911 Operators Get Several Calls About UFO

LINCOLN COUNTY -- Countless calls were made to emergency centers
from across the Carolinas from people who reported seeing an
unexplained bright light falling from the sky.

It was spotted around 8 p.m. Wednesday night.

A number of people called Lincoln County 911 to describe the

"It was unusually bright, like a comet coming down. They're
usually straight down. This one went quite a ways across the sky
and finally the light went out."

It was an unidentified object that was seen by people from
Greer, South Carolina to Asheville at the exact time. It was so
vivid that the Lincoln County 911 dispatcher sent an officer to
check it out.

Dispatch: "Did you see it?"

Officer: "10-4."

Dispatch: "We've gotten several calls."

Officer: "I'm out on 27 heading west. I don=92t know what it was=85
like a shooting star or something."

Lincolnton psychologist Granville Angell was with clients in a
home office when it caught his eye. He immediately ran outside.

"It was like a ball that grew a tail. It was about 20 to 30
degrees above the horizon. Uh, and it came from west to east. It
was like a shallow arc across the sky and descended down," he

At first Angell feared it might be an airplane crashing, but a
former military pilot himself, he said the colors weren't right.
The orb was a bluish-white and he said it moved too slowly to be
a comet.

"It was a very shallow descent and a glowing flare as it went
down. It was visible for about, oh, 10-15 seconds," he
explained. "Heaven only knows what it could be, but some type of
a UFO. I'm not saying an alien but something."

Then, just as suddenly as it appeared, all who saw it said it
disappeared into the horizon without answers to what the strange
sight was.

Interestingly the National Weather Service fielded more than a
dozen calls, and of course there was no report of a downed
plane, so the strange object remains a mystery.
