Location: Tucson, AZ
Shape: Oval
Duration:45 seconds
THERE WAS NO LIGHT DISTORTION AROUND THE RED BALLS.

SAW AN OBJECT MADE UP OF 5 OR 6 RED BALLS, SPEEDING SOUTH, JUST UNDER LOW CLOUD COVER. THEY WERE CLOSE TO 4 MILES AWAY FROM MY VIEWING POINT.

THE SKY WAS COVERED WITH THICK CLOUDS FROM THE AFTERNOON RAIN, WITH BOTTOMS ABOUT 1000' AGL.

CRAFT MADE NO SOUND, BUT WAS GOING AT WHAT I ESTIMATE WAS 300 TO 400 MPH...WAS WITHIN THE CLASS C AIRSPACE THAT HAS A 210 MPH SPEED LIMIT...NO ENGINE NOISE OR ROTOR CHOP NOISES. WAS OUT OF SIGHT IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF MY VIEW WITHIN 45 SECOUNDS.

PILOTS CALL THIS "SCUD RUNNING." BUT THIS WAS NOT GENERAL AVIATION STUFF.
