Description: It’s late afternoon as I noticed in the sky, a large thick dark cloud was moving quickly from west coast to inland east, as if a twister was forming. But further away of the cloud, one can see the sunny and bright blue sky.
As I looked to the sky through my kitchen window which faced the eastern backyard. I noticed some shinny objects were hovering just below the cloud.The objects appeared flying in two formations. At first I suspected two groups of Canada geese flying East from west, but with some bright lights underneath them in a chain link shape, but not connected. So, I went and grabbed my binocular quickly and took a close look from my upstairs window with no obstruction in view and clearly saw those were not birds. They were more like big round lights hanging underneath something and obviously not the kind of drones that I thought. I could see the cloud between those lights as if there’s no frame or structure attached to them.
The group hovered in one direction with V shape formation with about 6 or 7 lights on each side. They moved slowly in and out the cloud momentarily then slowly drifted into the distant cloud. They simply did not look like birds and made NO noise.
Just as I thought this was over, another singular group showing up behind them about 1/2 a minute later. This one was led by a much bigger bright light in front and slowly following the same direction into the high cloud and gone.
How big were they? I guessed it’s about a size of a small plane for each formation. I waited another 15 minutes and there’s no more objects. I wished I had my camera, but I was just too excited and their appearance was so short.
I hope someone can convince me this is something else as I never see anything like that before.
