Characteristics: The object made a sound, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Orange orb over North-East PA 30 sec

While sitting on the front porch watching planes fly by with their blinking lights and straight flight paths, I noticed what i thought to be a plane at first coming towards the house but still at a far distance. One thing you should know is that our house is located about 20 min from the Wilkes-Barre Scranton airport. I have seen the flight paths of many aircrafts and know what airports planes are coming from just by knowing the direction they are flying from. I also notice that with all aircraft there are blinking lights on the ends of the wing tips. Now with this said I noticed an orange orb of light coming from a completely different way altogether. At first I heard a low rumble and was anticipating this aircraft maybe to be military. I was actually excited as military aircraft is rare over this area. As the object grew closer i knew that it was not military what so ever. It travelled for 25 seconds slowly in my direction and this is where it got weird. The orb reversed in the direction it came and literally darted out of site in a split second towards the stars!!!!!!! The disturbing thing to me was the speed it reversed as it was coming so slowly towards my direction in the beginning. I have been baffled by what I have seen and also about the United Kingdoms tabloids today, as the UK has reported a spectacular 150 sitings this year alone! There have been more in PA recently too.

There were no blinking lights on this object, it was if it was just a ball of light.
