|Unusuall objects in the sky over Blacksburg, VA
On Friday, September 27, 2019 at approximately 8:40pm in Blacksburg, Virginia, I was outside walking my dog on the trail and as usual, looking up into the sky to see what I could see. My first thoughts of the night were who exactly gets to occupy which altitudes in the sky? Because I noticed several aircraft in the air that evening, some at extremely high altitudes and others seemingly occupying various other levels of the atmosphere.
One aircraft in particular, that I presume to be of the private variety local to the Virginia Tech airport was flying in unusual patterns with a green, white and red light on it. I had taken the time to watch it carefully because it appeared to be unusual compared to the other aircraft I am accustomed to seeing in the air at night.
Considering I observe a lot of aircraft in the sky, it’s a regular occurrence here in Blacksburg, this particular aircraft was behaving in a way that made me consider the possibility some kind of driver’s education, behind the wheel class was going on? A minute or so would pass as I continued walking down the path and I looked up into the sky again to see the most amazing things.
There were three objects in the sky, one at the 11, 12 and 2 o’clock positions and they appear to be on fire. They were clustered together, seemingly moving independent of one another but the object at the 2 o’clock position moved around freely, very firefly, serpentine like and appeared to change altitudes and directions efficiently.
There was a rocket booster looking affect to the objects, but they were clearly emitting some kind of flame.
Unfortunately, I did not have my camera with me but I did sprint in vein in an attempt to get one. By that point, the objects were gone. The airplane I saw moving erratically in the sky no doubt was observing this same behavior and there was an uptick in traffic in my area immediately following the event, so I would have to think it was witnessed by more than just myself on ground level.
