See also

A Virginia witness reports watching a "light blue oval sphere" that moved overhead with a trail of light behind it on December 15, 2011, while conducting a work related meeting outside, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

"Out of the corner of my eye to my left I see a beautiful light blue sphere, like a crystal ball, descending but very close to be traveling horizontally," the witness stated. "It was traveling south to north. It was a beautiful color blue, vivid, and a light blue tail followed behind it that looked like a blur of the sphere; tail was part of a glow that followed behind it same distance as it moved across the sky."

The witness commented on the object's size and other details.

"There was the sphere that looked to be about 25 feet across and the trail of light had a length of about 250 feet. It was silent, traveled very, very fast. Lost view of it atop the tree line. Big, beautiful crystal ball - slightly transparent."

No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on December 15, 2011. No town name was mentioned in the public portion of the report. The above quotes were edited for clarity.

Virginia is a current UFO ALERT 4 rating,
with a higher than average number of UFO sightings nationally. Virginia had 13 reports in November, the 15th highest reporting state - while California had 72 reports in November 2011 - the highest reporting state in the nation.

The above case links are the unedited and as yet uninvestigated reports filed with MUFON. Please keep in mind that most UFO reports can be explained as something natural or manmade. If California MUFON investigates and reports back on these cases, I will release an update. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

VA, December 15, 2011 - Beautiful light blue oval sphere overhead decending with small trail of light behind it as it traveled. MUFON Case 34030.

Standing outside with three others near a pond conducting a quick work related meeting. Out of the corner of my eye to my left I see a beautiful light blue sphere, like a crystal ball, descending but very close to be traveling horizontally. It was traveling south to north. It was a beautiful color blue, vivid, and a light blue tail followed behind it that looked like a blur of the sphere, tail was part of a glow that followed behind it same distance as it moved across the sky. There was the sphere that looked to be about 25' across and the trail of light had a length of about 250 feet. It was silent, traveled very, very fast. Lost view of it atop the tree line. Big, beautiful crystal ball slightly transparent. Unforgettable, awesome, and impressive. It was witnessed by myself and one other co-worker facing that direction.
