Location: Asheboro, NC
|Orange light crossed in front of me while driving and hovered above the trees, moving in a westward direction on an overcast night.
Coming back from McDonald’s on North Fayetteville St., I took Old Liberty Rd. home; on this road, at about 10:05 p.m., I see a small orange-ish light skip across the tops of the trees, going to the left. I turn to look, and see a small, glowing (not shining) red-orange light flying smoothly across the neighborhood just over the tops of the trees. I decided to turn left onto Balfour Ave., and was able to take a few pictures (though not the best, I was driving, at night, and there was a windshield in the way). It slowly climbed higher, and as I neared the intersection of Fayetteville and Balfour, I was able to stop and take a decent look at it; now high above the trees, it started off toward the direction of North Asheboro Middle School. I turned right instead, and went home. The night sky was overcast, save for one small section where the moon and a couple of stars shone through, but other than that, no other night sky lights were visible. This light, w! hile closer to the ground, appeared to move/spin as it flew forward, and seemed to flicker at the sides like a fire ember, only much, much larger.
