|just passing this on .. UFO sighting in N.C. made AP wire on 1/26/07 (sighting was 1/24 I think)
I AM JUST PASSING THIS ON, FROM KLTV IN TEXAS, UFO SIGHTING IN NORTH CAROLINA. IT MADE THE AP WIRE: Some people in the Charlotte area called 911 dispatchers and reported seeing a weird hovering light in the sky.
Emergency dispatchers answered the calls in Iredell, Lincoln, Mooresville and Huntersville Wednesday night. One Lincoln County officer reportedly saw it, and the National Weather Service in Greer, South Carolina got similar calls.
Even stranger - people in between the two areas in York, Gaston and Cleveland counties had no such 911 reports.
The Federal Aviation Administration had no reports of plane crashes, and law enforcement officers said they didn't see any extra-terrestrials.
George Lund is the state director for the mutual UFO network - a group of amateurUFO investigators. He says the area around Lake Norman - and Mcguire Nuclear Plant - is a hot spot for UFO sightings. They think that they're coming in that area maybe to feed off some of energy that that plant is producing.
