Small circular object took out the tops of trees

In the summer of 1978 my friend and I were walking back into the woods beside my house to return my puppy to his pen. Near the intersection of Hwy 21 and Harris Road.

I was 12 at the time. We saw a circular object about 3-4 feet wide with a light shining out the front of it - like a headlight.

It was moving quickly just above the tops of the tall pine trees, and took out the tops some of the trees in its path. It was heading south - towards the Catwaba River.

We were scared and ran home to tell my mom - she said we were crazy and to take that mess somewhere else. We went out to the woods the next day, and saw the branches on the ground where the tops of about 4 trees had been cut off.
