We were fishing at the spillway at W Kerr Scott Dam in June I can't remember the date 1985. There was a large hill directly in front of us where we were fishing. I can't recall who saw the object first. It looked like a huge barrel tumbling through the air there was no sound or anything the sighting lasted a little over a minute as it pasted over our head to the hill on the other side of the road. I think it was several minutes before we could talk we were in such unbelief. The next morning I called our radio station to ask if anyone esle had saw anything. The Radio station said nothing had been reported. The next day which was Sunday morning I pick up a new paper I can't recall if it was the Winston Salem Journal or the Charlotte Observer and noticed someone else had saw something. However I didn't report it till now if. I really do not know what we saw . Thanks so much for your time.
