Duration: 20 minutes
No of observers: 1

Location: Chantilly, VA, USA

Shape: Disk
Characteristics: Lights on object

Disk shaped light (red, yellow, green looked like a ladder coming out the back.

Live near Dulles Airport, looked out my window (I can see planes as they climb). No planes were taking off but as I checked each side of the house I saw (looked disk shaped) with colored lights and what looked like a ladder hanging off it. I saw four closer to the ground and two above the clouds. Thinking that this could be one of ours, and not trusting myself, I went out on my patio deck, that is where two came very close together (my perception of space) then about a few seconds later, one just shot off and up and disappeared. Still no planes at Dulles, I don't know if they were Black Hawks, weather balloons, needlessly to say, I did not sleep well and the pictures I took with my cell phone did not pick them up. I have a flip phone! So I sent the dark photos to my daughter and she zoomed in with her phone and caught the something in the sky!
