Full Description & Details

like a fool I ran to my car which had in it a cb radio to put this on the air forgetting it was a tube type and the saucers were gone by the time the radio worked. the saucers looked to be maby 50 feet around each and were flying at maby 10k ft. one was at the point and the others were to the rear and formed a wedge. they made no noise at all and the sparks being emitted reminded me of theold friction toys. the sparks seemed to be large orange balls that disapeared quickly.round,

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

they were the color of military aircraft I always figured they were ours but Ive never heard of sparks being emitted and they made no noise but were close enough for me to have herd engines.

Witness Background

at the time of all this I worked as a mechanic at a gm dealer with just a high school education. since then I have had many jobs and have owned my own body and paint shop, and have years exp. with electrostatic painting and spray foam insulation. I am retired now but drive a school bus.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

not much only when a child in the 40s thought dinner plates were what every one was seeing

Other Comments

Scott af base is just 40 miles away and lambert field 50 miles away but nothing was mentioned on news reports so they must not have showed up on radar or not mentioned at all if they did.
