Summary : I left work in bloomsburg pa at 700pm heading east on I80 at 710pm about 1/4 of a mile from the bridge that crosses the river i saw a large green light flying above the river when it reached the bridge it made a hard 90 degree turn and went over the mountain staying right above the trees and heading south. thought it was a plane but a plane can not fly above the water cause of the islands in the water. i went home and told my father about it he believed me the next day in the paper it said that some green lights were seen in Washington DC at 715 pm they said that they were meteors well the one i saw was not. the other thing is it was going south in the direction of DC.

IN the summer of 91 i was heading home from work.I left work at 700 pm. Traveling east on I80 i started to approach the Mifflinville bridge. At 710 i seen this Large round bright green light flying above the river. i thought it was a plane cause the Bloomsburg airport was near by. I knew it could not fly above the river cause of the islands in it. the object was about 100 feet in diameter and was quiet.It flew above the water about 40 feet. By the time i got to the middle of the bridge the object made a hard 90 degree turn and flew over the mountain right above the trees. now going south. when i went home i told my father about it. he believed me. the next day in the paper was a writing about green lights seen in Washington DC at 715 pm the same night i seen my light. they said that it was a meteor. tell me this how can a meteor fly up a river then make a left turn before hitting a bridge and then fly over a mountain abofe the trees heading south in the direction which DC is in. There are two airports where i live and they are both 20 miles away from my house one of them should have something. It was no meteor.It was no plane.As far as i know i was the only one that saw it.
