Around midnight, two witnesses observed a bright light in the sky that, upon observation, appeared to be a large and wingless aircraft.

Driving down Houston Mill Rd (near Emory University/Emory Village) around midnight, perhaps a little before, my friend nd I saw an intensely bright light in the sky directly ahead of us. We assumed it must be a low-flying plane, but it was extremely bright and as we speculated on what it could be (I suggested a helicopter searchlight--it was that bright) we drove under it.

Again, at first we thought it was a plane, but then we realized it had no wings and was simply a dark, oblong shape in the sky (could not tell if it was moving or not) with five green and red lights around the edges and a bright light in the front, or what I assumed to be the front.

We kept driving and soon could not see it.
