SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) Thursday night the Fox 2 newsroom and our Facebook page got several reports of strange lights in the skies over metro Detroit. "I've been watching the airplanes tonight and it wasn't quite as high as them," said David Levy. "You could actually see the triangle shape of the object."
Levy was outside Thursday night around 9:30 p.m. with friends in Flat Rock.
Lisa wrote, "I [saw] some in Southgate but thought it was fireworks and weird for [January]"
Nick wrote, "I assumed they were planes. They were flying in the same direction. I watched them for about 10 minutes and I counted four or five of them. I'm over in St. Clair Shores."
Mario wrote, "I [saw] it in Eastpointe off Nine Mile. It was something crazy."
Shaun wrote, "I was the one who called into the Fox 2 newsroom and first broke this story. They were black triangle-shaped objects making circles over West Bloomfield and Farmington Hills. There was no noise and they had bright lights. I'm not making this up and I know somebody else saw these things."
William Konkolesky of the Michigan Mutual UFO Network has also been taking calls from people who have seen lights at night all across metro Detroit.
"It's very possible that people are seeing military aircraft that they haven't notified us about yet like the spy planes or also the stealth aircraft that have been flying in our skies now for a few years. It's well known that they were testing these aircraft well before they notified people that they even existed. Now on top of all that, we have unmanned drones up in the sky and those things really look strange, especially for somebody that has no idea what they could even be," said Konkolesky.

Was somebody caught working? ;-)
ELO getting back together?
We had similiar lights over Greenville, SC. New Years eve.
I had to get my son to watch with me. When I posted on facebook, everyone of course thaought I was crazy.
4 to 5 lights across the sky in waves for about 20 minutes (no noise) but it was obvious they were some kind of aircraft. Drones things I can only assume. After 5 minutes of all heading in the same direction, they would just dissapear into the sky.
UFOs and Loud “Boom” in Indianapolis, Indiana January 7, 2013
I have doubts about the audio
I was a complete skeptic about the fabled 'black helicopters' until I saw one with my own eyes.
It was in broad daylight, not two hundred feet off the ground. It was completely silent and totally black. The blades turned so slowly that I couldn't understand how it stayed aloft.
My brother was with me, and saw it too.
Or maybe not...

Highly classified surveillance or attack aircraft do not fly over densely populated areas, especially at modest altitude and airspeed. Besides the risk of exposure of secret technology, there is a real risk of a mid-air collision. There has to be another explanation.
UFO in Phoenix / Chandler AZ 1/12/2013 Triangle of 3 lights traveling West to East
Well, that’s certainly interesting. The main rotor of most full-size helicopters rotates maybe 8 or 9 times a second. although one very large Russian prototype (never in production) was less than two times per second. The modified Black Hawk used in the Bin Laden operation may have had more and quieter blades than a BH normally would and was much more radar stealthy, but the basic blade mechanics were not thought to be anything special. I have no idea what you saw.
it could be some military stuff flying out of Selfridge ANG base.
And as we all know, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin’...
This one was rotating so slowly, it looked like a toy. Maybe half a rotation per second.
Growing up on Army bases, I saw helicopters all the time, and as an adult in SoCal, they were a constant presence. I know what they sound like, and I know what the blade rotation speed should look like. This thing broke all the rules.
I have no idea what you saw.
Well, I know what I saw, but I have no explanation for it. It just was. How? I have no clue.
