Location: Lexington, VA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
What I saw was a light in the sky that moved silently and very fast down the side of a mountain.

I can't remember the exact date that this occurred but I was with a group of friends on top of a mountain just outside of Lexington Virginia. We were on North Mountain which about a 15min. drive from Goshen Pass. Most of my friends had their back turned and didn't see what I saw but one friend saw it out of the corner of his eye and yelled what was that. What I saw was a bright light in the sky. It a round ball of light. It was about a hundred yards away hovering over the trees on top of the mountain. It didn't make a sound. My friend saw it when it zipped really really fast down the mountainside in a zig zag motion and faded out of sight. I was compeltely sober. I am a skeptical person by nature but I know what I saw. It could be a human made aircraft that the government is not talking about but it definately was not a plane or helicopter. I may have written it off as a halucination if my friend had not seed it too.
