My girlfriend and i were outside smoking a ciggarette in the front yard around 23:00 hours on saturday october 21, 2017. The front yard faces the north towards pennsylvania. I noticed a breif flash that caught my attention, I immediately thought it was a meteorite (shooting star). My girlfriend has never wittnessed a shooting star so i grabed her shoulders and turned her towards the lite object in the sky,it caught her attention as soon as i turned her in the direction of the object, she wittnessed this lit object only for about 1 second.

The bright white lit object did not have the charecteristics of a meteorite burning up in the earths atmosphere. I have wittnesed that experience many times,and they differ of coarse.However this bright white lit object that came from the night sky starting somewhere close to the center point from where the little dipper was and the ground was.I knew it was different from anything ive seen falling from the sky before. It did not burn up and it was going way to slow ...It simply lit up bright white and stayed the same brightness for as long as i could keep it in sight. The house accross the street obstructed our view and it hit the ground... It was round like a globe or disk… Bright white. !
