SUMMER 2004………BALSAM RIDGE NORTH CAROLINA
Living up where we do, we are exposed to so much sky. Our house and five-acre yard are clear of trees and face due south, or in the direction of Cashiers. There is a good 180-degree view panning from Double Top Mountain on our east side to Greens Creek towers in the west. The town of Sylva sits below. We see meteors, shooting stars, the hospital’s medical helicopter, space shuttles, satellites, jets and an occasional small plane landing at the Jackson County Airport in Cullowhee. Our view of the night sky is clear and vast.
One particular evening in late summer, my husband’s son and mother were outside on the deck with me eating dinner and relaxing at the table. It was dusk and the sky was clear. Suddenly we saw it. It hovered in the sky to the south-southwest. It seemed to be near the old bald side of Cullowhee Mountain. It was orange, bright orange and triangular in shape. There was a ball of orange light at each corner of the ship. It just stayed there, suspended in the sky for the longest time. We all noticed it, saw it stay in the same spot and thought it odd that it didn’t move away.
We started discussing it, while it continued to suspend in our sight, considering military developments and trial testing of unusual crafts. Wouldn’t it be a good place to practice flying them here in the corner of Western North Carolina with a limited human population – fewer spotters we thought. But the shape and unusual orange color were so different from the red, green or white we were all used to seeing and it just hovered for the longest time. It simply didn’t fit the mold for any type of airship we’d ever seen.
No one counted the time officially, but we all agreed the hovering phase lasted around two minutes. Then all of a sudden, like it knew we were there, it flew straight toward us at such a rapid speed and went directly over the house.
It landed, or appeared to have landed, on the property just up the mountain behind us. We went to the back side of the house to follow it, trying to see through the trees. All we could see was a hugh orange glow in the woods above our home.
Then the phone rang. Two of our friends down the mountain called and said, “Emory, is your house on fire? Are the woods on fire near your house? We see a blaze of orange. It looks like it’s right where you are. Are you okay?”
“We’re fine,” I replied. “We see it, too. We think it’s a spaceship. We’ve been watching it for awhile.”
Crazy, I know, but I got in the car. My brave stepson insisted he was coming with me. Together we drove up the mountain to try to catch sight of we don’t know what – maybe wreckage. But there wasn’t anything. It was gone. No orange glow. No smoke. No smell. No ship. We still don’t know what we saw that night but we all saw it. NOTE: The above image is CGI.
