A Virginia witness at Manassas reported watching a disc-shaped object hovering over the city, according to testimony in Case 67890 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The event occurred about 8:51 p.m. on May 20, 2015, when the witness was driving home to Manassas along the Prince William Parkway.
“It had rained slightly a little but had pretty much stopped,” the witness stated. “There were some light, thin clouds out but nothing heavy. The traffic was very light. As I approached the city I noticed two or three airplanes traveling from the west toward the northeast probably to Dulles airport some distance away. It was easy to see them as it was dusk out and the sun had almost gone down but it was not dark yet. I noticed the moon rising to my left from the tree line and also the North Star above the moon popped out.”
Then the witness noticed a “glinting motion” in the sky moving back and forth from the northeast to the northwest.
