Location: Virginia Beach, VA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-5 minutes
Glowing fireball type orb with a tail of some sort, with strange movements, and then unimaginable speed to disapear.

My dad was driving in our truck and I was in the passanger seat. We were stopped at a left turn signal on Indian River Rd. While we were waiting for the light to change out of the corner of my eye I saw a bright circular object, at first i thought it was the full moon, but it was not the moon. I looked at the object and I was glowing bright white to orange to redish colors, almost as if it was on fire. There was also a tail somewhat like a comet's tail coming of of the back of it. The way this object moved though could not have been a comet, or a rocket. My dad was watching it as well once I pointed it out to him. He is a high level navy Senior Cheif and now works in a control tower for a nearby base. The object sometimes just floated, there seemed to be no sound whatsoever, and then it would make complex movements left to right, diagnoly, straight down, up, any way it wanted. This lasted about 2 minutes.

I looked at the car in front of us and noticed the couple in the car were also pointing to the object in the sky. Soon after the object made some more maneuvers. Then as if having the ability to accelerate to what I believe to be the speed of light, the orb, craft, object whatever it may have been. Shot off at an amazing speed and in a matter of 1-2 seconds completely disapeared.

This image has stuck in my head ever since and I dont think I will ever get an explanation for what we saw that night. My father contacted Langley to see if any launches were scheduled for that day and there was nothing.

My father works with many top officials now that he is retired and now a civilian working on base in the control tower. He knows what we saw that night was nothing at least in military arsenal that has been released.

This area has seen many sighting since then... Including the lights and explosion seen and felt over va / nc in the last couple months or so.
