Location: Richmond, VA
Shape: Changing
Duration:1 hr 16 mins
Myself and son had just driven over the state line of North Carolina going into Virginia.we were on the highway and seemed to be the only truck on the road @ that time.

I noticed in the sky directly ahead of us were 3 lights. They lights remained still for a few minutes then began to spin counterclockwise slowly at first then the lights seemed to be spinning so fast that it appeared to be one light.

The lights seemed outline a sphere shape. The lighted sphere then moved towards the trees on our left. The sphere seemed to become a big ball of white light which proceeded to move through the trees towards the highway were we were driving.

I yelled @ my son saying don't you see the lights?! He was not responding at all!

I don't recall what happened after that but I know we could not account for aprox 1hr and 16 mins. of missing time. I know this because of the travel time from the point we left and how long it wld take to get to were we were and there's no way it would have taken us that long, my son has a lead foot.
