Round gold object with white "wings" near Rippon, West Virginia.

Round gold-colored body with white wings or other edge attached roughly at center of round body. I slowed my driving, because I thought it was an airplane coming in for an emergency landing on Route 340, just south of Rippon, WV and ten miles north of Berryville, VA. As I slowed, the craft disappeared from sight, even though it was only about 200 yards from me. I saw no other witnesses.
