Small balls that tail air planes

About 2 months ago, me and a guy named Harvey I work with, saw a commercial airplane, not a big 747 (I think they're called), like a size smaller than that, flying above.

We work, and live near 3 or 4 airports so seeing a plane is common, and I rarely if ever look up. But on this occasion I did. I saw what looked to be like a tiny shiny metalic ball, just above and behind the tail of the plane. It wasn't connected anyhow, and seemed to be following it.

I told Harvey to 'check that out', and we watched it for about 5 seconds until they went behind some trees. I asked him 'did we just see a UFO'? He alaughed and said 'dunno'.

Sooooo, I'm on break again today at work, and see another ball like object tailing another plane. I got my cell out to record it, but it doesn't show up. Cell cameras suck.

My question is, is there a specific name for these type of events?

From best I could tell, is that this object (on both occasions) was roughly the size of one of the planes wheels.

Perhaps no one seen this when it origionally was posted? Any insight?

in WW2 our pilots called them "foo fighters" and nowadays they are just orbs; of what is up for debate.

any chance of getting some video or still shots?

We are so used to the sight of airplanes flying over head that maybe we just look at the fuselage and wings and say "oh yeah, that's an airplane" and then divert our attention. I will watch the airplanes flying overhead for the spheres. I've seen other oddities so who is to say?

Look at the latest MoD (UK Ministry of Defence) report of UFOs. You can download and search yourself.

It gives instructions to airline pilots that when they see a UFO to keep it in AFT position.

Make what you want with that.

this mufon report is similar to what you talk about, right here in SE michigan where i am.

Long Description of Sighting Report I was sitting in my dining room with the window and shades open, and I was recording a song playing guitar onto my iMac computer using GarageBand when I looked out to see an airplane going in a south to north track. We live about ten miles from Detroit Metro Airport, so this is not unusual. What was unusual was I saw two metallic silver balls circling the aircraft at about one thousand feet from it. The airplane was roughly three thousand feet in the sky, and the two silver craft were looping around it in a smooth, effortless oval/circular pattern. I could not tell the size of the craft. All of the sudden, the two silver metallic crafts stopped moving and hovered completely still for about thirty seconds. I called my fiance Jessica from my cell phone that was on my desk because I needed to know if she had the digital camera on her. She did, and was shopping about three miles away from our house. I did not take my eyes off of the crafts. She said that she had it with her, and my Blackberry 8830 Worldphone does not have a camera built in. We hung up and she headed home home. I walked outside of my house into the backyard and they were still stationary. The sky was clear blue with no clouds in i, and the two silver craft started to move slowly toward the Detroit River, which is east from the first location I saw them. One of the crafts started to circle the other craft at a medium rate of speed, taking about twenty seconds to complete one revolution. After about a minute of this, the moving crafts speed increased until it took about five seconds to complete the rotation. It did three more rotations, and they merged into one object. A second object, a white cylinder appeared and was flying sideways toward it. It then increased in speed and then shot away in less than one second. I felt warmth and heard a high pitched hum in my body, like I was being scanned. I have felt this before on my second sighting about twenty years ago. It is not a comfortable feeling at all. The silver craft hovered motionless for about thirty more seconds, and started to move in a south easterly path. There were some birds that flew over, and justified that what i was looking at was not a bird. The craft started to pick up speed, and slowly headed south over the Wyandotte Shores Golf Course, and vanished. My fiance returned home about thirty seconds later, and we looked for them for a few minutes, to no avail. These craft looked like the craft that Jose Escamilla showed in his film "The Greatest Story Ever Denied", when he was demonstrating how today's cameras can see UFO's using a simple night shot on during the daytime. This was my fifth sighting in my life. The first in 1978 here in Wyandotte at the same location. The second was in 1989 in Coldwater Michigan over Coldwater Lake, Michigan where multiple people saw an orange cylinder hovering over the lake at 1:00am. The third was in 2003 in Australia when I was on the live aboard dive boat "Mike Ball's Spoilsport" where multiple people saw a green horseshoe shaped craft come out of the water at a very high rate of speed and shot up into space. The fourth sighting happened in October of 2007 again at my Coldwater Lake Cottage where my friend Bill, my fiance Jessica, and myself witnessed an orange teardrop shaped object split into as many as four parts, and then merged back together, and disappeared after twenty minutes into the distance.

