Location: Stokes County, NC
Shape: Chevron
Duration:2-3 minutes
Observed object moving rapidly across the sky. Very bright lights, I could easily see a distinct > shape.

I live in a great place for star gazing far away from any city lights. I don't smoke in the house so I sit on the steps out front and look at the stars. Approx. 3 weeks ago I was watching a very bright star when it started to MOVE! I opened the door and excitedly asked my roommate to get my binoculars. We observed the object for approx. 5 minutes until it dipped down below the tree line. Last night the same thing happened and we were laughing about our UFO, wondering what was so interesting in that same area to bring it back. We both called it a UFO simply because we could not identify it. That observation was only for a little over a minute. BUT, tonight as we were both having the pre-sleep cigarette, I noticed movement to my right, not in the same location as before but close, it was huge and moving very quickly off to the side of the house. We both could see the shape very clearly, but retrieved the binoculars again for a better look. V shaped with 2 white lights on each end and one white light in the middle. The sound was an odd low hum. Surprising to me because on the other two occasions I had not been aware of any sound. (Possibly because it was not as close previously as it was tonight? I don't know.) There was a reddish glow coming from somewhere on the craft but I could not pinpoint it due to the intensity of the whites. We watched it pass by the side of the house and back beyond the trees. Duration? I'm not sure, possibly a minute, I was too overwhelmed to have any real feeling for how long I watched it. Definately time to buy a camera.
