Strange looking aircraft sighted above the water near Ft. Eustis

I was crossing the James River Bridge from Isle of Wight County at approximately 1215 -1220 hrs on Monday May 19th when I noticed a bright shiny object in the sky just above the river near Fort Eustis. I continued to watch it as I was driving. It did not seem to move. At first I thought it was a helicopter but quickly changed my mind because it was too bright and did not have the same form. What I was looking at resembled a blimp.

I did some searching on the internet for military aircraft. The only thing that resembled what I saw is the Multimax Star Light. The article stated that this blimp was currently being tested by the military.

I received an e-mail at work about a UFO sighting newspaper article and immediately realized that this was obviously the same thing that I saw crossing the bridge.

I’m certainly surprised that other people have not mentioned seeing this aircraft. Please inform the scientist that he is not the only person to see the aircraft.
