Location: Atlanta, GA
Shape: Disk
Duration:30 seconds
Large disc over downtown Atlanta.

From my window, on the 7th floor of my apartment building in downtown Atlanta, I noticed the dark silhouette of a thick disc shaped object over the Westin hotel, it appeared creased in the middle, and hovered. Judging from the distance from my window to the Westin I could approximate the height of the object as being 1000 ft or so from the ground. I shined a staples laser pointer at it, and it slowly flew south west over the city and banked out of view to the West.

Also judging from its height and flight trajectory over buildings I know the distance to, I think it was at least 30 ft in diameter and perhahps 8-10 ft tall. I also noticed some odd looking red flickering lights in one of the adjacent skyscrapers while the disc was present.
