This morning (March 3, 2011) as my boyfriend was driving me to work, we saw an arrangement of what looked like large metallic balloons in the sky over Scottsdale, AZ. Since I was a passenger, I was able to focus completely on the objects without looking away. I immediately told my boyfriend to look and he caught some glances as he was driving, but wasn't able to pay as close attention as I could.

As we got closer, I saw that it looked as if it were actually 2 separate arrangements of 4 or 5 silver circles, each in their own straight line. I originally thought that maybe they were balloons because they weren't moving. But they were reflecting the sunlight, so they were obviously made of metal.
While I was hypothesizing with my boyfriend over what they might be, one of the arrangements of spheres immediately started moving and literally disappeared right before my eyes. Completely dispelling the idea that they were balloons. I even shouted in the car "One's gone! Where did it go?!" And as we moved further south on the road, the second aircraft of spheres moved in the same direction, but veered east away from us. I tried as much as I could to follow its path, but it moved much too fast and before I knew it, it too had vanished before my eyes. Totally non-existant when only minutes before I could make out every detail of it.
They looked like they were individual spheres, but somehow the groups of 5 spheres moved in unison in each aircraft. But they didn't appear to be connected. Needless to say, it was totally bizarre and I wish I would have taken a photo, but they entire experience lasted only a few moments and I didn't want to look away and miss anything.
I wish I knew exactly what it was, but I'll probably never know. That's the worst part of all. I am just so baffled.
