Incident occurred during the partial eclipse here in dc, toward the end and just before the clouds rolled in. a friend and i had been watching the eclipse in rock creek park i (naked eye) spotted a small, circular, bright white object in the sky that looked like it could be a planet, but i've seen these or similar objects before in dc and knew i was seeing the same phenomenon again. the object appeared at first to be hovering, but eventually i realized it was moving slowly westward. fortunately i had my binoculars with me. with my binoculars i see the object, a brilliant white sphere, clearly emit a smaller, highly luminescent object, but that light appeared to then re-enter the white sphere. thirty seconds to a minute later the sphere emitted another tiny, glowing light/object, and that one too appeared to re-enter the white sphere. approximately a minute later, while i was looking through the binoculars, the sphere abruptly shrank down to a tiny point of light similar to the small objects emitted earlier (my friend observing naked-eye had thought it completely disappeared), and there appeared to be ghostly concentric circles (at least two) barely visible around the point of light. the entire structure including the translucent circles was larger than the original size of the white sphere- perhaps 3-4 times the diameter. less than 30 seconds later, the object was covered by the incoming storm clouds and we didn't see it again. this was a very exciting experience for both of us!
