Location: Asheville, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:40 min
Red light moved slowly over Asheville, dogs acted is if they were in pain.

My daughter and I were going to the KFC to pick up food. We were traveling down Leicester Hwy and saw a red ball of light. It was in the western sky. We pulled over to the Ingles parking lot and called my wife on the cell phone to look outside from our house and see if she could see it. By this time approx. 18 cars pulled in around me to look at the object. None of us could figure it out. The light would move up and down left and right slowly. My wife grabed our dogs and got in the car headed for us. She said the dogs started wailing like they were hurting.

When she got to us the dogs would not come out of the car and huddled in the floor board. When we tryed to pick them up they were stiff, as if they were scared.

More people including 2 Asheville Police cars pulled into the Ingles parking lot to view the object. It evently drifted South West, came off and on slowly, then just dissapeared. We watched the local WLOS news and a proffesor from UNCA said it could be a planet. But planets don't move.
