4 See 2 Bright Lights Chasing Each Other in Circular Motion in Night Sky

Hampton is in Southeastern Virginia Near the North Carolina Border.
Hampton is in Southeastern Virginia Near the North Carolina Border.

Date of Sighting: March 22, 2010
Time of Sighting: 8 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Hampton, Virginia (See Map)

Description: Above heavy cloud cover four of us witnessed two bright white lights chasing each other in a large circular motion. Sometimes they would merge into one. When they merged they would still continue in a circular motion. Through the clouds there was no way to know if it was one object with lights going around it or if it was two objects. The circle was approximately 100 yards in diameter. We observed these lights for over a half an hour.

Note: A check of weather from nearby Newport News, Virginia shows that a few clouds were observed with bases at 8,000 feet. It is unusual for a sighting of this type to last 30 minutes. Sometimes effects like this can be due to beaming and reflection of ground based lights.

Comments Received April 12, 2010: The lights you describe sound like "search" lights - often used by car lots and the like for advertising. The fact it was reported cloudy makes this seem more so, as the clouds would reflect the lights. Those types of lights generally move in a circular pattern, eventually coming together as "one" - then back to a circular pattern. You may want to check to see if any location was using that type of light that night. This is just a thought.

UFOS Northwest Response to Above Comment: The commenter may be right about the causation of the above sighting. We have received reports in the past of ground lights reflecting off of clouds resulting in UFO reports.
