Black craft with colored lights over Oil City, Pennsylvania.

Around 8:30 PM on September 1st, 2015, my significant other and I witnessed some kind of craft hovering over the center of our city. We were facing North, and we live at the top of a hill in our city. We are both in our early twenties and work most of the day, so we spend most of our time on the back porch at night.

That night we witnessed what I can only describe as a black "twinkie" with reddish-purple lights on both ends, and a very bright blue light in the middle of the craft, situated at the bottom. The lights on the side would change from bright red to a very deep maroon, almost purple.

There was no reflection on the actual craft itself from these lights, although there were halos of the same colored light around the craft.

We watched it for at least a minute, as it was motionless. I thought it to be a satellite or some kind of plane, but then it began to move. The movement was erratic, moving in zig-zags and up and down at an extremely fast speed.

We watched it move for about 45 seconds, until it came to a halt. It moved slightly upward and then just seemed to disappear.

My significant other and I have witnessed this kind of craft in the same location before, once on July 22nd, 2015, for about 10 minutes at 10:45 PM, and once again on July 15, around midnight, for less than 5 minutes.


We spoke via telephone with the witness, and she sounded to us to be quite eloquent and serious-minded. We suspect that she is a very good witness. PD
