Bright white object seen with one bright white missile-like object shooting out from the bottom

I woke at 2:00 am and, looking out of my bedroom window, I noticed a bright white object moving slowly through the sky. I was looking N/NW and the object appeared to be traveling east toward Winston-Salem, NC. It appeared to be about 20-30 miles away but it was hard to tell and was flying at a height that I usually associate with local planes and jets that are landing at the airport in Winston.

It caught my attention that the object (which I assumed to be a plane) didn’t seem to have any of the usual lights required for aircraft. I lost sight as the object passed on the side of my house so I got up and went to a large window in the front of my house (which faces east) to see the object as it came back into view. It seemed to turn slightly south and I could finally see a flashing red light on it but the flash was not steady but rather erratic.

I watched it for 15 more seconds or so and then (to my amazement) a white light that I can only describe as looking like a missile (or a laser) shot out from the bottom straight toward the ground. Needless to say, a burst of adrenaline went through me! At first I thought a plane had dropped a bomb on the outskirts of Winston and that we might be under attack on our on soil---I stood looking at the sky for awhile and observed nothing else unusual. The object traveled on and I lost sight of it in the tree line.

The next morning I had to travel to Tennessee and when I arrived at my parents’ home, I asked them if anything had been said on the news about a bomb (or whatever) being dropped near Winston-Salem------that’s how unnerved I was.
