Location: Salem (south of), VA
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Light in the ski far south of Salem Virginia on a clear late afternoon.

It was around 5:30pm and the sky was clear and bright. As me and my son(13)was coming out of the Wal-Mart in Salem Virginia i looked up in the ski to the far south.

And I then told my son to look at that bright "light" in the sky. We didn't see a shape but it look like one "headlight" in the sky traveling backwards.

At first this "light" wasn't moving fast. It actually look like it was just sitting still. Then we looked up a little higher and we saw three jets at first they look like they was just going across but then they starting racing towards the "light".

At first I thought they were regular plane but they were too high and moving fast. Then the light" starting moving south.

As the jets got closer to the "light" it stated to move faster. So I told my son to get in the car because it's going in the direction we are going. I could barely keep my eyes on the road because i was too busy looking up "accident waiting to happen".

As we travel south on 460 to the Elliston area the light started to slight disapear (it look like it was now some where past blacksburg area) then from the southeast we saw another jet or miltary plane moving fast in the same direction as the other 3 jets and the "Light".

After that i couldn't see any more because of the mountains.

Whatever it was the i know the military was going after. If i saw that "Light' i know others had to see it as well.

I am Christain and i believe in GOD and i don't believe in UFO or anything like that. But after seeing what me and my son saw today make me think other wise.

I sometimes hear the miliatary planes fly over our area for training purposes but this time they were no-where to heard but only to be seen racing across the sky.
