Location: Sutton, WV
Shape: Circle
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
A large glowing circle sunk from the sky slowly and then shot off.

We were driving North on I79 toward Clarksburg, when the incident occurred we were about 1 mile from the Summersville/ Rt 19 exit. We observed a large circle shaped object sink down from the sky for 4 of the 5 seconds that the sighting lasted.

After sinking slowly for 4 seconds it shot off rapidly to the left, horizontally and disappeared. In comparison it looked as though the object was 1/2 the size of the moon.

The center of the object was dark and around the edge was a glowing white light.
