Location: Burnsville, NC
Shape: Disk
Duration:<1 minute
While traveling east on Highway 19, I was observing a lightning storm slightly north of the highway. Approximately 2 miles west of Burnsville, NC, I observed a disk shaped craft, illuminated by the flashes of lighting. I only saw the craft once, I searched the sky several more times, but was unable to spot the craft again. At arm's length the craft was at least the size of a quarter, probably 800-1000 ft high and was extremely shiny. I cannot say about sound as I was driving at the time.
