Full Description & Details

Don't remember the exact year, but would estimate before my son was born - 1993. My husband and I lived a couple miles from the Atlantic ocean (1 mile from the NC intercoastal highway). It was getting dusk, and my husband come inside our home and told me that I had to go outside and "look at this". I stood with my husband in our front yard (rural area but a lot of highway traffic 1 mile away) and looked up at what was obviously somekind of vehicle. I don't remember all the specifics of the shape other than it was tubular/ cylindar shaped that was translucent with different color lights glowing from it. It hoovered over the trees near the dirt road in front of our doublewide for probably a minute. For some strange reason I was not scared or alarmed - but a sense that there was nothing I could do about it but stay calm. After a while it was gone (I don't remember if it left suddenly or disappeared - I think left suddenly). I didn't pay too close attention to the details because I thought we'd be hearing news reports of the sighting. When the TV and radio didn't mention it, I was very surprised. It was so close that I thought possibly cars on the coastal highway could have seen it or the homes that were spaced every acre apart on our dirt road. This is the first time I have every mentioned this to an agency. For some reason my 11 year old son went to school talking about the UFO I had seen (actually saw another one in 1992 - very different experience) and directed me to the internet. I saw your "post a report" and decided to do it.

The other UFO was not near as dramatic. I was on my balcony (urban city of Charlotte, NC) at about 5:00 am smoking a cigarette. Something bright caught my attention to my left. As I turned my head, I saw a bright light the shape of a quarter moon (apparently pretty far away) up in the sky. It moved horizontally (as if it were skipping across the sky) for about 1/2 second and then disappeared. I immediately thought, "well, I have now seen two UFO's in my lifetime". Who would ever believe this? (No other witnesses to this one.)

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

I'd be curious to know what a weather balloon looks like because there is no possibility it could be anything else. (That I know of anyway.)
