Video of Blue Angles airshow from 1953 shows two shiny saucers orbiting a common point.

I was watching a TV show on the Blue Angels. It was there first airshow ever. It was 1953 and the planes were taking off from an airstrip. In the background in this color video about 20 degrees up and a maybe 5 miles away are two glowing silver saucer objects circling each other in an orbit maybe a mile across. Motion of both objects is clear and they are very distinct from the darker planes of the Blue Angels and the other aircraft visible on the ground and flying by.

((NUFORC Note: We believe that the first possibility to be ruled out would be blimps, perhaps blimps operated by the U. S. Navy, but that is only a guess. In 1953, back when the news media still covered UFO sightings, if the objects had, in fact, been genuine UFO's, the incident probably would have given rise to news reports. PD))
