|Group of small dark egg/orb shaped items which seemed to vanish. Corner of 29th and S. Douglas Blvd..
I was driving home from work when I had stopped at a red light on the corner of 29th and S. Douglas Blvd near Tinker Air Force Base. Many multiple dark, ball shaped (what I had assumed were balloons)things were slowly floating in a westerly direction. I had seen a small convoy of school buses go by, so I just thought that maybe the school had just released a bunch of balloons for some celebration and didn't think much about it. They looked exactly like what you see when a large amount of helium balloons is released....just floating slowly.
I looked down for what couldn't be more than a couple seconds and then back up to check if the street light had changed when they were all gone from sight. There is no feasible explanation for their disappearance. Even if somehow every single "balloon" had popped at the same moment, they would still be falling to the ground. There was absolutely nothing to been seen. They either flew off at a high rate of! speed, or just vanished.
This is a fairly busy intersection, and there is no doubt that at least a handful of people seen this event. They were floating what seemed to be about a half block north of 29th St over South Douglas Blvd. They were maybe at a 20 degree angle from my vantage point. A couple of drivers began to honk their horns at the same time, and it didn't appear that there was any reason warranted due to anyone's driving. Hopefully some people will come forward to share their experience too.
The date is probably not correct, but it's close. They were there one second and then just popped out of existence... It sounds silly, I know, but I have been around many aircraft, and not a single one I know of could fly off that fast...or be so slow in the air (besides helicopters of course).
As I drove onto 29th, I noticed that the wind was blowing north-east...not west. Thank you for hearing my story.
