Low, fast flying discs spotted on busy main street.

I was driving on Sept. 15, 2000 north on Sheldon Rd., north of Cherry Hill when I saw two disc shaped objects fly very low (just above the treetops), making no sound, and very fast. They were dark. I had just crossed Cherry Hill where there is an open view because of fields. The sky ahead was cloudless and blue with large, puffy, dark clouds to the west and lighter ones to the east, but these "objects" were against clear blue sky. They caught my eye because they were moving so fast from east to west (crossing Sheldon Rd. and seemingly traveling parallel to Ford Rd. which is a very heavily travelled road) and so low that I could see two of them, one flying in front of the other. I live approximately 10 miles from Detroit Metropolitan Airport and see planes flying all the time, and less than 6 miles from Willow Run Airport whose flight path is directly over my house and these objects were not planes. Planes never fly that low, east to west, around here. These objects were too high, too big and too fast to be birds. As I continued to travel north, and they to the west, it looked as if there were really three distinct objects with space between them with the first one hiding the one in the middle until I was farther north to see it. Then they went behind the trees and out of my sight. When I got to Ford Rd. I looked to the west but couldn't see a thing. Then I turned west and parked in a large strip mall lot to search the skies, but I could not see a thing. I looked at my van's clock and the time was 7:06 p.m. Eastern Standard time. The next day, I drove the same route to measure the distance from where I first saw the objects and the distance to Ford Rd. It was seven tenths of a mile.
