Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Washington, D.C. (driving, 2 hrs S of, N on I-95), VA
Shape: Cigar
Duration:five minutes (?)
cigar-shaped whitish object, hovering (possibly moving slightly, north to south)

I was driving from a friend's house in North Carolina, where I'd spent the weekend, to my home in Arlington, Virginia. As I was moseying northward on I-95, I looked to my left and saw a cigar-shaped object of what seemed to be a whitish tint. The object was bright, but not too bright to look at directly (perhaps a bit brighter than a full moon). The object seemed to be hovering, although it may have been moving slightly from north to south (since I was moving south to north, I can't be sure if this was simply motion relative to my own). Soon, the object was obscured by the trees and I did not see it again; I may have witnessed it for close to two minutes but am not sure.
