I was sitting on the front porch, not able to sleep. My dog was with me.

Suddenly my dog became very agitated and seemed to want back in the house. At the same time my head and hair began to tingle. This caused me to look up and to my right.

I was shocked to see a luminous green object, circular in the center, with pointed (wings) off to each side. It was just under the cloud deck about 1000 feet. No sound whatsoever, it was just gliding North to South over the middle of the town.

I should note here that Carlisle Pa. is the site of the Army War College. I only note this because a lot of sitings are known to be near US military bases. This is only a School for the learning of warfare tactics. There are no airfields, of anykind nearby that could be used by the military for experimental aircraft.

Cumberland county is a very densly populated area, especially in the eastern part of the county. Westward the skies are far darker as you near the mountain which is the front range of the Appalachian chain.
