Red, White & Blue lights hovering up and down in the sky

I took our dog for a walk in Richmond, Va shortly after 8PM on 1/8/13. About 8:25PM I noticed a strange object in the sky. It was 3 large dots, like bright stars, red, white and blue. What made me keep watching it was the pattern of the movement which I’ve never seen in the sky before. The 3 lights moved together like a part of something. They would hover in one spot for a few seconds and then would move either up or down extremely fast unlike anything you see in the sky. It continued this pattern of hovering up and down for good 30 seconds. I kept watching it and clearly thinking this must be a UFO. I’ve never seen one before, but heard of others seeing them and honestly didn’t really believe them thinking it may have been some reflection of light or something else that made it seem like it was a UFO, but it wasn’t in reality. I was completely sober and in a very clear state of mind. I’ve never had any visions, hallucinations, etc… The object finally moved up and then down again and it went down below the tree line in the distance. The area it went down seems a bit brighter lit for a few seconds than normal and then nothing else unusual happened. I was paying close attention to anything else abnormal and all I noticed that some dogs were barking. I’m not sure if it was any more than the normal sound of neighborhood dogs barking, but it seemed like more to me at that time. I was also a bit worried that the object seems to go down in the direction where my house is so I wanted to rush home to make sure everything was OK. I remember feeling at first that it was maybe a helicopter the way it moved, but quickly dismissed that as it moved up and down WAY too quickly to be one. I also noticed that there were some planes in the sky with similar size and color lights, but their movement is very different from what I saw. The planes move very slowly in the sky to a human eye and their movement is horizontal where what I saw was vertical and about 100 times the speed you see the planes moving in the sky.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
