|Light blue triangle over Southern Pines subdivision
I was out in front of my house with my telescope, just looking at stars. It was an average night for astronomy, nothing amazing, as the moon's light was blocking out most of the good views. All of a sudden, the computer that controls my telescope went dead. I pulled out my cell phone. It was dead also. Even my watch wasn't ticking. Then, i heard this odd whistling noise. I looked up, and there was a bright blue triangle traversing the sky at what i would guess to be about 600 mph(just a guess). I sat there watching it for about 10-20 secs before it sped up(no sonic boom) and disappeared from sight. What gets me about what I saw is that it is eerily similar to the reports of november 2006 of the statewide balls of light. Just like the other(which i saw, submitted a report, but it was deleted for some reason) it made a sound, it left a trail, and there was a haze around it.
