The witness was walking home in northwest D.C. at 11 a.m. on October 2, 2016, when the object was noticed in the sky.
“I noticed a strange object hovering in the sky, about 30-40 feet up, across the street from me, maybe a total distance of 60-70 feet between myself and the object,” the witness stated.“The object was unlike anything I’ve ever seen.”

The witness described the object.
“It was a dark, worm-like shape and it hovered in the same position for roughly three minutes while I was able to take photos. At first I thought it could have been an unusual entanglement of those narrow balloons used to make balloon animals, however, I don’t believe they could have floated in this position with helium. The object moved only slightly, despite a breeze which would have greatly moved even an anchored balloon. No wire, ribbon or any kind of string was present.”

The witness quickly lost sight of the object.
“As I ran around the corner to try and get right underneath it, I could not find it.”
