Location: Philadelphia, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
22:00- black sky, medium cloud cover. I was about to cross the street, but i looked up and noticed a soft white light heading northeast. Helicopters and planes fly over my area all the time and I can plainly state that this was neither. It was completely silent and moved very slowly.

I was so taken back by this " light" that I leaned against a brick wall to watch its movements.

Just as it was almost over my street, it slowly turned right and began to head east towards the river.

I felt really happy and aloof during and after I witnessed it. I noticed that it kept getting brighter and dimmer and at one point saw a flicker if and orange light either on the right side or the underbelly of the light.

The light appeared to be circular, but mainly just a slow moving light. Since I was already feeling crazy, I asked the light to turn on and off so I knew it was really there and I wasn't imagining things, but instead it slowed down directly overtop and in front of me and dropped a smaller white light that flickered down and immediately disappeared, at which point the larger light sped up, turned and orangey- red color, and sped away.

I should also mention that the street went from being filled to nothing during about a 5 minute time frame, and I believe I was the only witness on my street.

After the light passed and I crossed the street, cars and people started showing up again. There you go!
