I was driving southbound on i-288 in chesterfield county, va at approximately 6:45am-7am on tuesday, november 8th, 2016. the sky was clear and the sun had just come up over the horizon. i was looking at the sky watching about 5 airplanes moving across the sky, mainly north to south and south to north, all leaving contrails. suddenly i noticed a bright silver spherical object that was stationary that seemed to be at about the same altitude as the other airplanes, maybe a few thousand feet higher. it had no contrail. about 3 seconds after i first saw it, it dimmed, then brightened, then moved slightly left, then abruptly to the right at an incredible speed for 1-2 seconds. it then stopped for 1-2 seconds, brightened again, then moved straight up at a very high rate of speed for 2-3 seconds before completely disappearing. i did not see it again after that. i have been very interested in aviation for almost my entire life, and love watching them. in my 34 years of life, i have never seen anything like what i saw that day. i never saw any object move as fast or make the abrupt turns that this object did. i was absolutely stunned and amazed at what i saw. i tend to be fairly skeptical about anything abnormal i see or experience, and i look for known explanations before anything else. this was the one time i could not explain what i saw. unfortunately, i did not get any video or photographs of the event. if needed, i could possibly sketch what i saw.
