Posted: 3/4/2022
Location: , VA
Shape: Light
Duration: Around 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Saw an orange light descend into a neighborhood

I filed another report on the same light that I saw in Cumberland Virginia on the 14th, this was the exact same light but larger since I was closer, and in a different county. I had been in the field in Cumberland again, this time actively looking for the UFO, but saw nothing. Once it started to rain, I packed it in and went to drive home. Once I was pretty close to home, driving on Anderson highway in Powhatan, I saw the same orange light hovering over a neighborhood right next to the highway. I only saw it for a few seconds as I was driving by, but I saw it long enough to watch it descend into the neighborhood. I quickly turned around and entered to see if I could see it again, but couldn't. In both this report and my other report, I do not check the "The object landed" box, since I saw it descend below the tree line both times, but I have no actual proof that it landed.

It's also worth mentioning, I think, that somebody online also posted a picture taken from Amherst Virginia a few days later of the exact same light. Amherst is only about an hour away from the locations where I sighted this light.
