Location: Charlotte, NC
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 minute
I witnessed a black unmarked helicopter first. then as if coming straight up behind a tree line was a large triangular shaped craft.

The large isosceles triangle had an equally shaped triangular opening in it's interior. I could see the sky through it's interior opening. It was metallic or chromed finished. It seemed to reflect the setting sun on it's surface. The craft asended in a straight upward flight exposing its complte triangular shape. The metalic frame of the craft had what appeared to be 10-12 equally spaced thrusters on one side of the craft. After a brief ascent it seemed to turn in a 90 degree angle which I figured was upside down now that the thusters were on the top side. As it rolled into that 90 degree turn the craft took on a thin flat shape. With the thin edge I could barely see, I could not see its shape any longer as the craft turned stealth like or (blended in with the blue sky). The thin edge I could still see excellerated so fast to the east that the edge was thinning into nothing. The black helicopter was gone as well but I had completly forgotten about it. I immediately whipped into a conveinent store to see if anyone on the inside just witnessed what I had just seen but no one seemed to be excited from any sighting so I kept it to myself. My family still laughs at me today until today (Sunday Nov. 15th) when the Charlotte Observer,page 2A, a gentleman writes that his wife swears she has recently seen the same type of craft. The paper printed your web site. Until now I didn't know where to write to tell anyone.
