Reported: 1/6/1999 03:42
Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Centreville, VA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:night
It was short and brief..it was a sphere I saw and what got me the most was the color...it was like an electric blue colored sphere. There one minute, clear as anything... then gone the next right in front of my view. It was about 300 ft. away but I'm guessing... I remember it was close.

It was about 11:30 at night,around there...and two of my friends and I were in this little gazebo just talking and hanging out. I remember my friend was sitting next to me and she was looking at my other friend sitting across from she and I...I had briefly looked up in front of me before turning to her and that's when I saw this sphere like shape ap in the sky. It wasn't too far away but it was close enough for me to see that it was an electric blue color- that color I can't forget cause it was bright for that one brief minute and then it was gone...At first I thought maybe it was a meteorite,and I'm not ruling that out, but it was slightly bigger than what I've seen when we've had meteorite showers around here...
