Huge dark gray UFO seen from Newland, NC
EDITOR’S NOTE: We received a phone call from Louise Shissler on February 13, 2015 about her recent UFO sighting in Newland, NC on February 11, 2015. There were two of us on the line and here is what she told us about her high mountain sighting. Please note there was another sighting report that same evening from the same general area. That testimony follows this one.
About an hour before sunset on February 11, 2015, Louise braved the cold for a quick walk. When she looked toward the south-southwestern sky, she saw a “huge oval-shaped UFO hovering in the saddle between two mountains.”
At arm’s length, she said the UFO “was as wide as three of my knuckles.” This indicates the object was quite large because a thumb at arm’s length easily covers a full moon.
She described the dark gray UFO as being “non-reflective and opaque” and encircled with white light. She said the object must have been mechanical because “it was sharp edged” as was the circle of light around it.
Louise said the UFO didn’t move during the 15 minutes she watched it. When asked how it disappeared, she said she headed back home before it disappeared because it was so cold that evening.
