Location: Silver Spring, PA
Shape: Disk
Duration:10-15 minutes
Followed a light in the sky, until we saw it hovering and we parked under it, till it shot off again out of sight.

I was with my girlfriend at the time. We were driving from my parents house to her parents house. We were driving east on Pa.route 23, going from about a mile east of Marietta, Pa,.to Silver Spring.

Off to our left up high,we saw a light in the sky that seemed to be traveling in the same basic direction we were. I decided to follow it if I could. At a certain point it, the light seemed to turn in a southerly direction.

Again I decided to follow. I turned right on the Ironville Pike to see if I could follow it again, which I was, at least for a minute or so, until we lost sight of it. We continued on the Ironville Pike to a cross-road or intersection, where we saw it again. But now it was not moving. It was hovering over the intersection or real close to it. Maybe a hundred feet or so up in the air. It was real hard to judge distance. But it was pretty darn close.

We pulled up almost directly under it, rolled down our windows and put our heads out and looked straight up at it. It was big, real big, circular in shape with different colored lights on it, not flashing. And it was humming. A real deep reverberating hum you could feel in your chest. We watched it for a minute or two when it started to move in a westerly direction, slow at first, then it shot off at a very high rate of speed and dissapeared out of sight..

I found out, guite a few years later, through a book about Lancaster Co, that someone else saw something very similar, about the same time, in just about the same location. Thanks
