small mystery object over Wal-Mart

On my way back into Richmond from the Blue Grass Army Depot, a friend and I saw a strange object floating across the Eastern By-pass, from the K-Mart side over to a position above Wal-Mart's parking lot.

At first we thought the object was a kite, because of its erratic path, but then it would often straighten up and move in a very deliberate direction, like a manned object.

I used my digital camera as a binoculars by looking through the zoom lens at maximum range, and after close inspection I clearly saw something moving on the side of the object facing me. To me, depending on the size perspective, it seemed to be either a small craft reminiscent of the old Apollo Lunar Landers, or it was something like an Autogyro, the old "flying chair" device that's been used in military recon missions for decades. If it was the latter, the movement I saw on it could have been the person operating it.

The object was seen by a great many people in the parking lot and by persons on the Eastern By-Pass. UFOs are very commonplace in the vicinity of the Blue Grass Army Depot and I wasn't surprised when the event did not make the local news.
