we saw 2 orange spheres appear high over the Pottstown area from our location to the south on a hill in Berks County. Spheres just appeared and then after a minute or two, "blinked out". One appeared again in a location over the Limerick Power Plant.

My friend and I decided to "sky-surf"--to watch for fireworks, beginning on the 4th of July. We observed two big orange spheres that appeared out of no where over Pottstown, high above the the airport. We had a very expensive Canon 35mm camera, and right when I focused on the spheres to take the shot, they disappeared. We watched for them to come back, but no luck. On 7/7 and 7/8, we went sky-surfing again, and about 10pm, we saw the spheres again, but very much higher and very bright. Again, we wanted to snap a picture, and they "blinked out". We will send
