Between 23:30 and 24:00 a vapor trail

Observed a spiral vapor trail that had three turns before it seem to climb straight up then disappear. Then about 5 minutes later the object seem to come straight down leaving another vapor trail. Before the horizion the object stop leaving the vapor trail. There was no fire ball or glowing with this object going up or coming down. The object seem to be launch from the air because there was no vapor trail going up before the spiral. This is east toward Richmond, Williamsburg, Norfolk, VA. There was no glow of anything hitting the ground. Unsure about the distance Richmond is 100 miles from my house. The down vapor trail had reflective light for along time. More so then going up.

((NUFORC Note: We believe the observer erred in indicating the date of 05JL99. We think the event he alludes to is the launching of two missiles out of the U. S. Navy Wallops Island, VA, Flight Test Facility. We have changed the date. PD))
