Sighting Report
Occurred : 10/20/2003 01:30 (Entered as : 10/20/2003)
Reported: 10/20/2003 12:00:32 AM 00:00
Posted: 10/31/2003
Location: Mercersburg, PA
Duration:1hr and still going
Object hovering at top of mountain rising slowly but steady up and to the right. The object has a bright white light that stays on all the time. There are also red and blue lights which are flashing with varying intensities. The object is moving ever so slowly but is moving. This is not a planet or star. It is definitely some type of craft. By our compass the object is southeast of us. It is fairly distant and still appears quite large. The array of lights seem to be ever changing except the white light. We have viewed it with the naked eye and binoculars and neither appears like a normal object. My best description would be that this appears to be a cluster of flashing lights. It is now 2:48 and we have been observing this object since 1:30. It is still rising and appears to be moving south. We will be watching your web site to see if any one else has observed this object. It is following relatively the same path that Mars followed this summer but it ain't Mars! We withhold our names only because we live in a very rural area where we would definitely be hauled off to the funny farm. We would however discuss this with any other viewers or intelligent beings.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect a "twinkling" star may have been the cause of the sighting. PD))
