Size(s) of UFO(s): too far up

Color(s) of UFO(s): blue

Number of UFO(s): 3-4

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: thousands of feet almost straight up

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): cornfields and houses

Further Description of Sighting: I was driving my motorcycle to John Patton’s house in Inwood (It is off I81 about halfway between Martinsburg, W.Virginia and Winchester, Virginia)…..when i first saw these very animated pulsating blue star shapes.

They were maneuvering in close formation at a great distance but staying in pretty much one area of the sky in what looked like almost directly over the cornfield west of John’s house…..they were very high up……

when i got to John’s, he was on the rear balcony, second floor, of his house with 2 or 3 long guns leaning on the balcony railing, i have no idea what he thought he was going to do with a shotgun and a UFO …….clearly he saw them before i did …….

we watched in awe for about twenty to thirty minutes and not too long after 2 jet fighters from the direction of Washington DC (about 110 miles from us) flew over this quiet residential area, about 2 or 3 hundred feet off the ground going very fast and then straight up at the UFOs ……

as they did so, the blue things took off at an angle up and away so fast we were shocked …….it was then that we realized the blue UFOs were actually directly over an ICBM missile silo about a mile away from his house……

this is not that big a secret in so far as everyone in the area knew about it, so i doubt that i’m giving away any state secrets here……I’ve always wondered about this sighting because we never heard about it years later although at the time it was in the local papers and radio and several hundreds of people saw them as well including many police officers from Martinsburg,

the Romney-Gore area on the other side of the mountain and Winchester as well ……the interesting thing was the number of cops and other local authorities that supposedly saw this as well and the phone calls to the police about it all…….

i don’t remember how long the jets hung around oddly but that may be because i’m getting old …….but anyway, that is the story as clearly as i can remember it …….i remember it to! this day because i had quite an advanced knowledge of military aircraft at the time and as soon as i saw these things i knew they were not from here if you know what i mean.

i ran through the house yelling for my family to come outside and we all ran to the front yard. when i looked down the street there were several other neighbors watching the craft ascend. the craft ascended until we could no longer see it even through our binoculars. it made several lateral moves as it ascended.

the night was clear and there were no clouds.

Further Description of Sighting: I was a child with my mother watching the vehicle from windows in the kitchen, dining, and living room. Frustrated, my mother scrambled to find film for her camera while calling police, the airport, and relatives.

After watching this beautiful and interesting object for nearly 10 full minutes – I became bored and went back to watching television. Now I am obsessed with wanting to know what it was that I am sure I saw but that no one believes I saw.

I saw something that was insanely beautiful, quiet, and mind-boggling. I wish I could remember the pattern of colors that it displayed as I do recall that there was in fact a pattern. I called out the colors as they oozed around from the left… BLUUUUUUUUUE, REEEEEEEED, etc. My mother claims that the object, vehicle, probe, whatever – shot away at an incredible speed.

She says that she spotted the object in the sky because our poodle (in the yard at the time) was staring at it intensely. Thank you for your time. Would be willing to undergo hypnosis in order to remember more details about the color patterns or the shape so that I may create a drawing or animated video from those memories. Frustrated because I know these things are out there but in this case, knowledge is not power, it a deep-seeded source of frustration.
