Large white un identified blimp-like craft seen mid-day over country-side in Augusta County, VA.

At around lunch time on Wed 7/28/10, I was driving west from Staunton, VA, on US Rt. 254, when I noticed a distant object in the sky which I thought at first was a cloud, but its shape seemed more defined than a cloud. As I neared the object it appeared to be a very large white blimp-like craft, moving quite slowly over the countryside just east of North Mountain. It was in vision for several minutes until I lost sight due to the terrain. Inquiries to the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office, the local airport, and at a nearby store were of no help in either corroborating the sighting or revealing the craft’s origin.
