Description (In Witness's Own Words): All I could see was that it was a very very large object. It had two large lights on the front of it, that would remind you of a light on a commerical train. When the object passed in front of me, I was facing the side of it. That's when I noticed the color of the object. I know that it was a brownish-rust color, and it had a very, very low sound coming from it. But, I do know that it was very, very large. When it passed by me the trees blocked my view and I went inside my house, because I was shocked by what I had just witnessed. PS: I couldn't make out the shape, but, it appeared to be like a rectanglar shape as it approached in my direction.

Second Report by Witness: I forgot to tell you that the metal on the outside of the object was not smooth. It had a rough siding, that was brownish-rust in color.

Third Report by Witness (Received April 27, 2007): I would like to add to my report that happened on Jan. 17, 2007, in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. The lights that I saw on the craft that I had mentioned, didn't shine out like ordinary car lights. They were illuminated - just bright. As I stated before the metal on the outside of the craft appeared to look rough (like the bark on the side of a tree). By the slow movement of the craft, it appeared to be very very large. I couldn't see the entire craft because it was dark outside, but I did get the chance to see enough of it to see the color and design because my security light in my yard had shone on it through the trees. Also there was a very low sound coming from the craft. It was flying tree top level. I was traveling south on my road and it was traveling north. When I turned left into my driveway and got out of my car, I had to wait for it to come up in front of me. That's how I had the chance to see this craft. I will never forget this sighting as long as I live!

Investigator's Notes: I have no explanation for this report. The characteristics do not fit any conventional aircraft.
