Location: Goochland County, VA
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:3 minutes
White cylinder with a brighter white light in the center

While driving, I noticed a white cylinder with a white light in the center, equal distance from both ends. It appeared to be sitting motionless in the sky without a sound.

I tried to get my husband to see it but for some reason he could not. Whether it was too high in the sky to see it from the passenger seat or he just really couldn’t see it, I don’t know.

It didn’t seem to be very high from my vantage point. I don’t understand why he could not see it.

It eventually disappeared.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with the party who submitted the report, and she sounded to us to be quite eloquent and sincere. The location of the sighting, she estimates, was intermediate between Charlottesville and Richmond, VA, on Interstate 64. PD))
