Time: Daylight sighting.
I was flying an airliner into Tel Aviv in 1997 when around 18,000 feet on a clear sunny day I saw a chrome ball hovering. I put on the weather radar to look for returns thinking it was a weather balloon, but no returns showed up.
As I turned through 50 degrees still descending I noticed the shape was cylindrical and chrome in colour, the ball I saw was in fact the cylinder end up.
Within a minute 6 aircraft showed up on my TCAS instrument which in fact were military fighter aircraft. These planes took it in turns to fly erratically around the blimp.
Initially I concurred that this must be some kind of military practice target, but on making enquiries amongst my military colleagues this is not a known maneuver.
I remain in two minds. Regards.
