Cylindrical metallic object falling to earthOn Thursday night, January 12, 2017, as I was traveling south on highway 134, just about 5 miles outside of Troy, NC, I noticed a metallic cigar shape object falling straight down out of the sky. It was a clear night with a full moon, so I could see the object clearly. I drove past the object before it either hit the ground or whether it leveled out and flew away. I called a friend who I call a sky watcher, and sure enough, she had spotted a bright burst of light, which then faded quickly over the city of Sofia. Don’t know if the two events are related or not.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. PD))
