Date of Sighting: October 23, 2009
Time of Sighting: 8:30 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Maysville, North Carolina

Description: We saw something lighted flying in a perfect circle inside the clouds. The circle it was making seemed to be 700 yards wide. The timing was perfect and I even clocked it each time it was in the 6 o'clock position. It was making one revolution per second. It seemed like it was about 1,000 yards away . As I got in my car and drove toward it the circular pattern went to an oval and it moved away. I stopped as that happened and it went back to flying a perfect circle only the span of the circle was much smaller . When I went back toward home the circle went back to its original size and location. Its not easy to explain, but just imagine a light bulb moving on its own in a large circle 20 times faster than any jet we see. It started at 8:30 PM. At 10:00 PM it was still going same circle same speed then what seemed to look just like a shooting Star came out of the bottom and went right to the ground. It was at cloud level and hit the ground level in less than a second. I brought others to see it. Several witnessed it. At midnight it was still going. I went to bed. At 2:30 AM I woke back up. I decided to check it was still there. When I woke up in the morning it was day light and gone. The only thing is we had no power in our area. Three Jones Onslow electric trucks were out on our road trying to fix the problem. I never questioned them. There was also a time warner cable truck. I could not make out a shape or see anything other than a moving light inside the clouds. it seem to stay in the clouds at all times. The light did not leave a trail or anything.

Note: The witness has described in detail a strange sighting. Sometimes bright lights used in commercial promotions can result in a light reflection off of nearby clouds. There is no evidence that this resulted in the above sighting, but we have received nocturnal light sightings in the past that were due to this cause. It is not known if the power outage was associated with the sighting. The witness provided the name of the power company and location of the outage. If time permits, I will call the Power Company and see if they have an explanation for the outage. Any updates will be posted.
