Popular Communications had a good article on the military use of V shaped airships as part of their spy technology.<br />Seems a wind can bring these things into the lower atmosphere for everyone to see. There is now at least one 175 foot long airship in service with a 500 foot long one being built.<br />Are these airships what people are seeing? Good possibility.

The article states that Lockheed-Martin was awarded to 40 million dollar contract, in 2001, for the 500 foot airship.<br />But JP Aerospace did build the 'Ascender' which is said to be a prototype.<br />Supposedly these airships have been around since the early 90's and Area 51 in Nevada and Fort Bliss in New Mexico have hangars that are large enough to house them.
