Duration:20 minutes
A U.F.O. was obseved being chased by f-16's in Waldorf, MD, which is located 20 miles from Wash D.C.

on 7-26-02, I heard jets take off from andrews air force base around 1:15 a.m.. About 5 minutes later the jets were in over my area, sounding as if they were flying at low altitude. I went outside and saw a fixed wing military aircraft using its full afterburner and traveling at a s.e. heading. Thr jet left the area at a high rate of speed and quickley left the area.

I went back inside perplexed as for a explanation regarding these unusal flight manauvers at this time of night, AT this point I heard more jets in the distance and went back outside and coming from the north I see this strange blueish orb traveling at about the same speed if you could compare to a shooting star.

I say it was about at 5000 feet when I first saw this and within a second it desended to about 3000 feet in about 1 second. It went right over my house making absolutley no noise whatsoever, at this point a f-16 has come on to the flight path of the object on a S.E. heading about 1000 to 2000 feet behind it clearly in a pursuit mode and unable to vector the object.

I followed the pursuit as long as I could until I lost sight of the crafts. A neighbor who was outside smoking a cigar also wittnessed the pursuit.

The object from start to finished stayed on a horizontal heading traveling from N TO s.e.
