Location: Highland Springs, VA
Shape: Diamond
Duration:15 min. total
Large 1 to 2 diamond shaped object(s) with lights STOPPED low over Highland Springs VA subdivisions at night.

I saw a UFO tonight two times, most likely the same one. My husband saw it too but was driving. He kept driving around trying to "chase it." It was diamond shape. It stayed still over two places. It was large and very low. It wasn't a plane and the reason we noticed it was because it wasn't in the normal plane flyway (we are located near airport and used to where planes fly) and it was standing still both times. Again, we aren't sure if it was one or two objects.

19:00 dark clear night, in vicinity of RIC airport, but not in normal "plane flyways": The object(s) was diamond shaped and the top three lights (at each point) were white, the bottom one was red. It was the same both times. We heard no obvious noise and it was first seen low over a subdivision street on one side of Highland Springs' Nine Mile Road, then we saw it on the other side of Nine Mile road. Again, that is after my husband was trying to follow it around. We lost sight of it trying to go around the block so it could be one or two objects. The lights were very bright and larger than what we are used to seeing with planes. We have seen planes flying low over us over and over so we know what most planes look like in various positions.

My husband is an engineer and I am a former administrative professional.
