Craft had cone nose which was dark in color, body was plain silver/metal. No noticeable features along body (No windows, etc). the "cylinder" section of the body is estimated to have a diameter similar to an H2 (Hummer) from side to side (Door to Door). Tail had 3 lights, 2 red, 1 white, blinking, not in sync. No wings visible.

Lights seemed mounted to propulsion mechanism (ie, not tail fins) but the view was distorted by the lights.

The craft moved with traffic towards mechanicsville, estimated 60 miles an hour, hovering just above tree level (est 30-40 ft). The craft was spotted near the Hayne's Boat company (which has lots of lighting) making the body of the craft quite visible. The craft emitted no sound.
