On Friday August 15 just after noon I was laying on my yoga mat in my back yard when I noticed a very tiny luminescent object that was obviously much higher then the birds or even the odd aircraft that I spotted moving around in various holding patterns.The very bright object was too small to make out any one point I thought it was a sphere & at another a disc.The object was moving in a very rapid & jittery pattern unlike anything I had seen before almost like a leaf caught in a whirlwind.It was shortly joined by another similar object that suddenly appeared then shot off at a incredible pace arcing over the 90 degrees or so of sky to the horizon.I estimate the time for this to occur as about five to seven seconds(I have never seen anything move this fast at such a apparent altitude).The day was a bright & mainly cloudless however even at high noon these objects appeared quite bright,much bright albeit smaller than the aircraft or even high the flying seagulls around at the time.I then ran into the house to get my son(22 years old) & when I returned we notice the first object gone but a third one was traversing the sky rapidly like the second one to the north son also thought this was definitely a "UFO" type of object & not something else as well.He went back inside & within a couple of minutes I saw what appeared like a fourth object fly straight overhead & quickly,again in the 5 to 7 second range,from mid sky east to the horizon.Truly amazing these phenomena were like nothing we had seen before.I have listened to you Peter & other researchers for a number of years on Jeff's show as well as on the coast to coast show & have often speculated about this area but never seen anything.Anyway I thought about just letting it go but upon thinking it over the sighting seemed too unequivocal not to file a report for what it is worth.Keep up you good work Peter,I enjoy your dedication,rigor & articulateness in this puzzling area of study.
