|Fast and silent, bright and bewildering
The object appeared in the west as a sudden ball of growing orange light. Suddenly the orange light flashed yellow and a craft appeared in its place. the object proceeded to the west and changed course to the south sharply and had no sound. The object was less than a half of a mile away and was only about 1500ft overhead. Having served in the United States Navy of a period of years in Virginia and being exposed to many military aircraft, as well as having many years of experience as a amature astronomer, I had never witnessed any thing such as this. I was quick enough to grab my friend's cell phone and recorded 37 seconds of video. I have watched the clip over and over, converting the file into different formats and I do not know what to think of it. I have included and original copy of the .3gp for your use.
