UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Columbus, Mississippi County of Lowndes
  (5 or 7 highly reflective, like mercury, disc shaped objects flying in a V formation.)

Date: 5/20/69 10:30am cst local time
  (This is an estimate I was 12 yrs. old at the time, I am 48 now.)

Approach Direction: Southwest (I did not see them approach I just glanced up and seen them 12:00 position.)

Departure Direction: Northeast

Witness Direction: North

Description: I have seen these objects twice. The first time when I was 12 years old living in Columbus, Missisippi, the second time 8 years later, 1977, living in Golconda, Illnois. Both times the weather was clear. I did not see them approach I just glanced up and seen them, 5 or 7 disc shaped individual objects flying SW to NE for Columbus, Ms. and SE to NW for Golconda,Ill.,at a high altitude, in a V formation and no contrail. They were the apparent size of a pencil eraser held at twice arms lenth, faster than a passenger aircraft 1000-1500mph and they were highly reflective, like mercury. I did not think they were geese because they were to high and the formation stayed symetrical. When I spotted these objects they were at a 12:00 position. I watched them until they were no longer visiable, about 1 minute. If anyone has seen anything like this? I would like to know.

Color/Shape: 5 or 7 disc shaped, objects, silver, highly reflective like mercury, no contrail, flying in a V formation

Height & Speed: Higher than a passenger aircraft 50 to 60 thounsand feet, constant speed 1000-1500mph.
