The witness was driving to work at 11:14 p.m. on March 5, 2018, when bright lights were first noticed.
“I first thought it was a house someone just moved into on a mountain,” the witness stated. “As I got closer, I then noticed there was separation between the lights and the mountain. I drove just a little further and noticed how slow it was moving. I stopped in the middle of the road and looked to see what time it was and it was 11:17 then. This is a very windy road. I turned my radio off and rolled the windows down and got my phone to take a picture. I didn't have any data on it so I couldn't take a picture. It was very low and didn't make a bit of noise. It was wide cause there were a light on each end and also about six-to-eight in the middle. I couldn't tell if it was long cause there were no lights. It wasn't foggy but this was really weird.”
The witness then noticed something unusual around the object.
“When it was almost above me there was fog in the immediate area mostly around the object. Not on the ground or close to me. I say fog because I couldn't smell any smoke. It wasn't thick and I could see the lights clearly. It floated in a straight line from when I first noticed it and where I stopped, it floated right over me. I say floated because it was moving so slow. I looked out of my passenger window and it went on its way. I couldn't believe it and wanted to call the sheriff’s office but thought they might think I was crazy. There is a very small airport that it was headed toward but would have had to ascend to get that high to land it. I never heard it accelerate. I called the airport the next day to see if anything landed there the night before and they said no. I was amazed that I saw it and that it was so low. I told some of my co-workers about it and asked if anyone else seen it. None did.”
North Carolina MUFON State Director David Glidewell closed this case as an Unknown-Other.
