Daytime Objects Unexplained

This took place at approximately 9:00 am on 8/8/08 in McAllen Texas

A warehouseman happened to look out the dock doors and was attracted by a strange cloud formation. Upon looking up at the clouds he happened to see two bright objects traveling from South to North. He said they were rather flat in shape and looked about the size of a pencil eraser at arms length.

He called others to come see this, consequently making it about six people that witnessed this. The warehouseman said they watched these things for approximately two to three minutes and in that time the objects made a couple of strange maneuvers.

After traveling together one object appearing to follow the other seemed to get closer to each other then came to a sudden stop for maybe a second or two then continued towards a cloud then going behind the cloud. The warehouseman said that all this time the objects were very bright as if they were giving off a reflection from the sun. He described it like looking at the glimmer of a windshield when the sun hits it.

When the objects went behind the cloud they began to ascend together gradually disappearing from eyesight.
