Full Description of Event/Sighting: Two separate sightings:

Number 1 Sighting: Photos at:

This is the leading-edge of a storm front that was coming. As I watched the clouds getting nearer, I noticed a bunch of white spheres flittering about, in and out of the leading edge of the clouds. I ran into the house and grabbed my camera which is equipped with a 70-300mm telephoto lens and captured these images.

The spheres were at different altitudes and traveling at different speeds, making impossible maneuvers for any conventional aircraft to accomplish. They were lining-up in front of the cloud's edge before getting a "running start" when entering the clouds, gaining speed very fast in a short distance. Sometimes one at a time, sometimes several at once, like they were competing. Then emerge slowly through the top of the clouds and back over the front edge. And then go through the process again.

I observed this for about 5 minutes and then they entered the clouds and didn't emerge. Altitude was much to high for our seagulls and I can distinguish birds from animate objects. These were definitely round, didn't have wings and were traveling too fast to be birds. Judging from the altitude, I would guess their size to be between 2-3 meters in diameter.
