Duration:5-10 minutes
Sun light relecting off a metallic type surface.

Myself, my wife and daughter were traveling Westbound on Hwy 28East in Pineville to go the pharmacy. The sun was setting and the sky was bright and clear with very few clouds if any. As we approached the top of a hill i saw off to the west a bright object in the sky,it seemed to be almost metallic. It reminded me of the light reflecting off an aircraft as it turns, the object did not appear to be moving . My wife and daughter asked what it could be,at first i thought it was an airliner, but when it didnt move i began to wonder. We were traveling in that direction, at times it seemed to disappear but would return to the same spot.As we waited to turn into the parking lot i noticed a second object that appeared to make a turn toward the 1st but i was unable to see what it did after as i had to turn.After we pulled into the pharmacy parking lot i backed up into a spot so i could watch the object further, but after parking it was no longer visiable. It could have been 2 airliners or even a weather ballon but i really don't know, i do know it was metallic in look with the sun reflecting off it.
