As if there wasn’t enough high strangeness to go around the nation at this point in time, North Carolina has been the site of a series of bizarre events.

We have, as a country, been witnessing a number of unprecedented incidents over the course of the last few years.  The election of Donald Trump has been responsible for at least some of the hoopla we’ve been forced to endure, but some of the more dramatic nonsense has been provided by someone else…possibly not from this world.

Another alleged UFO sighting near Charlotte has appeared on Facebook and in this case, it was posted by a husband and father who says he doesn’t necessarily believe in UFOs.

Javion Hill, 35, of Kings Mountain, North Carolina, says he took several photos of the object during a storm on the night of Aug. 18, as he drove on U.S. 74 southwest of Charlotte.

The images feature something square hovering above the treeline, with its edges fringed in lights. Hill told the Charlotte Observer the craft frightened him to the point that he didn’t sleep that night.

“I was on my way home with my wife on the speaker phone, and it looked like there was a tornado coming, so I was trying to take a picture of the clouds for my wife,” says Hill.

This is not the first time that the Charlotte area has been rocked by odd observations.

Hill says it’s possible what he saw was a military craft. Conspiracy theorists maintain many UFO sightings in the region are actually an experimental military spacecraft known as the TR-3B, an anti-gravity craft that hovers. Some believe the craft is from one of the state’s military bases, which include Fort Bragg, Pope Air Force and Camp Lejeune. reports the TR-3B “doesn’t exist officially.”

Reaction to Hill’s photo has included mostly questions, but at least one person, Shelby native Eric White, said he also saw something in the same area that “vanished in thin air.”

Is this a case of a secret military craft traipsing around the skies above the Tar Heel State, or is there a more terrestrial explanation?

We’ll let you be the judge.