I saw two of these metallic balls flying in formation and in sync with the plane I was in as I looked out the window. This happened about 5 - 6 years ago.

Don't what these silvery, metallic balls are but they looked like they were about the same size as a volkswagen beetle (but perfectly spherical).

Chalked it up as my second UFO sighting. The first was many years earlier and that was a classic triangle seen from the ground.

I don't think that the "following behind", behavior is restricted to the spherical shaped UFO's, the physical nature of the objects is varied. I was watching a small single engine aircraft approximately a mile away flying around two thousand feet in altitude, it's course towards me. I wasn't thinking about anything to do with UFOs, just watching the slowly approaching aircraft, I was noticing the numerous other aircraft in the distance, and the various birds of prey circling about in my vicinity. I noticed what I first thought to be a bird somewhat behind the small aircraft, it was doing horizontal figure eights as it followed the airplane, as the two got closer my eye caught onto the strange maneuvers the "bird", was performing as it tailed the plane. I thought, "That's strange, the way that bird is able to make aerobatic type turns as it follows the aircraft!" I could see no detail, it was too small, it looked dark grey, but it suddenly stopped following and it made a sudden turn at a ninety degree angle away from the small planes course. As it did so, it caught the sun and it reflected a very bright metallic glint. At that instant I realized it was no bird, the reflection was that of chrome, not feathers. It departed at a steady speed still too far away to see any shape, it could have been a distant aircraft, but as it followed, and before I knew that it may have been a UFO, it certainly looked to be close behind the small plane, it's large horizontal turns back and forth were much too extreme to have been caused by another aircraft in the distance. It seemed to be controlled by something that was enjoying itself, the unnecessary turns as it followed could be interpreted to be that of someone who is having a good time while flying. It's possible that sometimes these objects are having fun while exploring their surroundings. It was way too small to have been another airplane, but without scientific data to support my claims, I am content to simply report the incident and let the readers make their own decisions. These events may be common, if the aircraft had been flying a little bit higher, I may not have noticed it at all, and the area where it happened was all farm fields with no houses. Just another unconfirmed sighting of something odd.

While observing chem-trails one day, I saw a UFO flying directly next to one of the planes and then vanish before my eyes. The same thing happened twice in one week.

Ok well I have thought of posting this many times but never did for fear being labeled a crackpot or crack addict....but since I saw this thread I figure I might as well...

3pm one day last spring stepped outside with one of the java developers to discuss a project we were working on while he caught a smoke. I have been watching the skies since coming to this sight when searching for something unrelated to UFO's (OBE - astral projection ). After poking around the site I began to regularly read the UFO board. Anyway... this afternoon last spring I watched a commercial jet flying pretty high, i have no idea how high but lets say cruising altitude, it was way up there. and then I noticed something in its "wake", and I say wake because of the way it was effortlessly playing behind this plane reminded my of a wake boarder playing behind a speedboat. At first I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me so while he was talking I was doing double and triple takes on this object and sure enough it was there. If I had to guess at the size compared to the plane I would say a small car size. By the time I asked my friend if he could see it it was getting far enough away to where I could barely see it and he is older with not great eye site but he couldnt see it and by that time I couldn't either.

Well there you go, I am now officially a crackpot, woohoo

I dont remember at this point if I could make out if it seemed metallic or anything, the thing that stands out most in my mind is how it seemed like it was just playing behind this plane and had enough power to take off a some ungodly speed if it chose to.

Okay okay I won't leave you hanging...

They can change shape because they are a plasma energy life form looking much like an amoeba

They flit about aimlessly because they are like a swarm of amoeba in a pond

They can make instant high speed maneuvers because they no more feel inertia than does a lightning bolt

They appear fuzzy by day... glowing by night because they are energy creatures not solid 'ships'

They become almost invisible in natural light which is WHY you can see them with Infrared cameras, night vision goggles and why NASA uses the infrared hand held cameras to film them

They 'feed' on plasma energy... hence you will see them above and in front of a thunderstorm, near power lines and stations and 'other' power sources

They appear to have intelligence enough to be aware of us but its unknown yet if they can communicate.

