Spotted a pulsing light as I was pulling into my driveway and rushed off to grab my camera, a Canon Powershot XS50 capable of 200X zoom. Notice the glide path left to right. Originally the orb was pulsing, which you'll see in the first few seconds of the video. From 1:14 - 1:22 you'll see characteristic orb shaping. My battery went low on my Canon SX50 so I went and grabbed my iGen NV 20/20 night vision (did not set it up to record via my laptop as I was concerned the object would go away) and went behind the house. It went stationary for a few minutes, glided back to the left and then descended out of the horizon. The entire time it is also distancing itself from my position, so the orb is getting smaller. No idea how far away...it was over Pocahontas State Park (Virginia's largest forest habitat). Was able to observe it off and on during a 30 minute period.
