I personally witnessed this sighting while hitchhiking back home while in the Navy.

It was a clear night while walking within 4 miles from my parents home outside Davisdville, PA.

I saw what appeared to be a bright light between me and a hill side some 1/4 mile away. I thought the light was a glare at first, allowing it to move past my vision, but quickly followed it some 3/4 mile North and parallel with the hill and road I was on (Route 403 between Davisville and Tire Hill.

The light appeared to follow the elevation of the ground uniformly, some 30 feet of so off the ground. What proved to me that it wasn't a glare or something explainable, is that it made a "U" turn slightly disappearing into a valley area, so it was very distinct in it's travel pattern.

The light "flew" back past me now heading back South (again about 2/3 the distance to the hill), and traveled up over another hill into Davidsville, but at that point seemed to fly a higher trajectory, because I could see it partially in sight and then out of sight as it undulated South and from its original trajectory.

It then appeared to turn West towards Thomas Mills, where I then lost sight of it.

I then kept walking South on Route 403, and about 200 feet from where I first say the sighting, staring off towards Thomas Mills way, I noticed over Thomas Mills area, what appeared to be a plume of circular smoke or vapor that went "upward". This "upward" plume of smoke or vapor appeared strange to me. I would have expected it to go "downward".

That was the extent of my sighting.

And the amazing timing of this sighting from first sight to last sight, over some 4 miles was an amazing 7 or 8 "seconds". Why this timing sticks in my mind is that it was traveling so fast and so precise, that I actually counted the seconds. I don't know of anything that can go that fast. And it made no sound.

There was a body that was somewhat visable, but I was fixed on the light. The body of this UFO was not clear in my mind. As much as I wanted to form a shape, I couldn't. But the light was real, and lead me on its venture.
