Location: Salisbury, NC
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: The object emitted beams
|Shining like a sparkler and brighter than the sun in broad daylight.
Me and my cousin were coming back from eating at a restaurant in Salisbury N.C. We were headed south on main and 29 by airport road in Salisbury.
The sun was coming from the right side of us in his car. There was a even bigger light shining from our left and I thought it was odd.
Me and him looked to our left and saw what looked like a sparkler being burnt. The object was as big as a house. It than took off and was gone in less than a second.
It made no sound like a jet engine would make and did not make a sound. I remember that it took off and was light years away in less than a second.
When me and my cousin looked at it, it was like they read our minds and knew to get out of there fast.
The whole encounter took less than ten seconds. It was so bright that looking at it and getting a detailed description of the craft is not possible. It looked like a sparkler.
