Virginia witness photographs hovering orb

Roger Marsh

A Virginia witness at Gladstone reported watching and photographing two orb-like objects hovering nearby at 8 p.m. on May 5, 2023, according to testimony from the National UFO Reporting Center (NUFORC).

Two orbs were noticed just after sunset hovering above the James River.

“One had white light and was donut shaped within a circle spinning counterclockwise and then clockwise and moving back and forth in place,” the reporting witness stated. “The other object was further away with colored lights and was moving in a tumbling motion.”

The witness observed the objects for between 30 minutes to an hour and reported that the sky was somewhat lit just after sunset.

“They were visible to the eye and pictures and video show detail.”
