National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 7/18/2008 21:50 (Entered as : 07/18/08 21:50)
Reported: 7/19/2008 6:30:21 AM 06:30
Posted: 8/12/2008
Location: Johnstown, PA
Shape: Light
Duration: 10 min
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
One bright light 2 times brighter than any planet or star in the sky was following a commercial airliner in an east-northeast path across the cloudless sky. The object stayed behind (about 1 mile) and to the right or south of the airliner. The object was so bright, that after the airliner disappeared in the horizon, the object could still be seen. I have seen this same object in 1960, 1984 and now in 2008. The previous objects made a low humming sound as they passed overhead. This object did not pass overhead, it was to the south of my position, and so I don't know if it made the same sound or not.
