Location: Wilmington, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:30 seconds
Thin orange-red "stringy" light hanging in Wilmington sky. Maybe it flashed.

I was heading North on I-95 less than a mile South of Wilmington. I am quite sure, but not certain, that the object flashed brightly just before briefly going out of view behind a sign, from my perspective.

Once my attention was focused on it, I was looking at a vertically oriented thin red-orange light that seemed to be suspended in the air. The top was maybe a bit larger than the rest. It was like a little piece of illuminated string hanging in the sky.

It was way up in the sky by itself and seemed to be completely still. It was far away and I had to keep driving safely; I lost sight of it after 30 seconds or less.

I exited in Wilmington to see if I could see it again. No luck.
