Reported: 12/13/2011 8:48:42 PM 20:48
Posted: 12/17/2011
Location: Carroll Valley, PA
Shape: Rectangle
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Dark rectangular object with pale orange and pale green steady lights - fast moving and silent.

My husband and I regularly sit in the hot tub at night. We live in a rural area away from city lights and the stars are prominent. Tonight the sky was perfectly clear; no clouds and no wind at all. The moon was rising in the east but not overhead.

Since the stars are stunning you have a tendency to lean back and look up.

I was facing due north but my husband was facing due west when I noticed an opaque rectangular object with pale orange and pale green steady lights moving extremely fast and low across the sky from north to south. The object was dark but a different color than the night sky. I saw it but my husband could not because of the overhang of the garage and house.

Whatever it was, it did not make a sound.

We do not usually see low air traffic due to our proximity to Camp David so this was very confusing.

We are both professional people and have never made a report like this before.
