North Carolina: Marion to Morganton on I-40: large glowing object over road messes with car clock

Earlier this evening I reported an encounter with a possible UFO over I-40 eastbound, between Marion and Morganton, NC. In my first report I thought I was missing an hour and a half because the dashboard clock said 10PM when I saw the bright light above me, but I had only left Old Fort about half an hour before, about 8PM.

I have revised my opinion: I think the dashboard clock was affected. I think it mistakenly said 10PM, because I arrived in Rocky Mount between 12:30 AM and 1:00 AM as expected. Its a six hour drive from Asheville. I was right on time. It would have been utterly impossible to go from Morganton to Rocky Mount in only 2 and 1/2 hours. Therefore, the clock must have been affected by the object I saw. This means that I was NOT missing an hour and a half. Whew! Because my cell phone battery wasn't working either, I couldn't check the time on my cell phone. Don't wear a watch.

Thank you for allowing me to alter my conclusion. I just didn't think of it before.
