Sighting of a large flying sphere near our nation's capital.

At around 11pm, my friend and I were walking back to campus through a field, we saw a bright light moving in the distance getting bigger by the second as it came closer. When it came within about 50 yards, it became apparent that the light was a spinning sphere of many lights with a metallic surface. It stopped abruptly and hovered for about 10 seconds and sped off again. As it hovered, it emitted an almost inaudible hum that you could feel in the air.

After calming down from our sighting, we called the authorities to report what we had seen but they were not receptive.

After our experience, we found your organization on the Internet and decided to contact you in hopes of confirming our sighting.

Thank you for your time.

((NUFORC Note: Source of report placed placed "Washington" in Pennsylvania. We have corrected it above. We spoke via telephone with the source of this report, and initially suspected that the call might be yet another prank telephone call from an American youth. We may have erred in that initial suspicion, in which case, this may be a serious-minded report. The written report appears to us to be composed in a responsible manner. PD))
