Shape: Circle
Characteristics: Lights on object

Witnessed an orange in color light shaped as a circle, moving across the sky, from the southern horizon to the north.

I came outside to smoke a cigarette. I know the exact time it was in the air as I had placed a call to the comm center for someone else to run out and witness this. At the time I placed the call the object was directly overhead (just east) of my position. When I came outside I noticed an object that looked similar to an orange in color streetlamp. Only the object seemed to be moving as would maybe a plane would. So I just watched it but initially paid no attention for the first few seconds as I thought it was just a plane. As it came closer to my position I noticed it was "different". I started to pay more attention to it. I dont remember it getting brighter as it closer, I just thought why is that street light moving? I then began thinking "someone else has got to see this". But it was hard for me to get my phone out and make a call because i felt that i didnt want to miss any of this. I made a call then to a co-worker to come outside. There was absolutely no sound. It seemed to be orange in color, and maybe just a little bit oblong, as to a circle. I waited for some type of sound as it was closer to me now than before. Judging the distance from my viewpoint and that the sky was somewhat overcast, I was in shock that i did not hear anything. By the time my co-worker had made it outside it was indistinguishable. It seemed as though the tail end was somewhat not as bright as the front. I lost sight of it through a tree on the opposite horizon. The craft came from the south and headed north bound. Seeming to pass right over the city of Lebanon. I believe it came from a south easterly direction then seemed to maybe "curve" to take a direct north bound path. I knew the sky was overcast as I could only see a star or two in the sky. This object seemed to not be obstructed whatsoever from cloud cover. so im guessing it was somewhat "low" altitude. the sighting lasted about 1.10 minutes. Thats m! y best judgement. It never changed color or shape, only as it ! passed o ver the tail end seemed to be "dimmer" than the front. I dont believe it was a "perfect circle", but It didnt seem to be cigar shaped or egg shaped. Thats the best description I can recall. It did somewhat shake me up, because I knew it didnt seem to be a plane or helicopter like ive witnessed numerous times. As I work in a 911 center in Lebanon County, I was excited to go back in hoping to get some calls on a strange light in the sky. We received no calls regarding any lights or aircraft.
