UFO sighting on August 20th 2009 at approximately 4:37 am in Singers Glen Va.

This morning while walking my dogs in the rural area of Singers Glen Va. I was looking up periodically as I usually do trying to see any shooting stars when I noticed what I at first thought was a satellite moving across the sky. I am a Chemical Engineer and was getting ready to leave for my regular morning workout before work.

It is quite common to spot satellites from my house and I enjoy tracking them across the sky and so am quite familiar with how fast they travel and what they look like (basically look like a moving small star). The ones I usually spot are typically moving in a West/East direction.

As I focused in on the moving object in the southern sky I realized that there were actually 3 objects. Two were adjacent to each other and the third was following behind about 5 to 8 times the distance of the two that were adjacent to each other. They looked very much like a satellite would (like small moving stars) and took about 30-40 seconds to move across the entire visible sky. They were traveling in a North to North West direction.

Here is how they were aligned in the sky: + + +
