Location: Bakersfield, CA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 1 min
Characteristics: The object emitted other objects
Dark disk or hole in sky motionless, small shiney object looked to exit and fly away from dark one at high speed.

Accured in Bakersfield California and objects were over the vicinity of bear mountain between Bakersfield, Arvin, and Tehachapi california.

during a sunny day with clear skys i saw a large dark (completely black) circle in the blue sky. it appeared to be very large and very high. Realative diameter would be the same as a dime held at arms length. the dark circle was motionless and appeared very suddenly in an area i had already been looking and did not see how it apeared it was suddenly just there. it was so dark and round with no light reflection that it looked like a literal hole in the sky. after about 20 or 30 seconds I witnessed a much smaller object move from the dark circle and move at high speed directly to the south. the smaller object was bright white or silver in color with a high ammount of reflection from the sun which was behind me. the smaller object moved to the south east untill it was out of site, i turned my attention back to the larger dark circle and it was still there motionless for several seconds longer, i took my eyes off of it for just about 3 to 5 seconds to attempt to use my video camera which I forgot i had next to me on the bench. when I could not see the dark circle through the viewfinder I looked with my naked eye to make sure i had the camera at the right angle, but when I looked up it was gone.

The dark circle stuck out very well against the blue sky which I had a good area of view of but could not see it anywhere, it was gone as suddenly as it came. and i regret I did not see how it functioned to come and go. was it a hole that closed up? or a craft that accelerated quickly or turned on some kind of optical stealth? who knows.

the difference in size between the large dark circle and the small shiney object was equivalent to a boweling ball and a small marble
