Reported: 6/21/2010 12:48:39 PM 12:48
Posted: 6/23/2010
Location: Stafford, VA
Shape: Rectangle
Duration: 2:00 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
I SAW A LARGE DARK RECTANGULAR OBJECT IN THE SKY.

IT WAS A SUNNY CLOUDLESS DAY ABOUT 2:30 p.m. I WAS TAKING A SHORTCUT BEHIND A LOCAL SHOPPING CENTER NEAR QUANTICO, VA. I NOTICED 2 MILITARY HELICOPTERS HOVERING SEVERAL HUNDRED FEET ABOVE THE INTERSECTION OF RT. 610 AND ONVILLE RD. ONE OF THE HELICOPTERS WAS SOMEWHAT HIGHER THAN THE OTHER AND OFF TO THE LEFT. ABOVE THEM WAS A VERY LARGE DARK RECTANGULAR OBJECT.

I LOST SIGHT OF THE OBJECT AS I WAS PASSING A SMALL STAND OF TREES. WHEN I PASSED THE TREES I LOOKED UP AND THE OBJECT WAS GONE. THE HELICOPTERS WHERE STILL THERE.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS. LIVING NEAR QUANTICO I THOUGHT I HAD SEEN EVERY AIRCRAFT THERE IS. THIS WAS NOTHING I HAD EVER SEEN.
