|Falling or landing ball of light over Home Depot in Warrington, PA, 9 pm at night.
I was heading north on PA State Route 611 (Easton Road), approaching Street Road in Warrington, PA. It was roughly 9, 9:30 PM. Dark. This is a highly populated area of "big box" stores that has either shopping centers or gas stations on all 4 corners.
As I approached the intersection with Street Road, I noticed a light “falling” from the sky, roughly above the area of where there is a Home Depot on the northwestern corner. It fell relatively slowly, but steadily at a consistent speed. It could have been “falling” or “landing”. It was ball-shaped, and it was whitish light. I could see no structure associated with it, just the light. “What is that!?”, I said out loud to no one.
I stopped at the red light, and continued to observe it “falling” down. Strangely, there were no other cars at the light with me, but going east/west and south there were. It was very hard to determine size or what area it would hit, it could have been above the Home Depot, it could have been behind it, or it could have been a mile away.
The light disappeared behind buildings and the traffic light changed to green, and as much as I could as I continued driving north, I looked to the left to see if there was a smoke plume or anything when it landed, but nothing. Continuing north, I heard no sirens, saw no speeding police cars or fire trucks. This is a major artery.
I almost called the police, but decided not to. I have driven this route every week night for 14 years around the same time of night, and have never seen anything like it.
