Light formation near uptown Charlotte.

My significant other and I saw a light formation flying from the area of uptown Charlotte, moving south, at about 9:15 p.m. Friday, August 21st. We live just a few blocks outside of uptown.

The lights were spotted as they moved over an apartment building on the uptown side of the condo, and they flew directly over the condo. There were a couple helicopters in the area at the time (due to a ruckus at a baseball game uptown that was occurring). An airplane also flew by/below the light formation.

It took about two minutes from the time we spotted it over the next door building to the time it had disappeared over our building and was out of sight.

My SO grabbed binoculars and reported that the lights looked like discs with lights, but he also could not get the binoculars focused (I grabbed the iPhone).
