Posted: 4/18/2012
Location: Raleigh, NC
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: The object emitted other objects
A bright white light that was extremely fast with no sound, ejected 2 smaller objects in opposite directions.

At approx 8:45 on the night of 4/9/2012 I was letting my dogs outside for their last bathroom trip for the night when I looked up in the sky and saw a bright light in the south eastern part of the sky. The light was extremely bright and moved at a high rate of speed. What got my attention was that there was no sound and there were absolutely no flashing lights of any kind. I called for my fiance to come and see, she also noted that there were no flashing lights and that it just did not move like a plane because of the high rate of steady speed. As it moved from the south east it increased its brightness by 50% then made a very sharp turn towards due east at about a 60' to 70' degree angle then as its brightness decreased we could see 2 smaller objects, 1 ejected from each side of the object, 1 going north and 1 going south at the exact same speed. The objects that came out of the side of the light/object moved so fast they were gone as soon as they came ou! t. The object then gave off one last bright burst then I lost sight of it over my neighbors roof. Never seeing anything of this nature before, I posted a question to Facebook to see if anyone else in my area saw anything strange in the night sky. I got a reply to this site from a friend saying that this site(NATIONAL UFO REPORTING CENTER)might be able to answer some questions for me, so I thought I would share my experience for those who are interested in strange aerial phenomenon. Im not saying that what I saw is of extra terrestrial origin but it was something I've never seen before in my lifetime.
