Posted: 3/23/2004
Location: Greensboro, NC
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 5-10 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
I saw one or two silver, elongated objects moving across the sky and then they just darted away and vanished.

I was driving south on Hwy 220 toward Greensboro out of Virgina. It was still daylight. An object appeared in front of me in the distance and was moving in a very fluid manner across the sky. It was silver, elongated and left no fuel trail like a plane. There were two airliners in the air at what seemed to be about the same altitude and they were leaving trails, but the object was not. I kept watching it and then it just seemed to dart straight up and vanish. A few minutes later I saw another object that looked exactly the same. I don't know if it was the same object as before or if it was a second object, but its characteristics were the same as the first. The second object stayed in the sky moving to the west for just a few minutes and then it darted up and away like the first object. It was difficult to tell the altitudes of the objects, but I would say it was between 10,000 - 25,000 feet.
