Location: Dickensonville, VA
|The object appeared to be changing from a round to an oblong shape in a more or less regular manner. Color was oscillating between red and white, like it was rotating.
The object was first sighted in the western sky at about 19:45 when a neighbor called and alerted me to its presence. He said he had first spotted it about 30 minutes earlier while driving. My wife and I observed it for about 5 minutes, and it disappeared suddenly. It reappeared just as suddenly about 5 minutes later and appeared to be larger, and better defined. I watched it for about 15 more minutes when it disappeared at 20:15.
((NUFORC Note: We suspect the individual was observing Venus. PD))
