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))


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.
