Location: Meadville, PA
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 seconds
Moving light,decending,turned on large flood light,silent,light faded out and object pulled back and proceeded upwards very high at a steep angle. We were enjoying a backyard campfire at the time.

I own a carpet cleaning business in meadville, Pa. My son who was visiting with his family for the holiday has a degree in marketing and works in that field. I first observed the light moving across and downward. It was the magnitude of a large star. The light was constant and consistent as it moved. I brought it to the attention of my son. At that moment the object appeared to turn downward and grew very bright . I could only describe it as a super flood light. It hovered there for a few seconds and the light dimmed down and almost out as if it were turned down by a rheostat switch. The object pulled back out and upward at a sharp angle. Ot had a dim light and went out. We disussed the possibilities and concluded that what we saw was intelligently maneuvered and the light was artificial.
