Location: Newport News, VA
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 3 seconds
I was on lunch break on second shift at Newport news shipyard, we were sitting on the river's edge facing south west. I looked over my left shoulder and up, and spotted what looked like a very large fast moving cigar shaped craft, dark grey in color. It moved so fast that it was gone before I could alert my companions to look in that direction. In size comparison to the Nimitz class aircraft carrier in drydock that it flew over, it was just as big. It was going in an easterly direction, zipping in and out of cloud cover. Too fast to be a blimp. I will never forget!
