Summer 1995 Memphis, Tn.

I'm at work with several other people. Slow day, so a few of us are hangin' around outside helping one of the guys work on his car. We are in the parking lot of a small strip-mall. (Not all of these sightings happen out in cow country.) Two of us go inside to get a few sodas, on our way way back outside we hear one of the others yelling "Get out here, you gotta see this sh*t!" We ran. It sounded like an emergency from the tone of voice. So there we are a group of five all pointing up at the sky slack-jawed. The traffic just keeps goin' by like theres not any UFOs dancing around in the sunset.

There were 3 "craft" from what we could tell. Each identical to the other, they were shaped like a discus and appeared to be a metallic color with a soft glowin' white halo that surrounded them. They flew in perfect unison and in ways that seemed impossible, especially to what we know of as vehicular flight. It only lasted a minute or two but the lil' airshow was spectacular. As they flew away (quite fast), it was like all 3 "ships" flew into each other and became one burst of light... poof... gone.

One of the guys, the manager, comes out just in time to see the last half of it. He drops whatever he was holding. This is were I get confused. He can't believe what he sees... even while 5 of us point it out. He goes into complete denial on the spot. To this day I'm sure he wouldn't admit to it. He didn't go into hysterics or anything like that, its just that He went back inside saying "No. Nope. No way." Which was actually stranger than seeing what were probably our own creation. I should note that this happened not far from the Millington Navy Airbase NAS Memphis. (Formerly the largest by enrollment and most active training center for new Navy & Marine pilots.) We stood around outside, looking up & talking for several minutes afterward making sure that we all saw the same thing. (except the manager)
