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.
