While startled radar trackers watched their screens in open-mouthed amazement, the four took up positions around the capsule–two above it, one beneath, one aft. Whoever was inside those strange craft appeared to be inspecting the capsule and paced it for a full orbit of the earth. Then, apparently finished with their scrutiny, they pulled away and vanished into the unknown.
