Shape: Sphere | Duration: 7 minutes

six spheres emerge from cylindrical cigar shaped cloudI was sitting beside my pool looking out over the hillside. It was a fine day with no rain or thunder that day but about 20% scattered light white colored cloudes. While I was watching, a black cylindrical cloud formed, about 3/4 of a mile long and about 100 or 200 yards thick. This was the first cylindrical cloud I have ever seen, and the ends were almost square. It looked like a cigar shaped cloud. Have you ever seen a smoke ring blown from a cigarette? Well next a cloud shaped like a smoke ringformed, about 400 yards diameter. This smoke ring shaped cloud formed directly over one end of thecylidrical shaped cloud. This stationary smoke ring shaped cloud looke look like a single coil of rope, and was rapidly rotating like a smoke ring, with an active torroidal shaped flow. It was rotating at about one revolution every 45 seconds. The cloud ring was rotatintg so that the inside of the hollow, cirular shaped cloud ring was moving downwards and the outside of the cloud ring moving upwards, so I assumed while watching, that it must be very cold in the centre of that cloud ring. The cloud ring was directly above one end of the cylindrical shaped cloud, and then some flashes oflight appeared between these two clouds for one or two seconds and then a clear sphere shot out from where the flash was. The sphere curved upwards to the left and then disappeared or dissolved from sight. It retained its shape while it disappeaared, it did not shrink, but disapeared in a fraction of a second. The spehe was in view for about two seconds. I found it hard to believe what I was seeing. After 20 or 30 seconds another flash of light and another sphere shot out and curved up to the right and disappeared like the first one. Then several more flashes of light and several more spheres shot out in similar fashion at 20 or 30 second time intervals. Each sphere went in a different direction. All the spheres came out at about mach 5, so that they covered a mile in about one or two seconds. All came out straight and then curved away. This was all happening about three or four miles from me, about half a mile up. The third sphere left a black contrail, a mile or two long. This contrail was very black in color, just like the very black cylindrical shaped cloud, and not like the white clouds elsewhere in the sky. These were the only black clouds in the sky that day. The smoke ring was white in color. The contrail left by the third sphere started where the spheres appeared from and exactly followed the path of the sphere. This contrail formed in one or two seconds but remained for some minutes, showing the exact path of the sphere. None of the other spheres produced contrails. About six spheres came out in total. I did not report this untill after I read that other people had seen similar spheres. The color of the spheres seemed clear or silver, it is hard to describe the exact color. They appeared to be about 30 or 40 meters in diameter. After the last sphere came out the smoke ring shaped cloud stopped turning and the cylindrical shaped cloud and the smoke ring cloud both disappeaered within two minutes, so the total time from appearence of the clouds to disappearence was about 7 minutes. These were not saucers or elipses or triangles, but perfect spheres. When they disappered, the retained their shape and size, and did not disolve by getting smaller.
