My Daughter and I were outside about 16:30 9/15/21 examining a large spider that had spun a big web, high on the eves of our house. As we walked further around to the front of the yard examining it, she exclaimed "Dad, what's that light?" I looked up into the sky and saw what I thought was Venus at first. I even told her "Oh, that's just Venus!" I looked away at her ready to explain how I had been watching Venus rises in that part of our sky. Then she said "Yeah, but its moving.." I returned my gaze up to the object which at first glance looked like a celestial body. If it had been still in the sky, I would have thought it a large star or planet type of heavenly body.

She was correct! It sure was moving. Slowly across the sky, horizontally over the Norfolk Airport area. Form our view it was first moving from the south to the north, north east. As it traveled, it seemed to intensify in its luminosity as we watched it go across the sky(it never dropped in altitude, was defiantly not a flare), like a bright LED bulb but with no glare. Just a ball of illumination. The light was (Star like) is the best I can describe. Nothing I've seen in a craft before.

An aircraft of some kind was flying high, and circling around in front of, the forward flightpath of the UAP. My daughter exclaimed "I don't like what that helicopters doing" I said :You think its chasing it??" She said "Yeah! Look!" The UAP then stopped its northerly course and went directly east, quickly fading out into the distance. We noticed after it was gone a few other high altitude aircraft in the vicinity of the event.
