Circular UFO over Interstate 81 in Shenandoah Valley Virginia

I was driving north on I-81 and it was a very clear day. I was on my way back from my best friends Marine Corps ITB graduation, in North Carolina.

I looked out to the left of the road into a valley between two mountains. I saw what I thought was the top of a water tower. A round almost spherical shape sitting at the height that a water tower would be.

Then I realized that there were no legs under the top of the water tower, which would mean it was hovering.

I told my buddy sitting next to me in the passenger seat and he saw it and thought it was just as out of place as I did. It was a jaw dropping sight to say the least, I almost crashed the car a couple of times.

After observing this thing for a little, we drove around a bend that had some trees and lost our visual on the UFO. When we exited the bend and the trees were gone, the UFO was gone as well.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting in March 2012 is approximate. PD))
