Location: Alexandria, VA
Shape: Sphere
Duration: 14 seconds
Object was circular in shape and dark as it appeared from my P.O.V. (about a couple miles away). It dropped vertical and made a 90 *

Walking through a farmer's market stationed in the Kingstowne Towne Center's lot, I find myself looking up at the bright blue sky at a small silhouette of what I thought was an aircraft flying towards my direction. Facing south/east, I noticed a small, dark "dot" in front of a white cloud, and I tried focusing on it; suddenly it dropped down vertically, at a high rate (but controlled) speed, than it made a right angle turn to the right and faded away. I observed this stationaried object for about 10 seconds, the vertical drop and 90 degrees turn took about 4 seconds. Temperature was 78 degrees.
