Location: Patterson, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:7 minutes
Ball of light,similar to the Brown Mountain Patterson.

My cousins and myself were driving to band practice when we saw a ball of light come over a mountain top,one of my cousins jokingly remarked it was a UFO which could be possible as the ball changed direction rapidly(Going straight up,then diving at the ground) it stayed near the mountain top and did a few more manuevers(Darting left and right,and at one point it seemed to land on the tree tops) before it darted behind the mountain out of view. It moved far too quickly to be a plane,or helicopter. This object reminded me of the legendary Brown Mountain Lights,but we were not near Brown Mountain,or Linville Mountain(The obsercation point of the lights) we were below Blowing Rock.
