Location: Pottstown - Trenton, PA
|Cigar shape on end shaped like a pill perfectly vertical did not change altitude whole object emitted bright red light.
Just after 6 o'clock September 27th, I spotted a bright red cylinder light strait ahead. We were at 2700 feet flying 121 mph with a ground speed of approx 90 mph against a head wind.
I called Approach and let them know we have a aircraft 12 o'clock at the same altitude. Approach replied they do not see any aircraft on the radar. I told them that's great but were looking right at it.
Just before it moved away to the east (same direction we were flying...into the wind) I asked my Daughter to get a picture before it disappeared. We have a still and video.
The whole object was very bright red almost laser bright then went to white. It was pill shaped standing vertical. It did not change its heading or altitude it moved faster than we were traveling away from us to the east. We spotted it over Trenton moving east.
Hurricane Marie was off the coast. It disappeared into one of the bands.
