Characteristics: Aura or haze around object, Left a trail, Aircraft nearby
Strange gaseous lights almost like the video I've seen of the Aurora Borealis, only I'm in Pennsylvania and it occurred in the southern sky. No color, but it did change formation somewhat.
In Southern Sky: Looked like exhaust, leaving a trail, from jet moving "up" but it was a curved line (and nighttime - with no clouds). The "light" stopped and the "trail" started to fade. Approx. 5-10 mins later, I looked up and the "base" of the tail (where it began) began to enlarge, brighten and take on a spherical shape as the entire length of trail became brighter (no color-just white). It looked like there was a rip in the sky that had opened up. Sphere changed into oval/"eye" shape; just the outline was white, the middle looked just like the rest of the sky. The trail (or "tail" as it now appears to have been) stayed attached and remained stationary as the "base" grew in size, in an easterly direction, as it faded. I hope I don't offend, but it looked like a giant sperm in the sky. By 00:35 it had dissappeared completely though I did not watch it the whole time b/c I came inside to get on-line. 1) Did not see an object that left the trail, just the trail itself 2) It did not have any color at all except maybe pale yellow 3) during the first stage of this sighting, when we just saw a trail moving in an upwards direction, there was an aircraft flying in a West-to-East direction (probably landing in Philadelphia)
