Shape: Triangle
Duration:Off and on for 1 hour
3 independent bright lights form a triangular pattern...2 UFOs speed off and leave 1 that comes and goes...we have pics and video!

I was coming home from my girlfriend's house around 7pm this evening. I came up my road (there's a hill on my street) and I see this triangular formation of three (3) extremely bright, round lights up in the sky about 200 feet up and a mile or so away. I jumped out of my car, ran in to tell my mother and she ran out and we both stood in our back yard staring at the lights. They hovered in the sky without moving for about 2 minutes. After about 2 mins, the lower "UFO" in the triangle drifted up and to the right towards one of the other "UFO's"...once it got close, the upper right "UFO" flew off out of sight at an incredible speed. The "UFO" on the other side did the same after that. The one "UFO" was left hovering in the sky, the bright light kind of twinkling. The single UFO came and went off and on for the next hour, making random zig-zag floating actions in the sky. My father came home later the night and saw it too, he said "Oh my God!!! I thought you guys were joking.." - The weird thing is that it was sooooo windy that night, and the whole entire sky had a sort of pale amber tint to it. Our gate in the back yard kept slamming shut and my mom told me that earlier in the day she had heard a very loud noise around where the lights were coming from. The pets were acting weird. The objects were not moving at all times, so they were definetely not airplanes...but they were close enough that if they were helicopters we would have definetely heard them. Plus, any type of aircraft I've ever seen is not capable of dissapearing out of sight in the amount of time that these did. Very spooky, something strange is definetely going on over Charlotte, NC. This is no hoax, we have pictures and video.
