A Virginia truck driver reports a disc or cigar-shaped object moving fast "just above tree tops" while southbound along Route 220 near Martinsville, according to August 20, 2011, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The object flew from right to left over Highway 220 at a fast rate of speed and was gone in just a few seconds. "Twenty feet long, six feet fall - disk or cigar - fast," the witness stated.
The witness believes the object was not a jet because of the sound it would have emitted - but in this case the object made no sound.
Martinsville is an independent city surrounded by Henry County, VA, population 13,821. No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on August 20, 2011. The event occurred on August 18, 2011.
