Location: Whitemarsh, PA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 3 min.
Three minutes hovering silent, orange-red fireball 10 feet across 400 feet high and the vanished

I was 11 years old it was a warm summer night while riding my bike on a dark lane when I saw over a half mile long field an orange red fireball hovering in the sky. I stared at it for about one minute or so. It never moved side to side, up or down, never changed in size or intensity of brightness or color. It was over the golf course maybe 400 feet up and seemed to be 5 to 10 feet across.

At this time I dropped my stingray climbed under the fence. I ran through the knee high grass as fast as I could toward the fireball for maybe 60 yards and stopped to look at it. The ball was still there, so huffing and puffing I continued my pursuit at the thing. Now I ran maybe another 50 yards again stopped to look up at it and it was gone.

I saw the Upper Dublin report!!! Oh my!
