Description: About an hour ago my daughter and I were on our way home from the store when out of the sky a silver object came down. We were traveling west on Highway 151. We saw this for about 5 seconds. It quickly turned up and disappeared with lightning speed. It was far away. Visionwise it was about an inch or two long. We live in N.C. and were driving thru Candler. It appeared to be over the Smokey Mountains. As far as motion, it came out of nowhere, was heading straight down, then went up and was gone. It looked from what we could tell to be "cigar shaped." A friend of my sister had a similar sighting about a week ago.

Comments: The witness has described an object that displayed erratic movement not characteristic of conventional aircraft.
