Further Description of Sighting: Last night around 8pm I spotted the mysterious cone shaped light that aparantly hundreds of others have reported.

Since the siteing I’ve been determinded to fingure out what this oject was.

After some research I discovered that a rocket was launched in VA at 7:30pm. The name of the launch is “Black Brant XI 39.009”

The fire coming out of the rocket engine would account for the bright inverted V light, the “mist” was likely just the smoke from the engine and it slowly faded when the rocket engine burned out. I rocket leaving the atmosphere would easily be seen by multiple states.

To confirm this just google the launch name and you will see for youself.

To bad This was a very exciting experience 😦
