At 4:13 PM I heard jets going over head of lake havasu, Az where we live. I went out side and looked trying to find them and while trying to find them I spotted this object to the east of my location. I watched as it slowly went east-northeast very slowly and then it stopped. It stayed in one location for about 30 seconds and the jets came back around and came into my view under the object. I estamated the alitude of the object at about 15 to 20 thousand ft, as it went east over the mountian range east of my house. It appeared to be a circular object and was very bright and then dem. I thought this was odd and watched two more jets come around into my view. At that point in went inside and go my binoculars and came back outside and looked for about 15 seconds until I spotted it again and put the glasses on it. As I watched it the jets just kept coming around in circles. There were four of them, two each close to each other, maybe 20 seconds apart in my view. As the went by they were always under the object. As the jets came around the object went higher. I watched until I could no longer hear the jets or see the 0bject in my view through the glasses. The jets were military and I could make them out very well when it first started. I have watched many objects at night here in AZ but never reported them. They are always to the east southeast, in the direction of Phoenix and the air force base.This was the first time I have seen an object in the day light that was that clear and close that I could tell that it was not an airliner or military jet. I watch jetliners going over at night and can see them clear enough to almost tell you what the company is.
