Location: Mt. Morris, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
9:25pm, noticed a small light high in the sky. The light did not blink and traveled at a high speed. A second high speed light followed but on a little different direction. Both lights made no sound. I believe these lights could've been seen from other states due to the height of the moving lights.

On 7/12/98 at around 10:25pm I went out back to enjoy the clear night sky and watch an occasional aircraft fly overhead. This is something I often do. I'm 39 years old and paraylized from a recreational accident 9 years ago. I use a Permobil wheel chair that allows me to do weight shifts by reclinging and tilting the seat back to about a 60 degree angle, perfect for watching the night sky. This particular night was great just after dark. The sky was clear. I turned off all back of the house lights including the kitchen light that casted a light onto the patio. I was in the recline/tilt position for about 10 minutes and was watching two commercial jets pass through the nite sky. Then I noticed a small non-blinking light (10x smaller than the jet lights)traveling at a high rate of speed from overhead north to south. I couldn't believe it. I was coonvinced I saw something unusual and wished it lasted longer. Then another non-blinking light appeared after the otherone disappeared. It's path was a little different than the first light but very similar. Both lights made no noise. If the jets were flying at 30,000 feet (5-6 miles high) the lights I saw appeared to be 100 mile high or higher. I've never reported anything or have seen anything like this. Please let me know if anyone else saw what I saw.
