Saucer shaped chrome vessel hovering near wind turbines in Elizabeth City, NC

August 13, 2016, 6:57AM. My background: I am currently a private investigator and former law enforcement officer.

I was traveling northbound on US 17 in Elizabeth City, NC. A wind farm is under construction and wind turbines are being constructed on some of the massive areas of farm land at that location. I was looking to my left and checking out how many turbines were under construction when I noticed an object above the height of the turbines and a little to my north west.

The object was of a classic “saucer” shape with a domed top. It was silver in color and reflected the sun like chrome. It appeared to just hover and then slowly glide through the air. There was no visible exhaust and no sound noticed. No lighting on the vessel was observed.

I thought to myself, “I need to stop and video this.” I looked to my right to see if the right lane was clear so I could pull to the side of the road. I looked back up and the vessel had vanished. There was no sign of it anywhere.

I have seen other questionable lights and lighted objects at night but this was my first daytime sighting that I can say for certain was a UFO.

I am also posting this, wondering if anyone else observed the same object that morning.
