Shape: Formation
Duration:10 minutes +
30-50 white/silver discs in broad daylight.

While in the dentist's chair, I looked out the window and saw 30-50 objects in 2-3 tight formations hovering in the western sky. All of the objects were identical in size and shape and very near each other, in patterns not unlike that of birds. The objects were white, and in the course of their movements tilted from side to side. It was a clear day, and when the objects tilted toward the sun, they flashed silver glints. They remained in the same patch of sky for the entire 10 min. + period, moving up and down slightly. One group of objects, on the right hand side of the cluster, swirled around each other. As far as I could tell, none of them ever bumped into each other or crossed paths, and there was always the same amount of space between them no matter which direction they moved. I got to look at them twice, but the third time I checked, they were gone. I didn't see what direction they moved off, or at what speed.
