Posted: 1/10/2009
Location: New Hope, PA
Shape: Cigar
Duration:20+ minutes
a bright 'falling' star that didn't fall but had trails of vapor and revolved so I could see the cigar or disk shape.

About 5:00 this morning I went outside and noticed what looked to be a bright star in the northeast. Immediately, two fiery "tails" - It almost looked like a triangle of light. I thought it might be a falling star but it wasn't moving. OR a plane waiting to land at the PHL airport. A flash of red lights along the bottom now and then. It seemed to be turning in place. Once it was broadside, I could see a shape - cigar or disk... I brought out binoculars and could see it more clearly. It may have been a blimp (?) But it wasn't moving.

If not full, then very bright moon.
