Shape: Light
Duration:30 mins
Bright light over Maryland skies,,,,

The moment of the sighting happened around 5:25 a.m. when my boyfriend was outside smoking a cigarette and suddenly yelled for me to come outside to look at something. At first I thought it was a plane or helicopter hovering very low but then I realized it was definitely something else. The skies were clear except for a few clouds passing by and there was relatively no wind. The object was extremely bright, brighter than the North Star and its size didn’t compare to a star. It was like 20 stars put together or more. It hovered very low below the clouds and moved left to right very slowly. Even when the clouds passed by, you could still see it shining through. The light would constantly turn off and on and at times it wasn’t visible for about 30 seconds. The shape of the object was like a star that is flattened out and its color was a bright yellow/orange. There are not any military bases near by or radio towers of such, just mountains and open fields.
