Location: Beale AFB, CA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:3 minutes
5 grey spheres directly over military aircraft taking off; daylight sighting.

Bright, clear day; no clouds. Driving due North along road same direction as airfield runway, witnessed military aircraft taking off at high climb rate; approx. 75% climb rate.

As aircraft reached about 200-300 feet above ground I noticed what appeared to be a "flock of grey birds" directly above the aircraft; approx 300-400 feet above the aircraft. I did a double take to make sure the "birds" were not in danger of hitting aircraft.

I then noticed that the "birds" were actually 5 grey spheres. The spheres appeared to be stationary above the rising aircraft. I decided to pull over to get a better look and some possible video or pictures.

4-6 seconds elapsed as I pulled over and re-looked at the area in the sky. The aircraft was still climbing; beginning to flatten out in its flight pattern.

I could not reaquire the 5 grey spheres. The spheres appeared to be stationary the entire time I had visual on them.
