It was about 5 to 6 AM around the Last week of January when I had heard a crash sound out side about 5 to 10 minutes later I look outside west of where I heard the crash. Since I live near the airport I first thought what I was looking at was a very low flying plane over the top of a tree three doors up from my location. Then I realize the vehicle was not moving and the bottom of it was covered with LED lights with two strobe light north and south from my viewing angle. Each time a plane flew over head the vehicle would strobe then went totally dark, then the LED light would come back on until the strobe would repeat again. Sorry for not have any pictures I was just too surprised to see an object that close up that the last thing I thought about was grabbing my phone that was just a few feet away. Instead I was trying to get my wife to the window. Like I said I thought it was an low flying jetliner but wasnít moving just sitting over the top of a tree. Roughly about a little more than a 100 feet from my location exactly 3 house west on the North side of the street. I only saw part of the bottom and the back of the vehicle that made no sound but it was huge that much I could tell since it was winter and no leaves on the tree. When my wife came to the window and I stepped away is when it moved but as long as I was at the window for almost 10 minute it didnít move whatsoever. Having passenger jets fly over or near my home is common, to see something this low was not.

Am an Air Force Veteran of SAC of the Cold War and being stationed where KC 135 and B52 was there I was used to seeing military aircraft and since this was not my first time seeing something like this and this close just caught me off guard. In October 10, 1985 I picked up a Rental car at Charlotte Airport around 7PM and went North up I77 and before I Statesville NC a craft was hovering over my car when I noticed it it went Northeast after passing through Statesville it came back and hover over my car and again it moved Northeast after I notice it. This vehicle reminded me of the flying sub from Voyage to the bottom of the sea that was rust in color and blended into the night sky.

Also was a third case in 1977 but that's for another time.
