Date of Event: Somewhere between July and August 1986, mid day
Location of Event: Denver, North Carolina
Message: The exact date, and time are kind of fuzzy, as it was a long time ago. My dad, uncle and I were going bass fishing on Lake Norman, in Denver North Carolina. We were driving down the road approaching Little Creek Access area, about 100 yards from the entrance to the parking lot. This area would be sort of between McGuire Nuclear Station, and the Marshall Steam Plant, just off the Main Channel. Out of the corner of my eye, just above the edge of the tree line, to the left side of the area, I saw something that was of a dark gray color, and huge.
From my memory, it appeared to be like I was seeing something the size of an aircraft carrier, or larger. It was like it was very far away, and I didn’t make out any detail, as something from far away would appear. I didn’t say a word to anyone. I just looked at my uncle sitting on my right, and at that same moment, he said loudly, “Did You See That?” I personally only seen the object for a split second, and as we got closer to the access area, going down hill towards the parking lot, the tree line hid what ever it was that we saw.
I wouldn’t have said anything, if it weren’t for my Uncle stating that he saw it too. From my view, I’m not saying it was a space ship, but my uncle said it looked like a giant spaceship himself. I said “yes” I saw something too, but couldn’t tell exactly what it was! My dad looked at both of us, and laughed out loud, “you two are full of”, well you might imagine the rest of my dad’s statement. I don’t think he ever did believe us.
If it weren’t for my Uncle seeing, and saying what he did, I might to this day dismiss it as simply a huge dark cloud. My uncle and I discussed what we both saw that whole afternoon while fishing. What ever it was that we saw was so big I seriously doubt that we were the only ones who would have seen it, yet I heard of no reports of a sighting in the area. We never discussed it again. My uncle passed away several years ago, so I have no one to back my story now.
The reason I bring it up now is because of the sighting in Texas last week. I had never heard of a sighting of something that big before. You always hear of people claiming to see a small craft, but I personally have never heard of such a large object sighted in these parts, and I’ve never seen such a thing again. We both definately saw something that day. But what it really was will allways remain a mystery.
