A Virginia witness at Bastian reported watching a rectangular-shaped object that descended to about 300 or 400 feet off the ground, according to testimony in Case 82503 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was picking up her 16-year-old daughter from a school function at 8:30 p.m. on March 3, 2017.
“We started back home,” the witness stated. “When we reached the top of the mountain, I noticed a super bright star on my left just above the mountain ahead. We live in the valley between these two mountains. As we descended the first mountain, the object started descending along the side of the opposite mountain. There is only one road over there on that mountain that it was on. And it is a very rough fire track which is locked by the National Forest Service at this time of year.”
When the witness first saw the object, they were at 2,900 feet.
“We descended to about 2,100 feet and it descended along with us until it appeared to be maybe 300 or 400 feet above us. It seemed to almost touch the ground at times. At other times it moved along just ahead of us and would be in the forest because I could see trees outlined in front of it.”
As the witness traveled up the valley along the creek, the object moved along with the vehicle.
