Location: Chesterfield, VA, USA

Shape:


The caller, together with other observers, witnessed a double column of "smoke, or something" going up from ground level. They looked at it for over an hour with binoculars, and in addition to the smoke, they saw a very bright light, which just appeared to hand in the sky. Occasionaly, the light would "explode" to approximately several times its smaller size. "It looks like a perfectly round circle that explodes, then gets smaller. It is very bright."

They have it on video, and they were still looking at it at the time of the call. "It exploded into thousands of pieces. It is a perfect circle, with a thousand lights."
