Occurred : 3/30/1996 21:00 (Entered as : 03/30/96 21:00)
Reported: 12/13/2002 10:02:28 PM 22:02
Posted: 12/23/2002
Location: Throop, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:15-20 seconds
Bright light moving off horizon, jumping upward, stopped then dissapeared.

Rising of the ESE horizon it was a rather bright light, not unlike aircraft landing lights (in illumination). It appeared to be normal, although I called the other witness over to look.

It rose in the sky for about 15 seconds then jumped higher ( the same distance it came off the horizon above it previous position) then stopped for a few seconds. Afterwards the light just disappeared ( from our position looking like it went 'really fast' in the opposite direction we were looking) We both waited and watched for another 15 minutes in case it was an aircraft, and it would just appear again not far from were it was.

Perfectly clear night, no clouds. Never came back...

The other witness was very disturbed.
