Description: Hi, I am Tom in Culpeper County,Virginia. I found your web site after googling "lights, sky Luray,VA,." So I'm outside with the dogs at 10:30 PM and noticed this unusual light. Now we live out in the country with a nice, dark sky with a great view of the blue ridge about 17 miles away with no or little light pollution. This light seemed to be moving slightly. I was moving up and down, side to side. It was almost quivering. I spent about 10 minutes trying to determine what it was, but with my 50 year old eyes I couldn't tell. So I got my 21 year old son and my zoom binoculars and with them realized that it was actually 3 lights. So I got my 24 year old daughter out of bed and she came out with her 10X optical/40X digital zoom camera and started taking pictures and movies. Now the weird thing, we are in the flight path for Dulles Airport and planes go by frequently. So a plane enters from the distance and this light goes out. It was gone! Four or five minutes later, after the plane is gone, it pops back on. It's back! It was just as if somebody turned the light switch off. This happened 4 times! All of us also saw tiny lights that seemed to come out of this main light, fly away and return to it. It was still visible an hour later when we quit watching.

Note: The photo and enlargement clearly shows the three lights. The apparent "intelligent behavior" exhibited by these lights is quite compelling. It would be interesting to know what the pilots of the aircraft saw? The top photo appears to be the original as output from the camera and has not been edited. The second graphic is an enlargement of the photo prepared by the witness. The photo was taken with a Canon PowerShot SX120 IS digital camera. This is a high resolution camera with a maximum resolution of 10 megapixels.
