching both objects. The silver object seemed to come to a stop behind the small plane but stayed with the plane for about 20 seconds. All at once the object moved back towards me, made a loop, came to a dead stop and accelerated out of sight at a 45 degree angle. At that time I considered calling my wife outside, but hesitated. As I went back to the garden to check the fire, a commercial jet heading south about the same altitude, flew over. I proceeded to observe this one also. From the northeast sky another silver ball closed in on the jet, staying behind the jet about one half mile. This one was weaving from side to side. It stayed behind the jet for about one minute. It then sped off in the same direction as the other object. This one seemed to travel a little faster then the first object. At this time I called my wife outside. As my wife came down onto the front lawn, two more objects appeared, not accompanied by any commercial aircraft. They both raced off to the east. My wife did not see these objects at this time as they moved too quickly for her to catch sight of them. I went into the house to get my binoculars. I do not own a video camera, which I really regret. At this time my wife and I started noticing a dark area, we are not sure if it was a cloud, fog or mist forming directly overhead, it appeared to be 25000-35000 feet high, estimated. It looked like it stretched in symetrical shape, about two miles. As this "cloud" seemed to get darker activity increased, at this time only with small objects appeared. Now my wife started to see them also. Let me state at this time the sky! to the north, south, east and west of this "cloud" was extremely clear and blue, except for the "cloud" directly overhead. My wife stated at this time"they do not seem to be coming from the outskirts of the horizon, but from the "perimeter" of the "cloud" area". For about a fifteen second burst, way off to the south, two smaller objects trailing behind one larger object, the larger object being three times larger then the small objects ,they seemed to be swaying back and forth behind the larger one, similar to a kite tail. They came and went so quickly my wife didn't see them. Remember, I had been looking through binoculars. These objects seemed to just disappear from my sight. For the next 4-5 minutes the cloud, mist, fog got a darker grey in color. My wife sighted two large silver objects traveling side by side from the northeast heading southwest, from the perimeter to the center of the cloud formation, when they got to the center of the cloud area they disappeared from her sight, she did not see them come out of the cloud area. At the same time I myself observed other objects, two large ball shapes exiting the southeast corner of the cloud, they were moving half the speed of the smaller objects observed earlier. This lasted for about forty seconds.Immediately after these seperate sightings, the cloud increased to its darkest color and we sighted a silver boomarang, vee shaped object heading east-southeast.,it was moving much slower than the rest,it seemed to have sqared off wings at the ends,the size was about 1/and 1/2 times bigger than a 747 airplane,again all objects had no sounds,for the next couple off minutes nothing appeared ,where it came from i am not sure, but heading in the same direction as the v object ,an older military plane which had those pontoon type ends on the wings ,the wings were straight.,seemed to be following the v, let me also state it was an extremly wide v, dusk was now stating to set in,and it seemed now the so called cloud was almost gone, these were not off this earth. as my ! wife sta ted to me this was some type off portal, or cloking devise , on this planet no one has this tech. yet.
