Date of Sighting: Summer, July 1998

Location of Sighting: Hendersonville, NC

Number of UFO(s), including the Color(s), Size(s) and Shape(s): At sleep away camp, summer of 1998 I was in the woods by myself during a night scavenger hunt. I heard a continuous beeping sound, I looked up, and above my head over the trees I saw an enormous saucer with lights circling underneath the bottom of the aircraft .

It was difficult to make out but after my eyes adjusted to the lights I was able to distinguish the shape of the saucer. I was in disbelief and in shock. All of a sudden, the saucer tilted and shot off diagonally into the distance. About 10 seconds later, two army helicopters went chasing after it in the same direction.

Nobody else saw this as I was by myself, and of course no one believed me when I told them. The lights disappeared as it flew off into the distance and it was like the saucer was camouflaged with the night sky. Completely surreal and I remember this as if it were yesterday.

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: Directly above the pine trees.

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): I’m not sure the direction, as I was in the woods, but it flew off to the right.

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): None.
