bright light over raleigh nc

I saw a large bright light while driving down Gorman St toward Avent Ferry Rd. I assumed it was a helicoptor, but when I stopped my car there was no sound. The light was about the size of my pinky nail at arm's length. It also was dropping extremely slowly toward the ground. I didn't feel safe on the side of the road and so lost sight of it in the tree line. At 10:20 PM, it was still cloudy and this light was definitely below cloud level.

((NUFORC Note: We are certain as to whether the witness means that the incident occurred on the morning, or the evening, of 21MY02. We will attempt to confirm. PD))

((FOLLOW-UP COMMUNICATION))

Thank you for following up so quickly. Yes, I don't understand military time! I saw this light at 10:20 pm. Sorry about that.

Sincerely,
