Back in 1987 I was attending collage in Santa Fe New Mexico. At approximately 16:00 hours myself and two friends were on campus near a field shooting at gophers with bows and arrows. One of my friends shot an arrow straight up in the sky and while we were watching the arrow go up we noticed a lot of bright, white colored shiny dots way up in the sky. We counted at least thirty of them. They were in a cluster shape and were moving around. Some appeared large and some very small. They seemed like stars, they twinkled. We also noticed a commercial airline jet flying overhead leaving a trail. By comparing the jet to the objects it seemed as if the jet was flying through them, also some of the objects seemed way above the jet and the larger ones below the jet. One of my friends went running back to the dorms to get his binoculars. The sky was blue and cloudless with no wind. The objects moved slowly to the Southwest. I am interested in what you think these objects were and if any one else has seen them. My friend said they were silver colored and round shaped, by the time I got to look through the binoculars they were gone.