They are definitely curious and playful, but harmless... I doubt that we can kill them but who knows what all that ELF etc does...

My personal estimate based on reported UFO sightings is
80%ish are Critters
15%ish are ours including ALL the triangles
5%ish are the 'visitors'

I think if UFO researchers would start to look at this they would find amazing results and we might actually get somewhere...

Main stream science on the other hand HAS started to not only accept this, but study it

If you do a google search for PLASMA LIFE FORMS you get this...

Results 1 - 10 of about 463,000 for plasma life forms

Zorgon these things communicate intelligently, they have (reds anyway) laser beam facility, they are connected to motherships too. This from experience.

Zorgon do you think that these "critters" could be the "Jinn" mentioned so much in the Quran?

I've personally sighted these illuminated orbs at a pitch black beach area here in Jeddah, the plasma life form explanation doesn't really come as a surprise to me as it seems logical. But they are no doubt intelligent IMHO.

Wow, where the hell was this thread hiding for so long?

I don't doubt they may be... I just don't have proof of that yet
nor have I run into one

Since this topic has evolved from foo fighters to plasma life forms. I thought it interesting to bring up Carlos Diaz's footage.

Also I found these parts to be interesting from one of the links you provided zorgon:

Plasma Life Forms in the Laboratory
The evolved sphere appears as a stable, self-confined, layered, luminous and nearly spherical body - much like the "orbs" described in the paranormal literature.

Lozneanu and Sanduloviciu describe a rhythmic "inhalation" of the nucleus which mimics the breathing process of living systems and results in pulsations.

Link to External Source

Plasma Orbs in Paranormal Literature In 2004 (as reported in the Physical News Update by Phil Schewe and Ben Stein) an experiment was conducted where particles in a plasma crystal arranged themselves into neat concentric shells (or rings - from a two-dimensional perspective), to a total ball diameter of several millimeters. These orderly Coulomb balls, consisting of aligned, concentric shells of dust particles, survived for long periods. This structure was described as an "onion-like architecture". (Dark matter halos around galaxies also have similar structures.) Paranormal analyst, Allan Danelek (in his book The Case for Ghosts) says, "One could think of orbs as 'tiny ghosts' moving around a room, their essence being contained within a tiny sphere of pure energy, like air inside a bubble." This description matches the description of life-like pulsating plasma spheres generated in the laboratory by Lozneanu and Sanduloviciu. Furthermore the pulsating plasma spheres would also give readings of a fluctuating electromagnetic field. Leading ghost hunter, Joshua Warren, says "Nine times out of ten, if a mysterious field is constant and stable, it's artificial; if it fluctuates erratically, it's paranormal."

Link to External Source

Could this footage be genuine on Diaz's behalf? .. don't get me wrong, I personally find many inconsistencies in the story he tells, but his evidence may be real as Col. Corso said. His evidence also seems consistent with the descriptions of these plasma spheres, they even have rings(shells) around them as well as apparent nucleus if I'm not mistaken.

I was really hoping that there would be a lot of others who had seen something similar to my siting.

In regards to Foo Fighters
Pilots on all sides during WWII spotted them and they all thought it was the other sides

"Secret " weapons or advanced aircraft they seemed to be harmless.

Some have speculated that because they were seen a great deal during WWII that they were in fact Probes from other wordly intelligence watching us kill each other. They seemed to be fascinated with Bomber formations and would clock them for hours all the way into their target areas and then vanish.

The Japanese saw them and assumed that they were American, the Germans thought they were British or Americans and of course the Britts and Americans thought they were German or Japanese if it was the Pacific field of operation.

After the war it was found out that everybody saw them and they all thought it was the other sides advanced weapons

Many people have seen them, around planes or crop circles.

Looks like they are little critters, yes, or some form of energy, space animals. I really don't know why people believe space would be lifeless.
