Reported: 4/3/2019 2:59:38 PM 14:59
Posted: 4/8/2019
Location: Gettysburg, PA
Shape: Sphere
A hovering sphere shaped object that appeared to be a spinning ball of fire, elongated several times, observed at daybreak

Approximately 6:15 a.m. Thursday, March 28, 2019, my spouse and I observed what we initially thought was a shooting star. However, it stopped suddenly and hovered for approximately 20 minutes. When zooming in on the video, it appeared to be a spinning ball of white fire. It appeared as a sphere, but elongated a few times to more cigar shaped. We were in Gettysburg for my spouse, who is a public official, to receive training at the Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg. I have a 5 minute video as well as several still shots. We lost visibility as the sky began to lighten. It never moved position again after the initial ‘arc across the sky’ which is what caught our attention. This was over the Camp Gettysburg Road area.
