Small blue orb flew west to east at a high altitude and speed for a few seconds before disappearing.

I was sitting in the away stands at Lampeter-Strasburg High School’s football field looking at the cloudless sky when I saw a small blue orb high in the sky fly for a distance and then disappeared. This took around 2-3 seconds. I cannot recall if it had entered my field of vision and then disappeared, or if it had appeared and disappeared within my field of vision. It made no sounds like a meteor does.

The orb was light blue and had no discernible features. Based on where I was sitting, it flew from west to east. If I had to guess, it started at perhaps 60 degrees and flew downward to 30 or 40 degrees. It did not occur directly above the field but a little to the left (north). Three of my friends had also seen the anomaly, and it’s likely that more people in the stands had seen it.

Upon talking with my great-aunt a day later, I found out that she and maybe some other people had seen a very similar phenomenon at Muhlenberg High School’s football field at approximately the same time. The event had occurred just before marching bands at both high schools were going to march onto the field for their pre-game show (around 18:50), so it can be concluded that they were the same event. It is also worth noting that the high schools are 32.08 miles apart. To my knowledge, the sightings at both locations were not caught on camera.
