9 UFO's appeared and disolved into nothing before my eyes

In July and August 2004 I privy to a sight that has changed my thinking about UFO’s

I was out at my local golf course having a lone hand of golf at approximately 3.00 pm when saw and object in the sky that looked like giant sombrero. It was just hanging there, about 30 deg up on the horizon. The brim was jet black in color and the crown was a cream color.

I watched it for about 30 sec and I looked away for and instant and it was gone. There was not a single cloud in the sky on this day. I searched the sky but it was no where to be seen. There was just blue sky.

In August the same year I was practicing golf again at around the same time, 3.00 pm when I was attracted by a flash in the cloudless blue sky.

At first I couldn’t see anything, but then I saw a group of objects that I at first mistook for birds. They looked about the size of a dinner plate but as they descended and grew larger I could see that they were in fact discs. They were dull white in color and rising and falling as if they were riding a wave and going very slowly. They looked to be approximately 5 to 6 feet across. Estimating their true size was difficult as I had no idea how high they were.

I counted 9 of them, and as they leveled out in a very ragged two abreast formation, one then turned and went away to the south west, but when it reached a certain point it just pure and simply dissolved into nothing. I was absolutely amazed at what I was seeing.

I then turned my attention back to the others and focused on the next leading disc and it dissolved in the same manner. At first it began to go black at the front then turned into deep olive green and as it was turning at the same time I could just make out a bulge at the top before it dissolved into a cloud of black dots. Like pixels on a computer.

There was no flashing lights or any kind of noise. And all the while their speed never varied, each one of them disappeared at the same point in the cloudless blue sky as silent as they came.

The whole episode lasted for about two minutes.

I found this site by accident and decided to tell someone about what I saw.

I was very skeptical about the whole UFO scene, but not now.
