Town of Fuquay had power blackout(2Hr.duration)@ approx.10PM-06/22/98. Father injured himself in dark. Drove him to hospital in Cary. Driving home south on Hwy 55, saw BRIGHT white light-southern horizon. Shaped liked & as luminous as: 1 piece of full moon divided into quarter pieces. Father commented:"Didn't know they'd built a new radio tower there". I replied: "NOT a tower light". "No tower". Object/light 45 degrees above horizon. Driving south, it was hovering towards north. Our positions met. Looking at it up thru windshield, looked pie-piece/triangular shaped. White bright still in front w/blinking lights on opposite corners. When directly overhead, saw vivid red and blue lights underneath. Effect was, either it was small object descended & immediately overhead- OR GIGANTIC OBJECT that never descended as we met going in opposite directions. Hard to tell. Car behind tailgating me- I couldn't stop. Went 3 hundred yards turned off and turned around to look and ::POOF!:: It, whatever it was, was gone. Had a good 360 degree view of horizon. This location was 4 miles from Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant. It behaved like nothing I've seen in my 46 yrs. or my father's 76 yrs. Strange, indeed. Any other reports about this one??
