Shape: Teardrop
Duration:4-5 minutes
Small black object moving through woods.

I went out to George Washington State Park at about 12:30pm to walk my dog through some trails and I had been walking for about 10 minutes when my dog came to a dead stop and dug his paws into the ground growling and showing his teeth. He was looking off into the woods to our right so I stopped in shock to try and see what he was so worked up over. I had to stare almost 2 minutes before I saw it. It was a black teardrop shaped thing weaving out from behind a tree and it seemed like it would look at us and go back behind the tree. I was scared as hell but very curious and being that I had my dog with me for protection I decided to move towards it. My dog wanted to pursue it by this point also so we began stepping off the trail and walking towards it. We had walked maybe 15 feet and it flew out from behind the tree and began moving away from us at a slow speed. I tried to keep up with it but even running it moved just a little bit faster than us. I saw no marks on it, no other parts just a black teardrop shape. Finaly it rose up between some pines after chasing it for about 3 minutes and from what I could see through the tree branches, it took off in a vertical climb faster than Ive ever seen anything move in my life. I just went straight up till I couldnt see it anymore. I was scared and decided to get the hell out of there after seeing it do that. I dont know what I saw today, but believe me when I tell you it frightened me. I never heard a noise either and come to think of it, it never seemed to hit a tree branch or bush or anything. It definetly knew how to fly well whatever it was. My best description of what it was made out of would be like describing the black glass that you see over a security camera in a casino or something. Very black and reflective. Other than that, I saw nothing else and didnt get close enough for any other details. It was about the size Id say of maybe two basketballs together.
