Roger Marsh of the Examiner reports on a Long View, NC, witness who claims that a 100-foot-long, oval-shaped object flying under 200 feet that moved over Highway 70.  

The witness reported that the object,turned, "shrank to a black dot and then disappeared as if it shot forward at an impossible speed about 11:15 a.m. on January 30, 2012, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness had just turned onto westbound Highway 70 when the object was first noticed and assumed to be an airplane moving just above the high tension power lines between 150 and 200 feet in the air and traveling left to right.

"I first thought the object was an airplane coming from the nearby Hickory Airport," the witness stated. "I did wonder why it was so low and that caught my attention."

The witness described the object.

"The object was oblong, oval, maybe 100 feet long and bulged in the middle to maybe 30-40 feet at the center. The sun was behind me and glaring off the craft and I thought at first that the sun's glare was hiding the wings. The object was whitish in color but seemed to reflect the sun like metal."

The object moved over the roadway that the witness was driving on - and about one-quarter mile ahead.

"It then turned and this is when it got interesting. It did not turn the way an airplane turns - it pivoted around its midsection. It got right over the center of the highway, then rotated until it was in line with the road."

The witness had a different view of the object now.

"The object was oval from the side, but as it turned I could see it was like a sub bun and looked circular from behind. It had no wings at all. I could see this clearly now. The back of the craft was the same white metal color, but in the center rear of the craft was a black featureless circle."

The object then seemed to disappear quickly.

"The craft began traveling along above the road slowly at first, then all of a sudden it shrank to a black dot and then disappeared as if it shot forward at an impossible speed."

Long View is in Burke and Catawba counties, NC, population 4,880. The witness offered one illustration of how the object looked. The above quotes were edited for clarity.
