Full Description of event/sighting: As my girlfriend at the time and I drove along state highway 54 outside of Chapel Hill, we were on a hill top going down the hill, and heading back up the next hill when we saw a round lighted object sitting across the road. It was about 60 feet in diameter and it just sort of hung over the road. It made no sound at all. As we approached, it rose up into the air about 50 feet or so and as we passed under it, the inside the car turned kind of blue. Needless to say, my girlfriend freaked out on me. I slowed to about 10 mph. As we moved, the object stayed right over us, still the whole inside of the car was lit up. I rolled down my window and looked up and saw that it was round, and had bright colored lights. The lights seemed to change some how. As I calmed down my girlfriend, I assured her we were not going to die. I got her to grab my camera and snap off a few shot of the object. As I continued to drive along the cars behind me seem to all stop. The object still stayed right on top of us as we drove along. When I turned, it turned. I noticed that the on coming traffic did not move either. The traffic was light at this time and after about 15 minutes the object stopped, I stopped, then it went straight up at such a speed and then just shot off at an angle into the darkness.

We drove back to Cary, North Carolina and went to se my girlfriends next door neighbor. He had worked on Project Blue Book, so he seemed like the right person to talk to. He wanted my film bad, but I would not give it to him. He left the room and I could hear him make a few calls as we decided to leave. I took the film to the drug store for processing and when I got it back, all of the negatives of the object where gone. The pictures I took before the encounter, and after all came out fine. But I was short by 5 negatives. Not even blanks were in the pack. I told my dad about it and he thought I was nuts. I know my Dad was in the air force too.

When I went home for a visit a few years ago, my dad made a point of telling me that my UFO experience had been reported a few weeks ago in the local paper, as a squad of helicopters. Now mind you, this is some 18 years after the actual event. I know that at the time there was a small article in the paper and some 300 people reported the sighting.

Thank you very much to the witness for their report.
