F A S T - Ionized Sphere?

Sighting #1 in North Washington/West Sunbury - PA While at an outdoor party with my wife and 2-kids and 20-plus other people... A cool clear night mid to low 50's (best of my recollection) no wind or clouds. I happened to be facing approx. South and taking the last swallow out of a can of soda (head back looking up). Out of the corner of my eye (right - from the West) a bright light caught my attention. As I turned my head to look, the light was getting bigger (Closer) and in 4 seconds (maybe 3) it covered at least 6-7 miles and flew directly overhead. Since I was close to the top of the highest point in that area it offered a perfect view... The object was (best guess) a 20-30ft sphere-like object, traveling at a LEVEL steady altitude approx. 800-1000ft AGL (my position) and at a bearing of 100 degrees (based on aviation maps). Coming from the Youngstown Ohio area (guess) traveling East. The center or main mass of the sphere-oval was glowing like 'white-lightening' and seem to have a 'electric-blue' corona around it.This object made NO noise, did not stop, change altitude, or bearing while under my observation. The object also seemed distorted (perception of great speed?) The most amazing thing is my wife (X) saw something move real fast out of the corner of her eye but no detail, and NO-ONE else saw it at all! Proof... YOU HAVE TO LOOK UP AT THE RIGHT SECOND! Twenty people didn't see a thing! (See submitted map PA UFO 94-95.gif)
