Bright Light Over Pittsburgh!

I was driving in my car this evening around 8:15pm on I-376 from Pittsburgh to Monroeville when I saw it. It was bright enough to stand out greatly against the grey background of high, distant clouds.

What I saw was, as best as I can describe, a large disk that was invisible on the top, and radiating a bright, fuzzy white light out of its sides. It was so clear that I didn’t know what to think at first. Then, suddenly, it pretty much disappeared.

The disappearing part was like an oval of light doing a shrinking iris like at the end of a Looney Tunes cartoon.

The size of it was comparable to holding a penny at arms length, or maybe a dime if you have short arms.

It seemed to be very high, far away, and very big.

I didn’t (still don’t) know what to do or what to think or how to feel…I was certainly not a type of person to believe what I saw. Even now my rational self tells me that it had to have been something else… But my eyes and heart tell me that I saw an invisble disk in the sky suddenly fire up it's engine and take off. I know what I saw, and it was incredible. Unexplainable.
