|2 bright white lights moving away from the ground rapidly over the mountains of western PA
my fiance and I were watching a movie, with my children, outside on the lawn of her fathers house in the hills of Westmoreland county PA. To the east over the mountains she and I witnessed 2 white sphere shaped lights equi-distance apart moving away from the ground in a north easterly direction. They moved parallel to eachother and the event lasted 20-30 seconds. I describe the event like a reverse shooting star as the lights were as bright as a night time star moving rapidly although not as fast as a shooting star. the lights didnt fade but just stopped being visable. Aircraft and sattelites in orbit are frequently spotted over this area, as the night sky is very dark and clear. No aircraft were witnessed at the time of this sighting and no aircraft have ever been seen moving in such a manner as was witnessed. The kids were watching the movie and didnt see the event which might have spooked them. I'm 37 my fiance is 27 and we've never witnessed anything like this before. I just found your site tonight that's why I haven't posted sooner. I checked for spacecraft/sattelite/rocket launch or other sightings on that night but my search resulted in nothing significant.
((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the event is approximate. PD))
