Posted: 12/2/2000
Location: Pottstown, PA
Shape: Light
Duration: 1 hour
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Huge, intense bright white light that changed in size and direction, accompanied by 5 others.

Observed a very bright shining light to the east of the setting moon. Sky was mixture of clear and very high clouds. The light was very noticeable and began to move from southwest to southeast at a very slow pace. Appeared to be very high, perhaps 10,000ft. Slowly dropped down to about 2,000ft, remaining extremely bright intense white light, then dimming to a tiny pin point of light, then getting extremely bright again. I got into my car and drove to a friends' house approximately 6 miles southeast of my location, hurried in to tell her to come out and see it. When we went out, there it was, with 5 other ones, that were drifting down and hovering over the tree lined hills to our immediate south. We watched them move down under the tree light and observed them disappear and appear quite some distance away to the southwest. No sound, except that of a commercial jetliner heading northeast over us. We went in because it was getting too cold and windy outside. When I was driving up to her place, my radio was picking up a lot of static which is unusual.

((NUFORC Note: We cannot be certain what the witness observed, but we do observe that the report is not inconsistent with a "twinkling" star. However, that is only a guess. UFO's generally do not remain visible in one location for an hour, and there were no other reports from this part of the country. PD))
