Duration:20 Seconds
Sphere seen traveling at a high rate of speed over Virginia Beach

While driving to work this morning, I noticed a bright light moving from west to east at an extremely fast pace. My initial thought was that I was observing a meteor, but it wasn’t displaying any characteristics of what I know from seeing meteors in the past. This sphere traveled in a straight line over the horizon, and then all at once, it shot upwards then shot straight down over the tree line. From my vantage point, it seemed to pass just south of Oceana Naval Air Station but this was too fast for any jet I’ve ever seen.
