Location: Woodbridge, VA
Shape: Light
Duration:45 minutes
Many odd behaving lights hover above trees, then rise in the sky, moving strangly and not making noises.

On the 5th I was driving with my dad, when I look to the west and there are four or five yellowish white lights hovering low in the skyline, clustered together. They didn't appear to be moving but then one at a time about 30 seconds after each other, they would move, usually vertically into the sky and start to blink strangely, very unlike the behavior of an airplane or helicopter. We could not hear them at all, they did not go in one straight path like an airplane but moved sporadically. We drove into a parking lot and saw more of the same kind of behavior for about thirty minutes. We would see a few a yellowish lights just above the trees, stagnant and then it would start moving up ward, and then proceed to move about the western part of the sky oddly. At one point there was eight or ten in the sky at once, all in the western part of the sky. None of them crossed the sky like a plane does. I saw one fall straight down extremely fast, appearing almost like a meteor. My dad thinks they must have been near Dulles airport, but we are both absolutely certain these could not have been airplanes, or even helicopters.

On the 6th, after explaining to my friend earlier in the day about my experiences, i continued to see suspicious blinking and hovering lights throughout the night. But around 10:15 we went out on his driveway to smoke a cigarette. And immediately upon looking at the sky we could already see strange blinking lights at different heights in the sky. This time it appeared they were directly above Woodbridge. A few seemed to cross directly above us. The yellow lights would again hover at a distance above the treetops, and then rise, start blinking white, red and blue lights and then move at a very fast speed, all without making any noise at all. One did cross above us particularly low in the sky. When it was above us it appeared to look like a triangle with a light in each corner, but we could not see the outline of the plane. Again, we felt odd that it didn't make any noise at all. We saw about ten of these, all throughout the sky, and on the drive home we saw one low in the sky, with many more lights then the others. It had white lights all lined up on it's side on one single craft. We took some pictures of several of these lights, I'm not sure about the quality as I haven't seen them on a computer yet, but my friend can send then to me and if you want I can send these to you.
