Huge oval shaped craft which had an amber glow quietly flew at tree top level over my friend and I.

Back in 1989, my friend and I were college students attending the Penn State Mont Alto campus. The day we saw the object we were returning from a little excursion to the mall. We parked the car in the lot below campus and then proceeded to walk back to our dorm room. As we were walking up the hill, I noticed this glowing light coming off South Mountain. At first we thought it was the moon since it had a glow much like that of the full moon. But then we noticed that it was slowly moving towards us quietly just above the trees. We stopped and watched as it gradually made its way directly over us. We were petrified! The object was probably over a hundred feet long, oval shaped and glowing. It made no sound and seemed to stop the wind from blowing as it passed overhead. I can remember feeling warmth radiating down upon us. Moments later it shot off at an incredible speed into the evening sky. As it was speeding away it looked like a bright star, gradually diminishing until it completed disappeared..
