lSwannanoa nc 1202 am large pale light then bright flash helicopter type blades disappeared instantlyAbout 12:02 am 02/16/09, I saw a large pale light in the sky I was looking east. I knew is was not the moon because it was to close to ground. It was not a perfect round shape and seem to be in a cloud of light fog, it also had a longer trail of light slight above it. It seem to be moving very slow toward the east at the same height and then it seem to blow up with a large flash and I could seen what seem to be the blades of a helicopter but extremely long and very bright, it seem to disapear very quickly. I looked at the clock again and it was 12:09.
