Occurred : 6/6/2000 01:45 (Entered as : 6/5-9/00)
Reported: 7/8/2000 08:58
Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Mt. Vernon, VA
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:1-2 sec
I spotted a short black rectangle in the sky moving moderately fast.

I was in the backyard of George Washington's house taking a tour sometime in the afternoon when I was looking around and I saw a black rectangle moving at a moderate speed just north of a group of trees. I grabbed my camera as fast as I could and took a picture of it. Then, I called to the group I was with including about 3-4 peopld and asked them if they had seen it. When they looked it had gone behind the trees. I only saw one. It was silent and jet black. It looked to me like a short rectangle. We figured at the time it was just a helicopter, but I seriously doubt that. I've never seen a jet black helicopter that was that big.
