Location: Westline, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour
I was sitting with my friend at Red Bank where the bridge was at the Allegheny Resoivor. We had been fishing and saw a light cross the sky from west to east. What made this light interesting was that it stopped about four times as it made an arc across the sky. That meant it wasn't a sattelite or a plane. It was very high up but it was a moonless night. We watched it for at least an hour. I remember it was a Sunday night. We usually traveled from our hunting camp back to Pittsburgh Sundays but we stayed this evening and left early Monday morning. As we were driving back we listened to KDKA and at six thirty a report came on that a Ufo had crashed in a lake in eastern Pa. We listened intently. The seven oclock radio news said that people had witnessed the Ufo crash but they nevr named the town or vicinity. Then at seven thirty the KDKA news said that the National Gurad and army had surrounded and closed the area. That was the last we ever heard of it! There was nothing in the newspaper. Our light in the sky had been traveling west to east.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. We are not aware of any crash in 1974, although one may have occurred and we are not aware of it. PD))
