Location: Grove City, PA
|Light pattern moving silently through rapid maneuvers over Grove City
Object seen in the night sky over the city. Exact characteristics of the object unknown; only lights were visible. Lights included 2 red constant lights, 2 white constant lights, 1 red strobe light, and 1 white strobe light. No green lights were visible, as are required on civilian and military aircraft. The lights were arranged in a single straight line.
Object moved through a series of rapid S-turns for a period of approximately one minute, and then proceeded northeast at an incredibly rapid speed. The object made no noise and moved far too rapidly for a helicopter.
Observer noticed an airliner near the object, identifiable by lighting patterns as a commercial airliner; the unknown object ceased S-turns and fled the area upon the airliner's approach and easily outran the airliner.
Observer lived near a airport for 20 years, is an aviation student, and his father is a pilot. Lighting configuration does not match any known aircraft pattern by either person.
