Location of Sighting: Winchester, Virginia
Date of Sighting: August 31, 2016
Time of Sighting: 9 to 9:30 PM EDT
Description: A woman and her neighbor saw a star-like object swing like it was at end of the string. The object was yellow, but flashed red and green. The object had been seen on the previous night. However, the witness and her neighbor had never seen the object before the previous night (Aug 30, 2016) and both have lived in the area for several years. The area is quite dark and devoid of city light “pollution.” The object was visible for about 30 minutes. It would move back and forth like it was at the end of a string. The object then got bright, disappeared and re-appeared in another one-half across the sky 10 minutes later. The object seemed to move away from aircraft flying over the area. Skies were clear at the time of the sighting. The area is mountainous and remote.
