Red Globes over western Pennsylvania....

Currently, 2249 EST 02/27/2008, watching the History Channel UFO's. They're reporting about a 'Red Globe' or 'Light' that was seen many years ago in Britain.

I want to report as an American airline pilot (not American Airlines pilot but another large international carrier, I saw the same red 'Globe/s', numerous maybe 30 one night, twilight time, over western Pennsylvania.

I was flying along in a B737 at about FL280 going west bound from say Philadelphia to Cleveland, and over western Pennsylvania in an area where there were virtually no lights coming from homes or other obvious public dwellings and over an area with very hilly or rugged looking topography/terrain, I saw these 'Globes' seemingly coming up out of the trees, fairly dense growth, and moving around.

At first it was just one or two, then more and more of them, moving small distances then moving at accelerated rates and large distances. I tried to discern a pattern or patterns and none came to mind however they seemed to move in some grid like patter, very fast and I would estimate a mile or two at a time.

They move a distance then settle down into the trees, then rise up above the trees and race off to the next destination, and go down below the trees.

Watching all of them move over this hilly terrain was most unusual and I haven't seen anything like it since. Occasionally I'll see some mention of these red 'Globes' on some UFO show or report and think about what my First Officer and I witnessed. I don't believe it was man made, but something else.

The patterns or grids they were moving would, or at least to me, seemed almost in retrospect, computer generated and not some natural cause.

The whole thing was clear, clear as can be, which I've never reported or written about, frankly I've told few people with little detail on what we saw.

Now, I'm not sure what it was I saw, but it sure didn't look like something from this planet, really weird.....
