Location: Burnsville, NC
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Light orb in daylight

We were parked at the top of a state park in a parking area on Mount Mitchell in North Carolina. My sister and I were sitting in a parked car, while our mother was finishing her hike. We could see across a valley onto the next mountain. We could see the trail that people were walking up. We could see the people as they were hiking up that trail.

A light orb hovered up the mountain in a fashion unlike the people. It went to a ledge and hovered for around 10-15 seconds. After that it went to the top peak of the mountain and shot off at an extremely fast speed.
