Erratic and fast moving green and yellow bright lights in West Cobb County, Marietta, GA, Early AM Jan 20 and Jan 21.

20Jan2018 and 21Jan2018 Marietta, GA. I am in West Cobb, several miles from Kennesaw Mountain, and yesterday morning, around 1:44 AM EST, I looked out my bathroom window and saw two erratically moving bright objects high in the sky. One object was to my right, emitting green light, lower in the sky than the other and moving more slowly.

The other was a bright pale yellow, much higher to the left and moving rapidly and erratically in a wide path.

I cannot tell the shape as I am mainly seeing bright light but the light appears to be circular or oval.

I am in a flight path for both McCollum Field and Dobbins Air Reserve Base so initially I thought it might be a helicopter or small plane, but the way the object was moving I do not believe would be possible for a known aircraft.

I did see the green object sparkling brightly but barely moving again to the right around 8:26 PM last evening (20Jan2018) and hoped it was just a star in the very cold and clear sky.

This morning, around 1:26 AM I again saw the yellowish object to the left. It was moving up, down and across in the same rapid and erratic pattern as the morning before. This time however, that object was suddenly joined by a bright green object. I did not see the green object arrive but it was not there when I first saw the yellow light. The objects seem to be circling each other but not in any organized fashion. They are darting back and forth. There appear to be small red lights around the edges of the green object. I don’t know if the green object is the same one I saw to the right the morning and evening before.

I checked McCollum Field’s flight schedule, and there are no scheduled flights or arrivals at this time. There was only one flight, an arrival at 12:05 AM from Scottsdale that might possibly be heading over my area. I don’t know how to contact Dobbins to ask whether they have any planes in the air. Do I need to report this to the police or to Dobbins? As for my background I am a 56 year old female, currently unemployed but have been a Pharmaceutical/Bio-Tech Project Manager for the past 15 years. I usually try to find a logical explanation for everything but I also strongly believe there can be no common explanation for some events.
