A group of Ashburn, VA, witnesses watched and videotaped an "arc of light" that hovered and then "broke into two separate, small bundled formations with a bright light separating the two," according to May 11, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The reporting witness noticed people in his work parking lot already watching the lights.
"I looked and was amazed to see an arch of lights in the sky, obviously flying crafts of some kind," the reporting witness stated. "I first thought they were planes, being that Dulles Airport is about 8 miles away. I asked if anyone had a video camera or phone, as mine was out of batteries. There were two short videos shot, one of them is attached, the other I am waiting to get from someone else that was there."
The video can be played on this page - or from this MUFON link.
The object then broke up into two sections
"I stayed for another 3-4 minutes watching in awe and then the arch broke into two separate, small bundled formations with a bright light separating the two. The lights were white and the center light appeared to be changing colors from redish to white. I watched this for about 5 more minutes and got into my car to go home. One thing that I did notice was that there was no air traffic in the sky."
The reporting witness is a former Marine and speculates that it may have been a military training or helicopters in formation - but was something that he had never seen.
