My first thread was titled "Rectangle UFO Witnesses".
I saw this rectangle ufo last September 15, 2004, in Charlotte, NC in 5pm rush hour traffic. It was as long as a football field and was a perfect
rectangle shape with hard edges. I saw no depth as it was in front of me and I only saw it for about 15 seconds. It was dark greenish gray colored.
It had slightly reflective panels that were encased like panels in a modern day skyscraper. There were at least 2 rows of panels.
When I first saw it, I thought it must be a banner being towed by an airplane and in fact, my eyes searched for the plane. I quickly realized there
was no plane pulling anything. This giant was simply floating above the tree line about 1/4 mile away. I watched it for about 15 seconds as traffic
slowly creeped along. I had the time and the presense of mind to remove my sunglasses and could see the detail of the casing holding these panels. I
didn't hear noise from the ufo but I'm sure I had the car radio on. The road dipped down and I lost sight of it as it floated eastward.
I reported it immediately to NUFORC. Nobody else reported seeing this object. I'm sure others had to see it. I had hoped so much that someone else
would report seeing it as well, but to date, no such luck.
One thing that stands out with other witness accounts of similar rectangle sightings is that the witnesses often say they first assume these
rectangles are banners being towed by an airplane and they immediately look to find the airplane only to discover there is no airplane. In my amateur
attempt to investigate this ufo, that little characteristic is quite interesting as it was my first reaction. It also reveals my reluctance to
believe the unbelievable.
I still hope that someone else will come forward that saw what I saw and maybe we can discuss.
And another thing, rectangles seem to be the least likely aerodynamic shape imaginable but yet I saw one and many others have reported the same!
