Reader Submitted ReportI saw a ufo Wednesday evening, January 24, at around 7:45 p.m. It was stationary, rather low to the ground, and lit from inside by blue and white light. A beam of white light, cone-shaped, emanated from it, as though it wanted to search the ground. It seemed to be about 30-35 feet long and oval-shaped. I have good eyesight and do not have to wear glasses while driving. I had the feeling it was friendly in nature. Suddenly, it was gone.
Many, many such sightings over about six near-by counties were reported that night in the area, which surrounds Charlotte, North Carolina. I live in Lincoln County, which borders Mecklenburg, where Charlotte is located. The Charlotte Observer ran a front page story with a color photo of the same craft I saw, two days later. The writer of the article laughed at the whole idea, yet quoted many people who had seen it. Apparently over 900 calls were made reporting it.
