Location: Pikeville, NC
Shape: Circle
Duration: 1 hour
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Circle or tear drop white orb seen over Pikeville, NC.

I was first alerted by my wife at 4am who noticed a bright white light that appeared artificial in the shape of a circle or tear drop, it did not twinkle or look anything like a star or planet and was definitely not a plane or helicopter. It stayed in one spot for. Close to an hour and then appeared to gradually slip away.

This object was very noticeable and as I said appeared to be artificial light such as from a craft not anything like a star or otherwise.
