Location: Asheboro, NC
Shape: Egg
Duration:4-7 seconds
Grey object, 5 miles north of Asheboro Airport, moving rapidly and changing directions at extreme angles.

One object observed 5-6 miles (estimated) north of Asheboro Airport. Appeared to be grey in color, and shaped between an egg, saucer, and cigar. I don't think it changed shape, but possibly viewed from different angles.

It was against a background of dark grey clouds. I first saw it moving from west to east, then it appeared to go straight up then back towards the west at a downward angle to approximately the same altitude as it was when I first saw it. The turns and change of directions were abrupt, and at very sharp angles.

I lost sight of it at this point as it either went into the clouds or faded away. The horizontal distance it moved is difficult to estimate, bit I would put it at least 3-4 miles west to east.
