|Red lights over residential neighborhood
I was driving along US Route 30 westbound with my mother headed to Walmart just after 8:15 pm. After passing the Greensburg/Mt. Pleasant exit, I noticed a red light sitting stationary in the sky towards the left side of my windshield in the distance, which would put it over the South Greensburg area. I told my mother if she noticed it, but she said no. Soon after, as we approached the Cedar Street exit, she finally noticed it after taking another look, which actually appeared to be two red lights hovering stationary over a residential neighborhood. The lights, which remained steadily lit the entire time, didn't appear to be close to each other nor did they move apart, which makes me wonder if it could've been a large craft hovering above the neighborhood. We continued on our way towards the US Route 119 exit but didn't notice anything else as we continued heading west. This occurred within a one minute timeframe, although I had slowed considerably when I not! iced the lights in the vicinity of the Cedar Street exit. A few minutes later, we noticed a helicopter flying towards the direction of the sighting although it appared to be a medical helicopter. Traffic in this area was relatively steady, weather conditions were partly cloudy in the low 40s.
