|High speed bright white object.
At 21:30 hours on the 08/15/2015 driving from Mars Hill, NC, to Weverville, NC, on I-26, me and my wife seen a bright white object. my wife said look a meteor! I looked and said no too low and slower. it was a aircraft maybe a F-16? But the speed was much more than a F-16.
When from Weverville to mountains south of Asheville NC in 1 min .20+ miles. Then at the mountains slowed why down and turned red. could see two maybe three red steady lights and the white light was gone/out. Wife said look, his brake lights are on now. when the object over flew us there was NO other lights on. could only see the bright white light.Was not yellow like afterburner. was NO sound.whatched for maybe two mins looked like went over the mountains. I have been to many air shows and seen aircraft at near 700 mph. this was faster. the object was moving south. I have lived in Mars Hill, NC, for 15 years and seen fighters,C-130's, choppers, even a blimp! Was too fast to see a shape. but the red lights never seen that type of steady red lights on a US aircraft.
