|Stationary white light seen hovering off to the east of Monroeville, Pa.
I was heading east bound on 376 heading from Pittsburgh when I saw a bright light off in the East. It was white and seemed to be stationary. This caught my attention because I saw something similar the morning the day previous just outside my house.
As I exited onto Business 22 towards Monroeville I continued to pay attention to it. I had stopped at a few lights on my way to the gas station and while I was waiting I used lamp posts as reference points to determine that the object was indeed still. I also tried to use the opportunity to take a picture, but the image didn’t come out because of all the street lights. It was a cloudy night out and no stars were visible.
As I approached the gas station I noticed that it started to dim a little. Then as I pulled into the parking spot the object became brighter again. I attributed this to possibly some clouds covering it briefly. Once I parked it was behind the awning of the station and some trees. It was not in view then.
I went inside of the building, bought a few things, got in my car, pulled out and when it should have been in view again it wasn’t there. The object looked like it could have been over the Plum, Murrysville area.
