Posted: 10/27/2004
Location: High Point (rural), NC
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 45 seconds?
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Very fast and turned. Not a meteor.

Sitting at a stop sign on country road and facing south we both saw object moving very fast at about 45 degree angle from horizon. Object had bright light on front with lesser light behind it. First thought was meteor due to incredible speed, but soon realized it was not falling, but heading west on horizonal path. My friend jumped out of car to observe better and object curved into a northly direction. We tried to pursue a better view, but it was soon out of sight over northern horizon. There was no sound at all. Too fast for airplane & we don't think missles have lights on them(?).
