Location: Shohola Falls, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:Approx: 2 minutes
After having pulled off the road at the Shohola Falls gameland access, I was enjoying a star filled sky which was "very clear" tonight. The moon had already set, so the sky was very dark. The milky way was glowing, and as I was looking up at it streaching from South West to North East I saw a blue light pass over at a very high altitude. It moved very slowly and I figured that it was a satelite in orbit. It was moving along the milky way and as I watched it, the object did something which I have never seen a satelite do! The color of the object changed from a star blue to a brilliant white light and increased in magnitude. It then dimmed back to the star blue. After that it again changed to a brighter blue and dimmed again. I know that it was not an illusion caused by clouds as it was a very clear sky! As the object moved down range it faded into the night sky.
