Disk-Shaped Objects w/ Red and White Lights Over Incoming Flight Path of Charlotte-Douglas International Airport

Charlotte, NC. August 21, 2007, approximately 8:45 p.m.

Noticed a blinking disk-shaped object in the northeastern sky above downtown Charlotte that appeared from nowhere, moved around a small area of the sky, blinking and disappearing, then appearing again, hovered for several minutes.

I went inside to get my boyfriend as a witness and a pair of binoculars, and when we got back outside, the craft had disappeared from its location.

After watching for several minutes, another disk-shaped object appeared in the north-northwestern sky above the incoming flight pattern to Charlotte-Douglas International Airport for a few seconds, and disappeared.

Another craft then appeared directly afterward, hovering still, slightly more westerly and lower in the sky. This craft hovered for approximately 5 minutes before disappearing below the tree line. We were both stunned that the object was in full view and seemed to be right in the landing path of incoming flights; several planes came in over the craft while it was present.

These three (or maybe it was just one on the move?) had red and white blinking lights.

Boyfriend looked directly up from our vantage point and pointed out what he described as a bar-of-soap shaped object with a satellite that looked like a glowing white orb. I did not witness this particular object.

I am located just south of center-city with a direct view of the Charlotte city skyline and often sit on my deck at night. I have witnessed these things for months (and often grab the binoculars and my boyfriend to witness - if nothing more than for confirmation that I’m not seeing things), most of the time over the airport or in the northeastern sky.

The objects have appeared nightly for months until about the second week of July, and were gone completely until this week when they reappeared. They are most often saucer or disk shaped with blinking lights or steadily but dimly glowing orbs.
