Location: Andrews AFB, MD
Shape: Oval
Duration:Not sure
Sphere over Andrews Airforce base spotted by witnesses and NORAD Radar Thursday night, fighters scrambled.

Evidently, one or more red/orange changing to blue ovals were seen over Andrews Airforce base last night.

Their existence was first indicated on radio station, WTOP because several listeners called in confirming the sighting.

NORAD spotted a sphere and fighters were scrambled to the sight over Andrews Airforce Base....Sphere or oval had disappeared.

Fox and MSNBC reported the sighting in a tongue in cheek manner Friday afternoon. Didn't see it myself...but thought it was interesting because the sighting was reported on national TV.

Thought you guys might want to get more detail from radio station and other official sources....

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the event had occurred on the evening of July 26th, 2002. We believe she alludes to the event that had occurred just after midnight, on the morning of that date. We have amended the date above. PD))
