Rockingham, North Carolina - 02-24-13
On February 24, 2013 as I was driving home from work at around 6:50 pm, I noticed some lights in the sky. There was a full moon out and no clouds.
I was on Richmond Rd in Rockingham, NC. This is a well-lit residential area. I could see some light just over the trees and as I watched them they seemed to be moving very slow, much slower than C130 transport planes that we often see in the area.
It was almost like it was gliding or hovering. As the area opened up some and there were less trees and I could clearly see that there were 2 of the objects; 1 behind the other.
I pulled into the parking lot of Roberdel Baptist Church to try and get a picture of them. As I pulled in and parked, I turned my truck off and I already had my window down and I noticed these objects made no sound.
The objects then banked to their right and I could not get a picture of them. I started my truck up and tried to follow them to try and get a better spot to view them.
As I crossed the stoplight which is less than 500 yds. from where I pulled in to park I noticed that they had picked up speed and were moving faster.
By the time I got another 1-2 miles down the road they were far enough away from me that I could not follow them. I had already called home and told my wife to look outside and see if she could see anything, but she could not.
Right after they banked to the right I had noticed what seemed to be an airplane coming towards them. When I got home I told my wife what I had seen and she said it was probably something military, but not 5 minutes later after she said that 2 big airplanes (C130 I guess) came flying over just above treetop level going in the same direction that the 2 objects were going.
They were low enough to vibrate the house. I went outside and noticed a lot of planes in the sky (small blinking lights). It was now 7:15 pm and I had to go and pick my daughter up from church.
I tell her about it and as we are coming home she tells me that she sees some lights also. I could not see them because they were too far to the right side to look at and drive safely.
When we get home we get out and notice 4 blinking lights that are in the shape of a square, almost like helicopters in formation, but no sound was heard, but at the distance they were I thought I would have heard something. They were flying from north to south. Time was about 7:45 pm.
I have never had an experience like this before because I can usually explain it away, but what got me on this was that there was no sound from the 2 boomerang objects, and when they banked I could make out lines on one of them and then all the plane traffic in the area after that.
