Location: Dale City, VA
|While viewing neighborhood fireworks on the street, saw a red object overhead moving south to north slowly at about 75 degrees above the horizon. Trees in the neighborhood blocked the initial approach from our vantage point. Assumed it was an aircraft since it followed the same direction as a flight path over the neighborhood to DC National. No noise was discerned. The object made a turn and headed west. It proceeded to climb and then we lost sight of it.
Approximately 10 minutes later, a similar object appeared from the same initial direction (south to north). Using binoculars this time, a faint but dark outline of a circle with a gray center could be discerned that had a red light pulsing directly underneath that also changed color to white, blue, and yellow but with the overall color being red. The red was a ruby red and not like an aircraft navigation light.
The object turned and headed west, repeating the previous maneuver of appearing to climb and gain! distance before disappearing.
A similar object appeared 10 to 15 minutes later again from the south but this time slightly further away. It also turned westward and disappeared from sight. Could have been one object total but was seen 3 times.
