Posted: 10/31/2003
Location: Purlear, NC
Shape: Unknown
Duration:2+ hours
for 2 hours observed object moving slightly colored lights blinking randomly

We saw bright flashing lights of different colors. It seemed to be shaped like a boomerang or triangle but couldn't really see it clearly. The lights flashed in random paterns and the object stayed almost in the same place for the entire 2 hours we watched. It would move slightly from left to right or up and down and sometimes in circular patern. At on point what appeared to be a shooting star flew across the sky at a high rate of speed and stopped at or went directly into the object.

((NUFORC Note: We observe that the sighting is not inconsistent with the sighting of a "twinkling" star. However, that is just a guess. PD))
