Location: Trexlertown/Allentown, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Very bright light hovering in the sky.

We were driving home in Mertztown, PA, when my 12 year old commented on the VERY bright light directly ahead of us in the night sky. There was also a full moon at the time. At first my husband and I paid very little attention, and then we both noticed that it was not moving, but staying perfectly in one place.

We pulled in our driveway and continued to watch it. It moved straight down at one point, and then returned to its original hover position. The light stayed pretty constant for most of the sighting, then it began to dim and come back brightly again. As we ran to the house for the telescope, my son yelled to me that in the blink of an eye is was entirely GONE!! Very strange. I never saw anything behave that way before.
