Location: Fredericksburg, VA
Shape: Circle
Duration:7-8 minutes
Slow flashing light grew dim enough to reveal circular craft at the center with dimmer steady lights around outer rim.

For the first 5 minutes we were driving and all that was seen was an orange light that got very bright, then grew extremely dim, then bright again, then dim.

We parked the car and got out to see it better and it got bright and then grew dim one last time. It was low enough we could see the outline of this circular craft with no light for just a second.

Then saw small lights start to appear around the outer rim.

It stayed quite close and above us for about another minute before slowly flying away.
