According to eyewitness testimony, “I used to be on my means residence from work heading down interstate I85 southbound in
Gastonia, as I handed exit 20 I seen a brilliant white orb that appeared
to be spinning and flipping round altering shapes. At first I believed
it was the moon with clouds blowing over it making it seem distorted.
However there was no gentle reflecting within the clouds round it, as what
occurs when the moon is partly coated in clouds. Once I noticed the form
modifications, I knew it was not the moon. I obtained excited at this level.
continued down I85 south till I obtained to Bessemer metropolis and exited in the direction of
my home. At the highest of the ramp I snapped my first image which was
of a blurry, glowing orb with completely no gentle round it.
this sense as if I ought to cease on the highway by my home to attempt to see
it. (Almost like I used to be being instructed to!).
So from the time I obtained off the
interstate till I obtained to my road I solely caught a few glimpses
of it. It gave the impression to be persevering with above i85 south. Once I obtained to the
subsequent road over from my home I ended and positive sufficient I noticed it once more
and was amazed. This factor was glowing like an orb one second, the subsequent
the sunshine appeared to take extra of the basic saucer form.
stopped I may faintly see a purple gentle flashing in sequence on it. This
is after I grabbed my telephone and took a few fast movies (my reminiscence
is sort of full so I did not need to take an extended video then danger loosing
it if I ran out of reminiscence) as soon as I obtained my digital camera on it and zoomed in I
seen not solely the purple dot flashing however a faint inexperienced one as properly.
This factor was means up there too, I needed to zoom all the best way in to get
these movies so I’d estimate it to be within the 10’s of hundreds of
ft up within the sky. Right as I ended recording on one of many movies it
accelerated and disappeared briefly, solely to reappear just a few seconds
later because the glowing orb once more.
This time I zoomed in and took a number of
footage, and in every one the form is considerably completely different. It is a
semicircle in a single, then and orb, then like a pie with just a few items
lacking. I stayed with it till I misplaced it over the tree tops because it
appeared to proceed above I85 southbound.”
