Shape: Circle
Duration:6 seconds
I spent many hours looking at stars as preparation for navigation with a sailboat using a sextant

I was laying on my on my back at about 11:00 in the evening studying stars for navigational purposes. I observed a round disk coming from the Washington DC area with what looked like small wires on the perifery as it rotated. It took a 90 degree left turn and proceeded down the Shenandoah Valley, The total time was about 6 seconds. I inhaled and waited for an explosion due to the speed involved. There never was a sound. I have 1600 hours flying and never have seen anything like it.In August or Sept.of that year, Popular Mechanics or Science featured a craft like it on its cover.
