Location: Bethel Park, PA
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 minutes
I was looking up at the big dipper, and to the left of the end of the handle, I witnessed a light slightly dimmer than the nearest stars that moved slowly toward the south in a straight line. I thought it was a satellite until it abruptly made a 90 degree turn toward the East, then continued in that direction at the same speed until I could no longer track it through the trees. I have been stargazing in this part of my yard for 5 years, and have never seen anything like this. It appeared to be a yellowish star-sized light that moved purposefully, yet V at a medium pace for approximately 2 minutes, then it seemed to flash slightly, and immediately turn 90 degrees toward the south. It looked like a smaller light remained at the point where the larger light made the 90 degree turn. It remained for about 10 seconds, and then slowly dimmed out. Meanwhile the primarily light continued in a southward direction in a straight line for at least another minute until I ! lost it in some trees. I dont know if this was a true ufo sighting, as it could have been some sort of astrological event However, I have not been able to find any articles describing an event of any kind taking place tonight, Saturday, October 3rd, 2020 it is now 8:17pm and I witnessed the light from approximately 7:59pm to 8:05pm ET (southwest Pennsylvania)
