Duration:20 mins.
I ran to the store, and when I got back my 12 year old son and wife were very excited/nervous saying they had just seen a UFO and caught it on video.They said the crafts were close,quiet and moved unlike airplanes. I watched a few minutes of the tape and being an airplane mechanic by trade it did not have a classic light pattern of any commercial aircraft.It appears on tape to be 3 objects close together. Two close together off the sides moving irregularly,and one in center more classic,disc shaped,spinning as my wife said "Like a top".

Intrigued I went upstairs to try to see what I just saw on tape for myself and again I caught on video this time what appeared, a very far distance off at this time, maybe 8-10 miles, an unusually bright object over eastern PA.It was most certainly not in the airplane flight path as planes taking off from Allentown appeared to be moving from the NW to the SE towards me at a steady speed. This object moved from the east due west.

I've never really believed but it was unidentifiable to me.It was strange.Bright at times moving rapidly in the distance then gone.All total maybe 20 minutes.
