Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Shape: Cylinder
Looking into the telescope, I was shocked to see that it wasn't a star, but a glowing cylindrical object.

While looking at the night sky, I noticed that one of the "stars" was moving around.

I watched the star move vertically, horizontally, diagonally, in squiggle-y at very high rates of speed. I broke out my telescope, and once I had the object sighted, I was shocked to see that the object was not a star, but rather a glowing, neon-green cylindrical shape - it was almost worm-like. It continued to move sporadically, and was difficult to keep up with using the telescope, but each time I got it sighted again, it appeared exactly the same - glowing, neon-green and cylindrical.

My wife, my son and I observed the object both with the naked eye and using the telescope as it continued move in this manner for over an hour and a half, so's still out there.

((NUFORC Note: Witness describes self as having a considerable degree of technical training. However, given that the event apparently lasted over a lengthy period of time, we feel that the first possibility to be ruled out would be a celestial body, either a star or planet. PD))
