Driving South to home on Barracks Road in Charlottesville. Husband spotted UFO and proclaimed "that is not a regular airplane." Looked out window, stopped in road, when I saw it was hovering almost slightly above us. Distance can not be determined - maybe 2500 ft above. It had several bright white lights, some flashing, others remain constant. Intuitively, we sensed that it sensed us and perhaps saw us stop out car in the middle of road, to which it then hovered for at least 10 seconds. Then it continued on a low altitude path. My first instinct was that it is an advance government aircraft and I felt thrilled at witnessing the technology is conveyed to our sight. We turned around and watched it, and I took a quick photo with my camera phone, that unfortunately did not do justice, but shows two bright white lights as it continued on its path away from us. In the picture there are buildings, above one building, you can see the two white lights.
