Location: Allentown, PA
Shape: Disk
Duration:1 minute
Slowly hovering disk shaped object with a four pronged star-like shape on the bottom flying 60 feet above tree level.

I just came home from Band Camp around 9:20, and when I was rounding the corner from the CVS, I see something bright in the sky. I point out to my mom, "Hey, look, we can see Venus tonight!". She then says "That's not Venus, it's blinking." I look closer to find out that it is, indeed blinking. It almost looks like a helicopter roughly a mile away. But when we (My mother and I) turned the corner, it was out of our view for, say, 10-13 seconds. We came up on my road and it looked like it was 200, give or take 50 feet.

Well, I told my mom, "Hurry, speed up and find it, it looks close!". She drove forward, and it looked much closer than I'd thought, and we could literally see it moving across the sky, 50-70 above the houses. We looked at it for around 20 seconds, and as if it saw us, it started to fly away, speeding up to around 50 miles an hour. Then next thing I know, it just completely zooms off out of sight of the sky within seconds.
