Orange light in the sky

On Sunday, July 3rd, 2011, my family and myself was at her grandfather's house awaiting the start of the township fireworks scheduled for this evening (Patton, PA). My daughter and I were looking in the sky for fireworks the locals were setting off early.

We noticed an orange'ish light far away in the sky, just being able to be seen above the trees in front of us. We observed this orange light coming in our direction. At first it appeared to maybe be a helicopter. But upon watching more of this, it stopped and seemed to be motionless for about a minute or so, then faded away back into the dark sky. Again, a few minutes later, this same object appeared again and brighter.

I immediately took pictures with my iphone and filmed a video (this is all I had on me and the quality is not that good). Four of us observed this and questioned what this is. Again, the light slow changed directions and disappeared.

I can say that this was not a helicopter because I live near the local hospital and witness helicopters takeoff and land all the time. Since last weekend, I have seen some military helicopter flying around the area but I am not sure if this is just a routine procedure.

This is not the first time I have witnessed UFO activity this year. Again, almost 2 months ago in Warfordsburg, PA, I had 2 witnesses with me at the end of my shift at work and we witnessed lights moving in and out of the tree line, changing directions and changing colors.. Then slowing flying away like normal aircraft.

My coworker became freaked out but I was excited since I have been hoping to see ufo activity for years.

This same phenomenon occurred several times before the night sky became quiet. Night staff workers told me they have witness this many times in the past.
