Shape: Circle
Duration:2 minutes
Multiple white circular objects at high altitude appear suddenly, cluster in a group and then disappear.

While standing outside watching intermittent local airplane traffic I noticed three or so objects directly overhead and very high in the sky, beyond commercial jet altitudes.

The day was clear, sunny and cloudless, and no planes were in the vicinity at the time of the sighting.

The objects were circular in shape but not spherical, dime-sized and white in color, emitting no noticeable light. They did not fly into view from a particular direction but rather just appeared in the area of sky I happened to be watching.

For approximately 15 to 20 seconds they were moving in a general area relative to one another, then seemed to cluster into a tighter group.

Immediately after that, 2 or 3 more objects appeared within the group. This lasted maybe 10 or 15 seconds before 2 or 3 more appeared within the group making the total number of objects 8 or so. They remained in this cluster for another 30 seconds before seeming to vanish with no discernible movement in an! y direction.

The entire sighting lasted roughly 2 minutes.
