Location: Atlanta, GA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Witnessed bright stationary object on the edge of a cloud suddenly dim and finally move upon chopper and two jets presense.

My father and I spotted a stationary object about 20 - 30 degrees off the horizon just above and to the right of Dobbins Air Force Base. This round object was very bright and appeared to be sitting on the edge or lip of a cloud. After a few minutes of video taping this sighting, a helicopter comes into view and upon doing so, the object dimmed it's lights but was still visible. A couple seconds after the helicopter presense, my battery on the camcorder went dead! My father ran in to get another camera as I stayed and watched the object. I then saw what appeared to be two very fast aircrafts come flying out of the A.F.B. up into the sky. A minute or so afterward, the bright object begings to move toward my right (north) about 20 degrees and then toward me (eastwardly). The object then moved right again and out of my view (behind a building).

This was the last I saw of this u.f.o. The two aircrafts I saw scramble a few moments earlier then flew back into the Dobbins A.F.B. airspace and looked to be coming in for a landing. Around 10 or 15 minutes after this event, there were a lot of airtraffic in the Dobbin's vicinity which is highly unusual. I videotaped afterward, another helicopter flying around and two big aircrafts (looked to be military ) fly out of Dobbins. I recorded these events on a VHS camcorder and I will convert to digital format and send in.
