Location: Hillsville, VA, USA

Shape: Circle

Circling orange dots

The two objects were about ten miles away, midway in the sky, and were a dull orange, but were shining. The one higher up was steady in movement, while the one below was shaky.

They then began to spin around each other in a circle for a few seconds or so, then the higher one disappeared.

Shortly after, about fifteen seconds, they other one steadily disappeared. They were roughly the size of Mercury if seen in the night sky.


Witness elects to provide no contact information. We have amended the time above to reflect an evening sighting, which we assume. We have no way of contacting the witness to confirm that fact, however. PD
