In 1988 while co-pilot on a TWA airliner air traffic control asked us to make a 40 mile course change to the north which we did. A few minutes later the captain and I saw what looked like a large bluish and lavender hologram appear over area 51 just south of our flight path. It appeared to be approximately 5 miles high and 1/4 to 1/2 mile wide. Small objects which resembled whitish/yellow fire flies came from behind and above our aircraft making a fast 90 degree turn descending into the base of the large hologram. There were more than 10 small objects and maybe as many as 30 that descended into the hologram. They traveled so fast it was hard to determine how many there were. The entire incident only lasted about 20 to 25 seconds. I asked the Captain "did you see that?" His reply was "neither one of us saw that."

*I don't remember what month or day this incident occurred, but I believe it occurred in 1988 or 1989. This report required a month and day be filled in to enter the sighting information.
