Date Reported: January 12, 2007
Duration of Sighting: Two Minutes
Location of Sighting: Mt Airy, North Carolina - Northern North Carolina - See Map)
Latitude: 36.5 Degrees North
Longitude: 80.6 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Clear Skies According to Official Weather Observation. (Witness Said That Skies Were Cloudy Because She Couldn't See Stars.)

Description (In Witness's Own Words): I saw an object with bright colored floating around in a circle. I noticed that it was coming toward my direction from the other side of my house. It then moved across to the woods close to our house. It seemed to be flying low. It was very cloudy outside because I couldn't see any stars at all. The weird thing was that it made no sound at all.

Second Report by Witness: I first noticed the object coming from the north moving west away from my house. I didn't think much about it at first. I thought that it was a small plane flying kind of low or close. As I kept watching it I thought it was odd, by the way the lights looked, the way it seemed to be floating almost hovering, and the weirdest thing was when it made no noise. The thing seemed to make a half circle around the front of my house right to where I was standing. I saw it coming toward my direction and I started moving closer to my house, it was odd. I went out to walk my dog that stays in the house, and I was also talking to a friend of mine on the phone,and I was telling her what I saw. From the time I first saw (whatever it was) to the time I saw it move out of sight took about two minutes give or take a few seconds. It came in my direction around the house like I mentioned and moved across my driveway into a vacant stretch of land that no one lives on. The land has trees and brush growing everywhere. There is also a little stream on the land, but it had to have been flying low because when it went over the field it disappeared behind the pines and these trees are not very tall. There were no other witnesses that I know of. I told my girlfriend on the phone. I would have liked to go in the house to get my husband, but I knew the thing would be gone by the time he came out. I have seen and heard a lot of planes and jets and helicopters go over or around my house but this was not the same at all.

Investigator's Notes: The witness has described some unusual characteristics in this sighting. The main discrepancy is in the weather report. Either the witness has the time wrong or there was cloudiness in her area due to localized weather effects. The second report by the witness (including the drawing) shows that whatever she saw was unusual. Her second report is very explicit. Given all of the information provided by the witness this sighting falls into the "unidentified category."
