Location: Blowing Rock, NC
Shape: Flash
Duration:2 minuts
A dim light seen at night brightened into an extremely bright light, dimed down and disapeared.

My family and 3 others were at the brown mountain lights in noth carolina. Having not seen any dramatic displays from the lights we began to star gaze. We started looking for satalites in the night sky.

My uncle, who will remain unnamed, saw one at the far left of the sky moving right. At one point it began to flash an extremely bright light which lasted for about 20 seconds before it dimed down to its original size and then disapeared. The entire event lasted for aproxamatly two minutes. We stayed at the area a little longer and finally left to tell those who had not come.
