|White light observed traversing sky SW to NE then descending in a fallen leaf motion.
The object was first observed sometime between 1am and 2am on Friday June 20th, 2014, (I know this was the time because we were waiting on the moonrise which I knew should be shortly) from campsite #4 in Bald Eagle State Forest by both myself and my girlfriend. The object was a constantly illuminated white-colored orb (spherical), which was about the brightness and size of the planet Jupiter when viewed in the night sky with the naked eye, and which traversed the sky from southwest to northeast at about the same pace as a commercial airliner would be moving, possibly faster. It was initially moving in a straight line, but then began to disappear beneath the visible horizon while making a zigzagging motion, much like a falling leaf. The object made no sound.
The object then reappeared in the north about ten minutes after the initial sighting in the exact same or approximate location as the North Star. We did not realize at the time that this object was sighted in that particular location until the following days when a stationary star was spotted in the same locale, which was obviously the North Star. Our best guess is that either we did not see the North Star during phenomenon, or the phenomenon itself made the North Star appear to be moving.
When spotted the second time, in the north, the object moved in circles, then right for a small distance, then it stopped, moved left and up and down, and so on in the same approximate vicinity for at least twenty minutes as it was observed by both myself and my girlfriend who was standing directly behind my shoulder. It would move quickly and then stop or pause before moving again.
The object changed colors from white to red to blue and then back to white during the entire second sighting. The object made no sound and eventually ceased moving sometime after we could no longer watch it because our necks were getting rather stiff.
NOTE: Movements of the object reminded me of a sighting of lights on Little Mountain seen by both Dad and myself on the exact same night 4 years ago, which was reported to Stan Gordon.
