Duration:8 min
Group of 19 small, white bright objects traveling around larger white object seen in El Paso Texas skies.

The location and weather: Above BIGGS Airfield, El Paso, TX. It was a beautiful clear day, no clouds and around 78 Fahrenheit.

Description: One large white object, oval and moving very slowly towards the mountains. Around the large oval object were about 19 smaller, objects looming around the larger object. There was a very big difference in size between the larger object and the other smaller ones. The large one was very easy to see. The smaller ones were very small and spread out. With much difficulty we were able to count 19 of the smaller ones.

Their shape: The large one had the shape of a jellyfish oval on top and flatter on the bottom with shaded area on bottom. The small objects were bright white specks such as a star might look in the daytime. However, these were not stars. They were spread out around the white object and stayed around it for 5-10 minutes. After that, we were only able to see the bigger object and no longer saw the bright specks anywhere.

There was air traffic in the area, bith civil and air force.

Our background: First observer = wife; educator in school district. Second observer=husband; real estate. Third observer = 7 year old son; 2nd grade student
