On Thursday 10-08-15, my husband was driving home after being in a conference in Durham, nc, through a small town by the name of Mebane. He stopped at a exit where there was a gas station still open. He said he pulled in and saw several people staring across the street toward the sky. When he came out he realized that everyone was staring a dark object surround by blurry white light engulfed in a orangish-pink light. my husband, who is a skeptic about all things unexplained, decided it was some sort of jet/airplane, until the light began to appear to move very slowly in a back and forth motion. He claimed the he was still able to see the light until he reached Greensboro city limits. When he came home and told me about what he saw and I immediately wanted to go back and take a few pictures. I grabbed my phone and we went back the same route he went. It appeared to have been gone, so we turned around to head back home. We took a back route through G! reensboro and we came upon tow cars parked almost in the middle of a lane. There it was. Clear as you can imagine. My husbands description was fairly accurate except I wouldn't say it was moving back and forth. I would describe it as more of a hoover, a bob like motion. I took my camera out and although my phone didn't get the best shot, it is evident that whatever it was definitely moving, very slowly and it was not an aircraft that we are used to hear. There was also an older couple who own a bar a few feet from where we stopped who came out and said they had someone call the police and worker were being drilled by the operator. He was adamant that they knew something was going on and wanted to know who saw it. I hope someone steps forward and explains this, I've had no sleep and I can't stop searching the sky's for another one.
