Location of Sighting: Boone, North Carolina
Date of Sighting: December 14, 2015
Time of Sighting: 7:45 PM to 10:45 PM EST
Description: The primary witness called while her sighting was in progress. She had been to the store and noticed several very large colored lights throughout the sky. She counted 7 lights. The lights moved up and down and side to side. Several members of the witness’s family and neighbors also saw the lights. She had never seen the lights before. The lights were red in the center and were spinning blue on the outside. The witness lives in an area devoid of street lights. The witness took several photos and a video. She stated that the photos did not reveal all of the detail of the lights. The lights were about 1/4 the size of a full moon. Skies were clear at the time of the sighting.
Note: The lights are likely not Chinese Lanterns because they are the wrong color. The distortion in the photos could be due to camera movement. However, the shutter speed was quick (1/15 of a second) considering that the photos were taken at night. The fast shutter speed will dampen much of the distortion due to camera movement.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
