I was on my way to Washinton D.C. Getting to the entrance to the city i was listening to my radio, my friend was driving and i was just looking upto the sky with the window open,i saw this orange light aproaching from the NW side and i though was an airplane, i look away and look back not giving any thoughts to it,when i look again was already in top of the car still thinking was an airplane i just went back to my business, i saw it again going closer to us, but to the NE and i thought "have to be an helicoper it was to big and low and i saw something moving inside the orange glow. it wasn an airplane i was sure , but the more i look i got convince it wasnt normal,,, was like a cigar form of something inside moving like side to side very fast(what i thought first was an hellicopter) i notice the orange glow was all around and over the object and not under or top of it! and was amaze how close it felt and fast, no noise came from it either and suddenly it just move from one point to the other like in fractions of seconds and desapear!! i was screaming to my friend I think i saw a u.f.o.! when i was litle me and my granfather saw 3 orange lights in the sky in v formation that suddenly just break formation and dessapear the same way.. i am just in shock still... had never been involve in something this close.
