Full Description of event/sighting: Hi Brian, a friend and I were spending some time with my brother at his country home. Sometime around 9:00 pm we stepped outside to take a look at the sky, there were thunderstorm warnings and we were curious about how they were shaping up.
We found that we were surrounded by gigantic storm clouds that took a horseshoe shape around us, we were sitting in a very still air mass with the storm clouds many miles away in all directions.
It was a storm like none of us have ever seen, the lightning was contained within the clouds, mostly running horizontally over incredible distances. There was even a bright red ball that followed the top of the cloud formation from left to right, then returned to the left and disappeared. I know that these atmospheric phenomena are easily explainable, it was what we saw next that really caught our attention.
We noticed that there were quite a few aircraft that seemed to be flying close to the top of the cloud formation to the north, the sky was very dark but we could see their red and white lights flashing. They would fly over the storm towards the east then return to where they started, I think there might have been three of them at one time. Remember, we're watching this from at least 20 miles away.
The next thing we saw was the strangest. The sky above us was perfectly clear, when we looked directly above our heads we saw a bright white light traveling towards the east. It was perfectly round, it almost looked like a cool white light bulb taking a straight path through the sky. Then we noticed the airplane that was following it on exactly the same path, probably about 3 seconds behind it. We discussed it to try to determine their altitude, the plane seemed to be around 1/2 inch from wingtip to wingtip at arm's length. This led us to believe that they were only a couple of thousand feet above us. The round light was at least as big as the plane following it.
By the time the white light entered the cloud bank and disappeared, the plane had fallen way behind, it disappeared about 10 seconds later.
I tried to get footage with my video camera, I was able to catch a lot of the lightning inside the cloud bank but the sky was too dark to capture the smaller objects, I couldn't see anything in my viewfinder while trying to film the white ball and its escort.
By the way, American military aircraft regularly fly over this area when they're traveling from the Plattsburgh air force base to the Maine base.
Thank you to the witness for the report.
