|bright diamond shape object in the sky.
I was driving from massanutten, va to grottoes, va. I had just made a right turn onto route 340. when I looked into the sky i noticed what looked like an airplane in flight. The blinking tail light had me thinking that it was an airplane anyway.
As I was driving I glanced up at the sky for a second time and noticed that the same flying oject that was moving to the right was now moving to the left. i slowed down driving to pay a little more attention. the next few seconds when i looked the object was very close and pretty bright. It went from having one blinking tail light to a bright light. It then had another line of light connect and another bright light and the another line and once again a bright light. Totalling three lights in a line all connecting. So strange I thought and stopped my car in the middle of the road. I took a picture of the object with three lights and saved it to my phone. I hit the end button on my phone and was getting ready to hit the gas i saw something incredible. The middle light went out on the object and two other lights turned on. They formed a diamond shape that was a little stretched. They were very bright and close by. They were all connected and under the lights were l! ike dashes of orange lights.
I grabbed my phone to take another picture of the whole object. I held it up to get a good shot. I saw the object in my camera and also when i just looked. As i was taking the picture the object dissappeared. It was like poof, to a cloud of smoke and with one last bright flash it was gone. I then proceeded to drive along 340 looking for it to come back again.
I called my sister and soon after arrived at her house. I told her i wanted to show her the two pictures I took. When i went to my pictures the pictures I took were gone.
