Location: Natrona Heights, PA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: few minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Unidentified flame flying low over natrona heights

I was in my truck pulling out of the parking lot at work when i noticed a flame in the sky floating a little above the houses accross the street. It almost looked like the flame from a hot air balloon but without the balloon. A friend of mine was in the truck with me and had thought for a minute it might have been a meteor. I followed under the flame down a street lined with houses and was so intrigued i had never seen anything like it before. I grabbed the camera i had in my truck to try to take a picture but before i could take a picture the object picked up speed flying accross the highway, through the plaza parking lot area towards the highschool and increased altitude until it disappeared into the stars. I went back to my work and 2 of the men i work with had also seen the object. They were dumping garbage in the dumpster when they saw it fly above the building I work in heading over the back parking lot where I had pulled out and started to follo! w it. The whole incident happened in a few minutes. I have lived in this town 38 years and never wittnessed anything that compares to this.
