|Dual White/Black/Red Ovalesques over Clear Lake, Texas
My office cubical is on the sixth floor of a building in the Clear Lake, Texas area, and it has a large bank of windows with a view of the east-south-east towards Galveston Bay. I was standing at that bank of windows when, to my north-east, I saw two oval objects seem to rise together out of the trees in a nearby neighborhood. What impressed me were two things: 1. The difference in altitude remained very constant. The forward-aft distance changed slightly, but they seemed fixed to each other in altitude from each other.
2. Both objects looked identical, but with variations in color/configuration. These changes were seen in unison.
Also, we have a lot of traffic to and from Ellington airfield, including formation flights of the local Air National Guard. These were most definitely F-16's as the ANG unit uses, and their relative position/speed was much slower than that of any plane at the apparent alititude.
As for a description of the objects: 1. Somewhat oval in shape with possibly points to the side.
2. The main bulk was white, the bottom black, and some red on the top surface. The shape and relative proportion of these features changed periodically during it's visibility to me.
I watched the objects transit from their position along a rough vector west to possibly north-west. After Two minutes, the objects passed beyond the corner of the building. I was not able to re-aquire the objects in view after that.
One more side note, probably coincidental: I saw flying along the same basic vector, shortly after the objects were obscured from my view, a small aircraft, possibly a helicopter. It was moving much faster than the two previous objects.
