Description: My husband and I were on Route 7 on the way to Leesburg, VA following a friend to his home. We were driving a 1970 VW bus and my husband was driving. I was in the front passenger seat and we were discussing some programs we had seen on TV about UFO's. I looked to the rear left window behind the driver's seat and said look there is a water tower I bet some people think that is a UFO when it starts to get dark like it was then.
I looked back again and I said oh my God it's moving it was moving at a fast speed and was now about 400-600 ft in the sky above us but more ahead of us. We had the windows down and we heard no sound at all. I held the steering wheel for my husband as he looked at it and still no sound this lasted about 2 minutes while we were driving.
We saw some white/reddish lights on the UFO near the middle of the UFO. All of a sudden it shot across the sky at a high rate of speed no sound at all and then we saw some other smaller lights not sure what they were on the horizon. We never called and reported it and only told our friend who we were following to Leesburg who said he didn't see anything. He was by himself in his car so I think he just had his eyes of the road ahead.
It was fascinating as it happened and I'll never forget it and we both know that it wasn't any type of aircraft that could have hovered high above us with no sound whatsoever and then take off at that high rate of speed.
