Posted: 2/12/2004
Location: New Orleans, LA
Shape: Sphere
Duration: less then 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
They were flying in a tight fomation like fighter jets do, but they were no fighter jets.

Well I was out side looking up at the roofer on the roof who was cutting a hole in the roof for my Vent pipe to come through for my HVAC system I was installing, when what I thought at 1st to be 2 ballons flying over head. After taking a better look I relized these were no ballons. They were flying together in a tight fomation like figther jets do, and moving very fast in a straight line. These objects where moving from west to east along the Mississippi River. The 2 objects where silver or could have been white in color and were round inshape, they were about 1200 feet off the ground and were making no sound at all. The sky was clear in the area I saw these objects, another thing I noticed that there were a lot of Jets in the sky on this day, some very high and some kinda low but more jets then usual. I can say this much, these things were like nothing I have ever seen before. After seeing these ojects I noticed they made me somewhat confussed and even a little frighten, really hard to explain the feeling that came over me after seeing them.

I hear people on the TV say they see things in the sky and often I wonder if they are telling the truth. Well here I am one of those people and I do belive them now. I am a 44 year old healthy male with a wife and 3 kids, I am also a small Air Conditioning Contractor, and after today I really do look at UFO's sightings in a different way. I will be looking up in the skys more often now for sure. All this took place in the day time right about 12:30 pm in New Orleans La.
