Two Low-flying lighted crafts were sighted at different times on the same night by two witnesses.

My friend and I were driving home from work at about 10:30 at night (she was driving). We were approaching the four-way intersection of rt.9 and rt.287. We both suddenly saw what looked like the headlights of a car in the sky and both exclaimed. There might have been one other car at the intersection but it pulled away before we got there (we had a red light). We stopped and looked at the lights and as they approached and we noticed that there were smaller white lights along the bottom of the craft as well as a slowly pulsing/blinking one on top. All the lights were white.

I opened the car window and hung my torso out and did not hear any noise from the craft at all. The craft was lower than any aircraft I have ever seen and was moving much more slowly than a normal plane.

We were not close enough to Dulles airport for the craft to be attempting to land there. I'm not sure exactly how high the craft was as I am not great with distances but it was certainly above the tree line but significantly lower than normal planes. As the stoplight changed to green, my friend pulled through the intersection and the craft was simultaneously passing over our car. I was still hanging out the window watching the craft and saw the shape of it from below. It had a elongated triangularly-shaped nose that was split directly down the middle and it had a compact body with short wings and no tail. There was no exhaust. My friend and i drove on discussing the sighting.

About 5 or 6 minutes later, we were still driving to my house and were on a non-lined paved road right before the turn onto my dirt road. My friend pointed at the sky and exclaimed that it looked like there was a storm far off in the distance (it looked like there was lightning behind the clouds. The light was slightly glowing and pulsating). At this point I suggested that we stop the car and watch the storm. My friend stopped and a craft that looked exactly like the previous one sighted, (same shape, size, speed, and height, and similar bearing) emerged from the clouds. The pulsing light that was on top of it was what we had thought was the storm behind the clouds. I rolled down the window completely and stuck my whole body out of the car, leaning on the roof and, admittedly, yelled profanities at the craft. This craft did NOT pass directly over our car but passed over about, maybe....25 yards away. My friend and I sat in shocked silence for about a minute and proceeded to my house. She dropped me off and for the rest of the night I was entirely jumpy and kept darting to the windows to see if another craft would appear. The crafts could not plausibly be the same due to time and distance differences.

Neither my friend nor I were intoxicated nor did we have drugs in our system. We are both responsible and trustworthy high school students and while I know that my reveal of our ages can lead to an assumption of untrustworthiness and unreliability, I assure you that every bit of this account is true and unaltered.

The main reason of my posting this report is to seek other people that sighted the craft(s). I would really appreciate other postings that correspond to mine. I urge the creators of this website to look into this sighting as I am very confused as to what the crafts were. If there had only been one craft I might have believed that it was an experimental military craft but the two sightings in one night is too coincidental and astounding to write off as nothing.

Thank you for any time or exertion that may go into the publishing of my sighting.
