Carrboro, North Carolina An Unusual Maneuvering Object

Date: January 14, 2007
Time: Approx 6:23pm - 6:50pm - Approx 18:23 – 18:50

I was in Carrboro, North Carolina at the exit ramp of Hwy 40 and hwy 86. I was casually picking a real estate sign and looking at the clear sky. Suddenly I saw something moving at what looked like the speed of a military jet. But after it traveling about 3 inches from my view it stopped in mid air. I continued to watch it and it did not fade. Instead it changed directions and started moving vertically, back and forth as though oscillating. It then started to make odd movements, hooked shaped movements with sudden stops. Then forward movements darting the erratic movements before it went further to the right.

I tried to call several friends to see. One of the first came out of her house in Durham, NC. I told her to look up and to the left of those three bright stars, almost in a vertical straight line. I told her to watch that star sitting alone by itself.

After a few seconds I asked her to tell me what she was seeing, she said the star is moving up and down. This sighting lasted around 30 minutes before it continued to my right which I think was east and gradually faded. My friend got frightened and went back into her house. I could not tell any shape. It just looked like a star (dot) in the sky. It was clearly visible, but not the brightest object in the sky. In fact it passed just below the brightest object from my perspective. I have never seen anything move as erratically not change flying directions immediately, no wide turns or anything. Just go to one way and immediately retrace it's direction back. Then back and forth then move forward a little more make different motions and hook like motions and then move across the sky and start bouncing (oscillating movement) again until it went off to the east and faded. and not in its original direction, about 60 degrees to the left. I do not know what it was but I have never seen anything move like it.

Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
