UFO Sighting Report


December, 13, 2005


Raleigh, North Carolina, United States


Orb of light traveling at low altitude.

Date Reported:

12/14/2005 6:42:23 AM

Sighting Time: 

9:40 PM



No. of Witnesses: 



2 seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

I was not able to see any detail. The only way for me to describe it is as a glowing orb. It was not blindingly bright, but it radiated a bluish white light. The entire object appeared to be the same "lightness" - I saw no dark areas, shadows, etc... Due to the rate of speed it was moving at, it also gave off a small light trail that was very faint.

Size of Object(s)

My initial feeling was that it was about the size of the body of a small helicopter - like the kind that you see on "traffic patrol".

Description of Area / Surroundings

This intersection is just south of Raleigh, NC on Route 401 in Garner. It is an urban area, lots of strip malls, gas stations, etc. There were other people on the streets in cars, but not too many. I would say that in a 1/10th of a mile radius around me, there were no more than 15-20 cars. Most of the businesses in that area were closed.

Full Description & Details

I was on my way home from work @ 9:40 pm, and was stopped at the bottom of the off ramp from the 440 Inner Beltline to 401 South. I was the only car on the ramp, and I was waiting to make a right onto 401. An orb of light flew over my car from my right to left, and was traveling at an incredible rate of speed. I actually waited for a few moments and rolled down my window to see if I could hear a crash. On the left of this intersection, there is a 3 or 4 story commercial building (the flat roof square type) and the object created a light trail on the ground as it was moving.

My initial reaction when I saw the object was to duck down instinctively in my car. That is how close the object was. I would estimate that it was traveling aprox. 150 yds above the building. Also, there was no noise. I had turned my radio off a couple of minutes earlier, and even with my windows up, if it had been a helicoptor or other conventional craft, I would have been able to hear it clearly.

Of course, there is the RDU Airport to the north-west of where I was(the object was traveling due north, basically following route 401), but there is no way a craft would have been that low and traveling at such an unbelievable rate of speed to be making a landing approach.

I have seen shooting stars and meteor showers on more than one occasion in my life, but I have never seen anything like this.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

Not any that I have ever seen or are aware of.

Witness Background

I am married with 2 school age children, and have just gone back to work after being a Stay-At-Home mom for 8 years.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I do believe in life on other planets, and I do believe that other beings have visited us before. The subject of UFO's is fascinating, and I enjoy watching programs about them whenever I am lucky enough to catch one on TV. While I do find this subject interesting, I have never gone out of my way to research it.
