National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 11/8/2011 00:00 (Entered as : 11/8/11 0:00)
Reported: 3/5/2012 3:37:13 PM 15:37
Posted: 3/13/2012
Location: Pinnacle, NC
Shape: Light
Duration: Just a matter of seconds,
Lights on & then shot straight across the sky at a slight downward angle & then gone w/ no fading of the light, within seconds, if that

I live out in the country about 5 miles from a smaller town. Where I live the homes are mostly acreage with a mountain here and there. The closest mountain to me is about 5 to 7 miles away.

I have a very clear section where I stand out on my porch at night and can see a large area of the night sky.

The night that this took place the sky was clear, no rain or clouds, at approximately midnight.

From out of no where I saw a bright light very high in the sky come shooting almost straight across at a very slight downward angle and then it just was gone. This occurred in a matter of seconds, if that. There was no fading of the light as it went by and no fading as it got out of distance.

I would set the scenario like this; lights on and then lights off, poof, just on and then gone. There was absolutely no sound from it at any point. In all my years I have never seen something like this before.

There was no shape of the object other than a light. From memory, I have to lean toward a white light but I cannot be sure. It may have been yellow, but the color would be no other color other than white or yellow. Like said though, from memory I aim towards a white light.

I am able to write this information clearly, other than the color of light, because I had written to my friend by email as to the event that took place, so months later now I am reporting this event that took place since I was able to come across this site.

Thank you.
