Posted: 6/24/2016
Location: Throop, PA
Shape: Circle
Duration:15 minutes
I was on my back porch looking up at the stars around 10:20 eastern time, when I observed what looked to be a shooting star. It moved very fast straight down toward the ground in a white ball of light.

I was on the phone with a friend and I told them what I saw. Maybe a minute later I saw something moving at a decent speed moving towards the front of my house. I first noticed it right above where I saw the "shooting star". This object looked simular to a medium sized star. It wasn't big and bright. The light was solid and there was nothing blinking. I ran to the front of my house to keep an eye. Lost of for a few minutes and spotted it again. It seemed to have changed directions. It seemed to be very high in the sky. Higher than any airplane. Then I noticed it looked like it was going up higher. I eventually lost it.

To quick some the description up, small white ball of light coasting through the sky. Did not seem to have a direct path as would an airplane. Traveling west and seemed to be going up after ithe reached a certain point.

When I noticed it, I was on the phone with my boyfriend, and he told me to call the UFO hot line. Can't say for sure if it was a UFO, but definitely was not an airplane.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with the female witness, who submitted the report, and she corrected the date, which had not been indicated in the original report. She seemed to be very polite and bright-minded, which makes us believe that the report is sincere. PD))
