Duration:8-10 secons
A VERY LARGE SAUCER SHAPED OBJECT (ABOUT THE SIZE OF TWO FOOTBALL FIELDS) (SILVER IN COLOR) WITH FLASHING COLORED LIGHTS (GREEN, RED & BLUE) FLASHING ONE AT A TIME SIMULTANEOUSLY REVOLVING AROUND THE MIDDLE APPEARED (NORTH) FROM BEHIND SOME TREES IN THE WOODS NEXT TO MY HOUSE - THE OBJECT HOVERED OVER MY NEIGHBORS HOUSE A FEW SECONDS AND THEN AT A VERY HIGH RATE OF SPEED ZIPPED ACROSS THE SKY OUT OF SIGHT (SOUTHWEST DIRECTION TOWARD HICKORY, NC)

It was a late fall afternoon and I just walked around the corner of my house when I saw the saucer shaped object fly into the sky from behind some trees next to my house. I just stood there dumbfounded. It hovered over my neigbhors house (which is about 300 yards from my house) and then it just zoomed off in a southwest direction toward Hickory, NC. When I tell people about it - no one believes me - but I know that I did not imagine it - I know that I saw it. The lights flashed one right after the other - blue, green, red - then the saucer would turn opposite the direction the lights were flashing.
