Luray, Virginia, USA; November 17, 2009

Date of Sighting: November 17, 2009

Location of Sighting: Luray, Page county

Shape(s) of UFO(s): cylinder

Color(s) of UFO(s): bright shiny orange as if reflecting sunset

Number of UFO(s): 1

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: unknown

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): did not move

Further Description of Sighting: About 5.05 PM, from the road near Luray Caverns Airport, looking over New Market gap, I saw a cylinder shaped bright shiny object seemingly reflecting the sunset.

Part of the bottom was covered by a cloud but still visible. It was vertical but slightly tilting. A bright light came out of it like a probe and then went back to it.

I did not see the main object move, it just disappeared. I watched for what it seemed like a few minutes. Many years ago at Christams time, in early seventies, I saw very unusual pulsating lights in the same area.

    Hi. We saw the exact same thing, facing the same direction on Nov 16th, probably around the same time (sunset)(was your date correct?). Saw this from Shenandoah National park, and it was a very still motionless glowing object(orange from the sunset), and a bright light (looked like a small star from where we were situated) suddenly appeared off the top of it, and it started moving upward away from the orange object. then the objects were gone. Very interesting.

    On 10/25/9 at 1:41 PM Central Time (2:41 Eastern) per time recorded on my camera, I saw and photographed what appeared to be a probe or large column of light extending from the sky to the ground.  One minute before I photographed a very unusual sky, orange colored.  One minute after I photographed a normal looking blue sky.  I am from out of state.  We had left the Skyline Drive and were between Luary and New Market Virginia.  As soon as we entered New Market, VA, I made a photograph which my camera recorded as beinging 15 minutes later than the column photograph.  As we were traveling around 60 mph we were probably 15 miles more or less from New Market.  This column of light didn’t look look like any beams of sunlight I have ever seen.  I cannot find a place in the comment screen to attach the photographs (the one of the brilliant orange sky and the one of the light column).  I will fill out a report form and attach them to it.  After reading the description “Probe” I decided to post this.  It could have been from the sun.  I’ll post it under reports.  Look at it and please respond as to whether it is the same thing you saw.
