Place: Fredericksburg, VA Sighting Report: This evening at approximately 10:30 pm eastern standard time, my wife and daughter were driving home heading west. Near our neighborhood, they spotted a large aircraft hovering above the road. They said as they approached it, the craft did not move. It was hovering in one place.

As they drew closer, they lost sight of the craft as their car drove under it. My daughter turned back and could still see it hovering behind the car through the back window.

They both described the craft as a distinct boomerang shape with a single, very large white light at the end of the two boomerang arms and a smaller yellow light at the tip of the “v”. My wife said that it appeared to be the size similar to two large passenger jets hovering side by side.

They did not stop, as there was no place to pull the vehicle over. When they saw the craft, they were about a ½ mile from our home. They pulled into our neighborhood and my daughter lost sight of it due to traveling down hill. The trees blocked their view. They phoned me as they were looking at it and I went outside with a video camera but was unable to see anything in the sky.

Here is an illustration based on their description:
