Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Single Cigar shaped UFO of a dull pewter matalic color with no wings.
Size of Object(s)
Jets were moving at high speeds in formation behind UFO at perhaps 100 or more times the length of the Jets. UFO appeared to be at least twice as long as Jets.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Observed at high altitude, moving in straight line in SSW direction.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Urban area. No obstructions in my view. Moffitt NAS is near by, but Jets were Air Force. I am a skilled observer of military aircraft.
Full Description & Details
Two Air Force jets from Hamilton chase a cigar shaped UFO at high speed on clear day in 1959 or 1960 (I believe). Viewed from my back yard in Cupertino/San Jose, CA. I saw a burst of white/gray smoke between the Jets and the UFO which then made a quick burst of speed and disappeared over mountians towards Santa Cruz. Jets then continued in their high speed, but very slow in comparison. Have more detail, but need to find this quote on your website to determine if this is the sighting I saw. I first read this quote in True Magazine in the 60s.. Need more information.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No way. They were the only objects in the sky at the time.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Did not think much of them before, but convinced now. No idea what they are except they exist.
