Location: Mannington, WV
Shape: Light
Duration:6 hours
Bright white light, in the sky and has stayed in the same area of the sky for 6 hours.

At approximately 11:00 at night I went out to smoke on my front porch and saw a floating light in the sky, it laid North-West from where i was sitting. I of course didn’t think much of it, because of where I live I am used to helicopters checking the area for Marijuana in the hills. I simply just went inside after thinking that it was nothing. An hour later I still saw the same light floating, this time i was a bit worried, so i grabbed my whole pack and started to watch this thing in the sky. I sat for 6 hours as the same light move at breakneck speeds, and move in directions that were in a zigzag formation, (it moved in other formations as-well, but that what the most significant one, along with circular.) the object also had blue and red flashing lights from time to time, but remained a bright white for the most part. The object has never come down once since i’ve started watching it. I also heard a distinct noise from it. It was like hearing a generator from a distance. but the object should of been too high in the sky for me to have heard it.

I have been waiting for this object to land and refuel, because i thought it was just a helicopter. But i know for a fact that regulation and the semi-above average fuel tank can allow a helicopter to stay in the sky for 5 hours. I’ve went inside now because of a wheezing, high pitched, laugh-like noise i heard not to far away. (the noise i heard could have been to no relation to this situation, but it might have.) I’ve been peeking through my window, it is still there.
