Occurred : 12/13/1996 03:00 (Entered as : 12/13/96 0300)
Reported: 8/7/2003 2:48:28 PM 14:48
Posted: 8/28/2003
Location: Greensboro, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:1-minute
Very large ball of light. Looked to me as if the sun were moving through town.

I was a security supervisor at a large convention center hotel, while sitting a my patrole van, at approximately 0300 hours I observed a very large, silent ball of light that flew over a large department store and illuminated the whole store and parking lot. The object was flying in a east to west direction towards Piedmont Triad International Airport, and never made a sound. The only thing I can compare it too, is the sun. the object was soo large and bright it looked as though the sun was flying through the sky. The object appeared to fly slowly, although it did not hover. I observed this object for approximately one minute before it blinked out, as if someone cut off a light switch. I am estimating the time of night, and exact date of this incident. The sighting itself is very vivid, however events surrounding it such as time of date, etc are unclear. I have never told this story to anyone beside my wife, who thought I was seeing things, therefore I never bothered to remeber or document important dates and times regarding this incident.
