Summer 1985

UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Winston-Salem North Carolina USA

Date: summer of 1985 around 9pm

Approach Direction: north

Departure Direction: south

Witness Direction: east

Description: I am not exactly sure if my date or time is correct. According to my sister who also witnessed this she thought I was close to 10 years old. I was inside the house at the tv. My sister was at her friends house across the street. She came running in the house and said come out side and check this out. When we went outside there was a object that was moving extremly slow. If you were to look straight up calling that 12:00.

I first saw the object at about 10:30 moving south when it got to about 2:00 it just vanished. I recall having a odd feeling as it vanished. The object was cigar shaped. But I recall seeing a structure of some sort about 1/3 from the back (I refer to back as the side that was trailing the direction it was heading). The colors of this object was unlike any other colors I have ever seen on a object especially in the sky.

The top was a very odd green color. I can only describe this as a liquid metalic neon color. The bottom was of the same intensity only in a bright neon red. There was also a very intense yellow colors as I recall this yellow was more like specs along the side in the green area. There was absolutly no sound that I can recall. I have never seen a photograph of any craft that has matched this.

As odd as it sounds the only UFO picture I have ever seen that matches this was in a very old painting. I have never forgotten seeing this object but never really talked about it until about 5 years ago. I had always remembered more than just me and my sister being there. I started asking my brothers and sistered what they remembered I am the youngest of 5. Only one remembered and it was my youngest sister. She told me it was only me and her at home that night. When I asked her about it she told me she had almost forgotten about it. I was on the phone with her when I asked her about what she remembered. I asked her to draw the object and point out what it looked like as best as possible. After she drew it I told her the website I had found that had the painting. When she went to the site she said I started scaring her. The object in the painting matched what she had drawn. I dont think my sister likes talking too much about it.

If anyone has seen this object or especially has a similar photograph of a object like this one please email me.

Color/Shape: Liquid metalic light neon green on top.
Liquid metalic red on the bottom.
Cigar shaped but short fat cigar shaped. With structure on top.
Intense yellow lights on the side.

Height & Speed: Unknown hight, I would say about maybe 10,000 - 15,000 ft. Traveled from north to south, I watched the object for about 10 minutes it seemed. It took about 10 minutes to move from about 10:30 to 2:00. Object vanished just vanished.

TV/Radio/Press: website that has the only matching object. Only difference is the colors the shades are in the right place but Im pretty sure neon paint didnt exist back when painting was done.

The first picture is the painting. Note in the left blow up picture the structure on top. The object I saw was reversed (or heading in the oposite direction). The structure on top was about the same even.
