Location: Winston-Salem, NC
Shape: Circle
Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Dark object going south below clouds with singular rotating light on the bottom

I was driving home from work and at approximately 8:10 pm I witnessed a strange object heading southward. The object appeared to be dark and round with a point on the top. It had a light that continuously rotated around the bottom as it traveled below the clouds.

I would estimate it was a few hundred feet in the air but it was a small object, maybe the size of a small helicopter or a bit smaller. I expected to see a tail on the object because of its' size but there was definitely no tail to the object.

I pulled over to watch the object for approximately one minute until I could no longer see it due to trees.

I am a pizza delivery driver in this area and am always watching the skies and I can tell you I have never seen this object in the skies around here or anywhere else.
