Location: Charlotte, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Craft moves at least 43,200 miles per hour

I was headed North bound on I85 coming from gastonia to charlotte . As I approached the Sam Wilson exit I noticed to my left a bright light just hanging in the sky as I watched for a few minutes the light did nothing and just stood still . Then all of a sudden it moved a distance of about 6 to 8 miles from beside of me to ahead of me in less than a half of a second and came to another dead stop as I watched for just another minute or so the light took off again and just litteraly vanished in thin air headed in a North East direction. I calculated the speed of this craft to be a minimum of 43,200 miles per hour. I know that this craft after what I had seen was not man made.

((NUFORC Note: We have sent a message to the witness, inquiring how he was able to calculate the alleged velocity of the object so accurately. PD))
