I live in the NE section of Hickory,NC.
It was March 21st at 8:40PM I had walked outside at 8:22 pm looking for the Pan Starrs comet I was having No luck and was about to walk inside when I just happened to look up toward Orion when something caught my eye.
It was moving very fast, But I had enough time to look at it through my 10x40 binoculars for several seconds.
It was Twisting and Rolling just like a Ribbon or a Snake But moving Width Wise East to West as if a strong wind was pushing it. The breeze was maybe 5 mph But blowing West to East, There was absolutely No Sound.
The object was self illuminated almost pulsating a dull gold/copper color
But only on the bottom.
Like a light was shining on it from the ground But that wasn't the case.
I started to run inside and call the local airport, but we are about to lose our airport's tower and I didn't want to bother them with a UFO report.
The object passed over my yard and 2 of my neighbors yard toward a shopping Center before it vanished from view.
I do know Geese fly at night but they don't glow or shimmer and they normally honk when they fly so they don't bump into each other, Plus this wasn't a V shape.
I live in a fly zone for the airport so I'm used to seeing aircraft at night, I'm guessing this was at least 1000 feet up and about 120 ft long like the 3 Buses end to end give or take, But not very thick.
Ive seen several things I couldn't explain in the years past, BUT nothing like this and the effect it has had over me, I have been so on edge all day I just felt like I had to report it.
I hope another backyard stargazer was as Lucky as I and got to see it also.
It was pretty amazing, I just wish I had taken my camera outside, but I hadn't.
