Location: North Huntingdon, PA
Duration:at least 1 hour
|A circular stationary object was spotted to the north of Pittsburgh with red, green, and white rotating lights.
My wife and I were out for a cigarette on our front porch before bed and we noticed an object far off in the distance to the north that appeared to be a star or planet. However, my wife pointed out that the object was rapidly cycling through at least three colors: white, red, and green. The color cycle was not like that of an airplane or helicopter as it did not blink; it was a fast swirling cycle that appeared to rotate clockwise over and over again. Also, the object did not move at all in any direction, so it could not be an airplane. The chances of it being a hovering helicopter seemed slim since it did not move up or down or side to side for over an hour of observing it. The object was too high in the sky and too far away to be a light tower of any kind.
I went inside and grabbed a pair of binoculars to get a better look, but the quality of the pair I was using was poor and all the best I could really make out was a bit of a closer look at the cycling of colors. They were moving very fast as I said, and I believe I could see some blue in addition to the red, green and white. I know nothing of UFOs – only what I've seen on the Discovery channel, but this is certainly the first time I’ve ever seen anything in the sky that I did not immediately recognize. I hope I’m not the only one who has reported seeing this.
