Cigar-Shaped object in small town of NC

I was looking around at the sky with a friend, taking in a breath of fresh air when I noticed a Cigar-shaped object hovering in the sky a distance from us.

I nudged my friend on the armed and he looked and was amazed. I have good vision and I tried to get an accurate view of the craft before it simply dissappeared. It looked to me like a US missle...but it wasn't since it was just hovering about...I'd guess a mile away from us.

I called the local station, WLOS, and they reported no military operations were in progress. We live near the airport...but it's only a regional one. I called the airport and asked if any planes arrived that wern't on the schedule but the lady at ATC told me no.

It was not an airplane or a military rocket so I think the object was, indeed, a UFO. The object seemed to be a greyish mattalic color, but then it kept changing from greyish to redish matallic...and some sort of haze seemed to surround it. It wasn't too hot, so I don't think it was a mirage.

I stared at it almost in awe...and suddenly I heard a strange sound. I can't really discribe it but it was like a WHOSHOP! word I could make for it.

My friend and I couldn't believe what we saw and so we decided to report this. After that day I do firmly believe in UFO's.
