Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
2 lights that looked like the engine burn of a very large rocket were seen proceeding south and then south easterly. There was no sound and they seemed to be operating high in the atmosphere, possible exoatmospheric. If exoatmospheric, the speed at which these two craft (they were definitely a craft of some sort) we’re moving exceptionally fast. The first turned East after crossing the eastern portion of PA. The second, seemed to ascend into either outer space or run out of fuel and became undetectable to the human eye after burning out.

These could have been something like an ICBM, but I struggle with the thought of being able to see the orange glow of an ICBMs rocket booster at such a range. I’ve seen some weird things as a skywatcher, but nothing as inexplicable as this.
