I now write about the saucer I saw in the 80's near Charlottesville, Va.

I was on the way to see my sister and her family on this new years eve and was crossing the bridge in Albermarle county over the watershed for the city of Charlottesville, va. There to the left of the rail on the bridge was a certifiable flying saucer. It was close to the edge of dark, but the object was very clearly there and was just hovering there. The top was concave and around the bottom were "windows" and there seemed to be a light on inside as light was coming from each one. I took off as soon as I got a good look since it was so obvious what it was. It was gone when I came back later that night. (The date is appox. since I can't remember the exact year.

My ex wouldn't let me tell anyone about this for fear of drawing attention to himself as he hadn't filed his income taxes in a lot of years and was afraid of being "fingered"!) The saucer was silver and about the size of a city bus. A friend of mine had seen something that followed her home ab! out the same time frame and there was a write up in the paper about it. I wanted to contact her for details, but wasn't allowed to do so. I should do it now, even after all these years.

I am telling this now in the hopes that someone can shed some info on my sighting of the 80's.
