Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Yellow/Redish colored UFO on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville,NC.

I observed an oval shaped object rise over a nearby mountain on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The object had many lights on it which did not flash. The UFO was approximatly 1/2-1 mile from me in the air as it ascended above the mountain top.

The UFO then slowly moved above my location and then streaked across the sky covering aproximately 30-50 miles in about 1-2 seconds. The UFO then stopped then began to fly north across the mountain range, eventually disappearing from my sight.
