Location: Elizabethtown, PA
Shape: Oval
Duration:30 seconds
Bright Oval Dissolved/Flickered in night sky

Very cloudy, over-cast, raining on and off throughout the evening. Noticed a bright oval/bell shaped light with a dim redish hue radiating from the object. It was late at night and looked as if there was a magnificent sunset coming through the clouds. The object/light lasted for 4 or 5 seconds and flickered/dissolved away. As it dissipated I could still see a purplish light as if I was staring at a bright light and gone; it did not fly away in a particular direction it was stationary.

The color of the light: oranges, reds, yellows, whites, purples (like a orange sunset with definitive edges)

My friend and I were both baffled and in shock! We both described the same thing back to each other to make sure we saw the same thing, our descriptions were exact.

A plane flew by minutes later and it was 1/30th the size and much higher in the sky.
