Location: Morganton, NC
|A bright white pulsating, top shaped object with intermittent red, green, blue, purple lights with a small tail.
Last night a friend and I noticed a very bright, top shaped light appear south east of Morganton, N.C.. The object barely moved with no sound, and flashed red, blue, and white intermittent light.
After 10 minutes another object appeared 1 mile northeast of the other with the same features.
I went home and got my wife out of bed to observe them, while my friend called his cousin outside to witness the objects. We live 7 miles apart and stayed in touch by text messaging.
I viewed the first one with binoculars and it seemed to pulsate and had a tail similar to a comet, but had very intense streaks of red, green, blue, and purple light while the main body stayed very bright white.
The moon and was in 3/4 stage far to the west of the objects. We did witness man made aircraft passing under the first object. The aircraft was dwarfed by the object we saw. I could not see the second light from my house because of trees, but my friend, 7 miles north west could see both.
In 47 years, I have never saw anything like it. I witnessed the "Halle-Bopp" comet in 1997 but these objects seemed much closer to the earth.
A few days ago I learned the local news reported a UFO sighting over Lake James, which is approximately 10 miles northwest from our sightings.
The background was clear sky.
