Posted: 7/6/2015
Location: Johnstown, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Dull orange, non-blinking, light appearing in Northeast sky and then moving slowly until disappearing.

Nearly every Sunday, and on some other days less regularly, a dull orange, non-pulsating, light appears in the Northeast sky over Johnstown, PA. It appears suddenly and usually is fairly high in the sky when it appears. It moves slowly but generally predictably from Northeast to Southeast. Its movements are not consistent with any kind of aircraft and there are never any green or red blinking lights observed. It traces an irregular path and will, after 5-10 minutes, start to fade out and then reappear. It has also appeared, although much less often, in the Northwest sky. But when it does it follows the same pattern. It appears almost always between 2200 and 2230 hours on Sunday evenings. But it has appeared at some other times as well.
