National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 10/8/2015 21:30 (Entered as : 10/08/15 21:30)
Reported: 10/9/2015 9:47:17 AM 09:47
Posted: 10/9/2015
Location: Stafford, VA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 60 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Large, white, unmoving object above tree line.

Noticed a large, solid, white light above the tree line; larger than a star and obviously a solid light. No red or green wing lights to indicate aircraft. Object stayed in place, was not moving.

I called my husband to observe and confirm aircraft (he's a pilot, said it was not any aircraft he's ever seen) as we watched, it disappeared and did not return.

The whole scenario lasted approximately 60 seconds from start to finish and I have been scrolling the news to see if there was any explanation for the occurrence.

Have never seen anything like it and I will probably not be stargazing again for a while.
