Location: Lancaster, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:20-30 seconds
Bright light seen over SE PA.

A bright white light crossing the sky caught my attention. The object was moving at a steady pace south to north. It was round, and about the size of Venus, a little larger, and noticeably brighter. It did not blink, flash, make noise, or change color. About 20 degrees east another light, possibly a meteor, flashed across the low horizon. At that moment the light stopped, paused for about a second, and started moving east. The angle of path change was about 90 degrees, possibly minutely obtuse. The speed was slower after this. At this point I ran to get my brother to have another witness, but the object was gone by our return. We waited for 10 minutes, but the object did not come back into view. It is the third object I have observed in that area, but I did not report the other two. This object bears a resemblance to the first I saw in that area, about two years ago. That object moved in similar way, but slower. It also changed color from white, to red, to g! reen, back to white, to blue, and back to red. That object moved in a sporadic zigzag for about 15 minutes before shooting up at great speed. Both these objects and another were seen within a half mile of each other, and all three times what appear to be meteors have fallen during or just before the sighting.
