A Fairfax, VA, witness reported watching a "square object" with lights moving overhead about midnight on February 7, 2014, according to testimony in Case 53958 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was outside with friends when the object was first seen.
"The object had one orange light on each corner that were very bright but not blinking," the witness stated. "In between each orange light was a white light. The white lights were blinking, but not as bright as the orange lights."
The witness thought that the object moved oddly.
"The really strange thing was that one of the flat sides was pointing forward, not a corner."
The witness provided one illustration of the object that can be seen on this page - or download the original from the case file here.
