we are located on the city's eastside our doorway facing southeast we have a full veiw of the skyline for this area. we have new casinos in detroit and they use large sky lamps to advertise with these lights move across the cloudlines and me and my girlfriend stepped outside to go to the car as we were talking we saw a very slow moving object of very large size moving away from the casino lights across the skyline it was triangular in form I first thought it was a formation of lights moving across the sky then we noticed airplanes ciculating about this object at very far to very close distances as to add speculation to what was happening. the city airport is less than 20 small city blocks from 7mi.road and gratiot.with very light traffic enough to go unnoticed these planes were comming from Selfrige air force base at best guess flying down from the north. this object was so large theplanes look lessthan any sizable threat. the object move slow and silent 3large round white lights on the side it took on an eerie glow about it and seem to tilt and we saw more lights to myself it seem to look like an X in the sky to my girlfriend it looked like a humongus kite I waited for the news cast for thelast night and themorning and the afternoon to say something of what was going on nothing was said.. so i made this report.
