Teens Report Spotting UFO

By Tom Embrey: Staff Writer

Jacob Cole and Ben Sizer sat on the porch of Cole's home near
Lake Auman, grilling hamburgers when they noticed a "bright,
big, green glow" in the sky.

"It was fizzling, falling like it was on fire," Cole said of the
object that appeared in the sky around 6:15 p.m.

As it fell, Cole said the object split, with the smaller orb
falling at a faster rate.

Cole, 17, said he and Sizer, 16, had been outside for about an
hour when they noticed the object.

"I yelled at my buddy (Sizer), and we just stood there and
stared at it," Cole said.

The Pinecrest High School students say they watched the objects
for several minutes before Cole, an astronomy buff, raced inside
the house to grab his telescope.

Cole said the object grew very bright, as he watched it from his
kitchen window.

When he returned to the porch, the object was gone. He guessed
it must have disappeared behind a stand of trees on the other
side of the lake.

Monday afternoon, the boys had not investigated the site where
the object appeared to land.

The Moore County Sheriff's Office had no reports of UFOs or
strange sightings this weekend. The Leonid Meteor Shower
occurred this weekend. Experts say people is rural areas had the
best chance to see the show, and that the peak viewing hour was
11 p.m. Saturday.

According to most experts, the Leonid Shower was less
spectacular this year than in years past.

When asked if he thought he had seen the remnants of the shower,
Cole was adamant in his denial.

"My dad is big into astronomy," Cole said, " We've looked at
planets, watched shooting stars and meteor showers before. This
was nothing like a meteor shower."

He added, "There was no noise, no kaboom, so it couldn't have
been fireworks."
