Location: Mt. Airy, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:40 minutes
Extremely large star/cross like light over NW North Carolina.

Approximately 8pm, large star like object appeard in NW sky. This object was huge. It was star/cross like shape. I thought at first it was a star, but the sun had just started to go down and this was brighter than any star I've ever seen,and was the only thing in the sky, not even a cloud present. It gradually moved NW until disappearing over a 40 minute period, so it moves very slowly but does move. Almost like it is scanning the earth below it.

We have witnessed this several times over the last 4 weeks and I just want to know what it is. It has appeared around the same time each evening and takes about 40 minutes to disappear. On a couple other occasions there have been other smaller lights around this thing.

I have photos, and my camera is just run of the mill digital Canon. When I loaded the images to my computer and zoom in, the object seems to be changing shape in each photo (which was not detected by just observing it.) The images are all different, some circular, some cigar like shape.

I just want to know if anyone else is seeing this besides us and what it is.
