On the evening of January 8th, 2002 my girlfriend and I were coming back from my brothers house that lives in Mosely, Va. ( approximately 20 miles south west of Richmond, VA) I was driving in the east bound lane on highway 360. I spotted this cluster of yellowish orange lights with a large red pulsing light from a distance of about a mile away. The most peculiar thing about this, at that moment in time was the distance of the red pulsing light to the cluster of lights. The red pulsing light was hanging below the cluster of lights. This object/craft was heading west(towards us). I had the video camera with us in the truck. The model is a Sony TRV520 digital video camera with a 20X optical zoom. So, I found a good spot to pull over. My girlfriend and I both got out of the truck. I grabbed the video camera and she grabbed the binoculars. After realizing that we still had the lens cover on the camera I was able to get the craft focused and zoomed in on it. This is the most bizarre craft I have ever seen. It flew under a star, and as it did, you can still see the star. Transparent? The craft is a cluster of small lights in a hexagon formation. There is a triangular portion in the front from which the large red pulsing light is affixed.

I have video of the craft. I will be submitting still images which are video captures to Peter Davenport/NUFORC

((NUFORC Note: We have viewed the video and the stills, and some object apparently was captured on film by the witness. We do not know what the object was, but judging from the video, it seems to have generated a noise that sounds to us similar to the noise generated by a jet aircraft. However, I emphasize that we have no idea what the object is. PD))
