Location: Shelby, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:5 mins
A bright light that turned into 2 lights and shot off in two separate directions.

I know it's a little late to report this but I felt it needed to be done.

While visting my father (exact date estimated), upon leaving, I noticed a bright light in the sky above the field across the street. I called my dad outside on the front porch to verify what I was seeing in the sky.

After a couple of minutes the bright light separated into 2 lights suspended in the sky.

After a minute or so both lights shot off into different directions.

My dad and i looked at each other in confused amazement then I left, never to mention this until now.

This was witnessed shortly after midnight in Shelby,NC, in 1978.
