|Total of 5 red/green/white flashing objects seen over a 3+ hour period. All were stationary!
On May 9, 2007, I witnessed 5 objects flashing/strobing/oscillating a red light, with steady green and white lights while the object was being quite stationary. I could not make out the shapes of the objects due to distance (or maybe because they may not have been very large), but through binoculars I could defintely see the activity of the described lights.
At first, there was only one object (as described above.) That was at 21:45. By 0100 a.m. on May 10, there had appeared four more objects, each quite stationary and flashing/strobing red, with steady green and white lights while the objects were collectively quite stationary. All five objects were in a triangulated pattern covering about a 5-mile area in the sky.
These objects were defintely NOT aircraft of any known type. Even though there was air traffic coming and going from Charoltte-Douglas Airport (some 30 miles away; I live under an existing flight pattern), it was impossible to mistake these five objects as being normal aircraft.
The main aspect of these objects was that they did not move! At whatever altitude they were at, they did not move!! But, again, there was no mistaking these objects for normal aircraft.
The sky was clear, with minimal interference from earlier rain clouds that had passed through. Normal air traffic was discernable from these objects. Stars were clearly visible. Temperature was about 60 degrees.
(As an aside - while I was looking at the first red/green/white object, at around 22:15 through binoculars, I distinctly saw and visually tracked [for about 5 seconds] a greyish rectangular object passing through the heavens. I say "the heavens" because that object was definitely outside our atmosphere and passing at maybe 200 miles up. I have seen the space shuttle three times [and even once when it was connected to the space station] as it passed over my area and I knew that the altitude of the shuttle was 200+ miles above me. When watching this sixth object [just by chance] I had the disctinct feeling that it was at least as high as the shuttle would have been. And that means that this sixth object, to have been visible to me even through binoculars, had to have been a VERY large object. Rate of speed of this sixth object was half again faster than that of what the shuttle's speed normally is when in orbit (meaning, this sixth object was moving at 17,500++ mph.) There was NO mistaking this sixth object for space junk, a satellite, the space station or anything other than a VERY large rectangular machine moving from West-to-East at a high speed.
All in all, it was quite a night. Thanks!
