  "description":"Second sighting of oval/disk metallic objectSighting Report Thursday, March 8, 2007  On smoke break facing southeast on Rockville Pike I again saw a disk/oval shaped craft flying in a southeast direction.  It was about the height on my sixth floor of my office building.  This was the second sighting of this same object that I saw in January 2007.  Once again, it was oval/disk shaped highly polished silver on one half and highly polished cherry red color on the other half.  It again, tumbled occassionaly and I was able to see the bright reflection of the 2 halves.A man who works on the 7th floor was outside and I called to him to come here, hurry.  He came over to me quickly and I pointed to the object in the sky and said, what is that?  He looked and said Oh my goodness what is it?  Is it a ufo?  I said it probably is maybe a probe or some type of spying device.  It made no sound and quickly flew out of our sight.  As an aside, when I drove to work that morning, around 7:55 I saw 2 helicopters flying north following Route 355 in Rockville.",
