|9pm, June 1st, 2007, Victoria, BC, dark spherical object approaching from the west, following 2 jets, chased by a third jet.
My wife and I were sitting outside on our patio, in downtown Victoria, BC, this evening around 9:00 pm, when we noticed two jets, within a very short time frame, both travelling over the city centre, headed east and following the same trajectory.
Shortly thereafter, we noticed a dark spherical object approaching at slow speed, also following the same easternly trajectory. We observed the object for approximately 2 minutes as it slowly moved across the sky in the direction the jets were headed. While watching the object, a third jet appeared - again following the exact same eastern path. When the third jet appeared to come within a very close proximity to the object, the object then changed course, and began to head south, directly above us, toward Port Angeles, Washington. We were able to continue to follow the object for a few more moments, until it eventually disappeared from sight.
At first we believed the object to be a balloon, or a cluster of balloons with something dragging beneath it, as it appeared to be drifting on an easternly wind current - however, when the object suddenly changed direction, and seemed to increase in altitude, we were less convinced that it was a balloon.
