Location: Concord, NC
|Small, rotating, seemingly faceted orb spotted flying more slowly that bird/planes, flew roughly NE, concurrent with Poplar Tent Rd.
My husband spotted this object, which he described as a "tiny stop light," while we were driving northeast along East Poplar Tent Rd, just after the I-85 interchange. I assumed it might be a drone. I caught a few glimpses in my driver side mirror and pulled into James Dorton Park to get a better view while my husband and kid went to the park. I filmed for 6 minutes and observed the object slowly flying northeast but in a straight line concurrent with Poplar Tent Rd. The object was slower than both birds and airplanes, and seemed to rotate and reflect sunlight, as if faceted. It can barely be seen in my video and gets fainter as the capture continues. After turning off my phone camera, I lost sight of the object.
