Duration:20 minutes
Oddly shaped black object hovering high in the daytime sky for about 20 minutes and then dissappearing.

At about 16:30 on a Saturday afternoon, while at work as a security guard, I happened to be using binoculars to look at a high flying jet that was leaving a contrail when I came across an object that I could not identify (which, since I have been interested in astronomy and have been watching the sky both day and night my whole life, means that it REALLY is unidentifiable). Quickly scanning the sky with my binoculars, I found three other identical objects. The objects, which appeared as two black spheres one over the top of the other and connected by a thin short rod (simillar to a barbell stood on end), had no wings or rotors but still hovered in place. These objects were high enough in the sky that they could not be seen without binoculars. After watching the objects for about 20 minutes, I tried shifting position in order to steady my binoculars and get a better look at the objects. This took maybe five seconds, but when I looked for the objects from my new position, all four of them had disappeared and could not be found again.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. If the event occurred on a Saturday, it would have been June 1st, 8th, 15th, or 22nd of 1996. PD))
