Duration:12 minutes
2 White Oval Balls moving across Charlotte NC sky

While @ Work... I went outside @ 1227 for a Smoke-Break. As I was standing there facing NorthWest I noticed an small odd cloud sitting @ about a 50 degree angle from where I was and @ my 1100. I looked down, then back up and the cloud was gone. In it's place was a small white oval looking ball. The sky was clear Carolina Blue so it was obvious. I immediately pulled out my Nextel and got a Co-Worker outside to see it too. We watched it sit still in the sky kind of morphing shape for roughly 3-4 minutes and then it started easing slowly East. Right then, my Boss drove up and started watching it also. Just before the Sighting ended, I noticed another Ball just East of the 1st one. After maybe 20 Seconds, they both just Vanished. You could see them kind of Fade Out of sight. Not due to distance, they just Faded out. I watched them Fade in/out a few times before finally disappearing.

I am the Gen. Mgr for a Logistics Co. in Charlotte and have had Military Experience. I am an avid plane spotter and ALWAYS watching the skies.

Lastly, as an observational note. The objects were hard to see without my Polarized Sunglasses. I kept pulling them off and passing them around so everyone could get a clear view. Had I not had my Glasses, I probably would have never noticed either object.
