Green, glowing ball not quite the size of a full moon, silent, fast, sighting lasted a couple of seconds. The object passed directly over my head.

This ball was green, almost flourescent, and was white to silver in the center. It was silent. Not a sound. The thing that surprised me is that it flew across air traffic. I thought it was going to hit something. I work second shift as a help desk analyst in Langhorne, PA, which is between three airports, Philadelphia, North Philadelphia and Mercer Airport in Trenton. Air traffic was a little heavier than usual that night because the weather was clear. There were a lot of light planes in the air. I was on break and standing outside the building with another analyst. I said, "Whoa, did you see that?" She didn't see it. She was looking at the ground, and by time I finished my question, and she looked up, it was gone. This object seemed to come from the northeast (from the Trenton area) toward Philadelphia, south-southeast. It was somewhere between 9-10 PM. I don't remember looking at my watch but it was dark out. Two weeks later, while listening to the Art Bell show, a man called in who happened to mention that he observed the same object, at the same time, on the same date, in Philadelphia. By the way, none of the criteria below apply to what I saw, unless you consider the glow to be an aura or haze. I have reported this to Linda Moulton Howe. I would like to know if anyone else saw this object.
