Posted: 7/14/2013
Location: Elizabethtown (north of), PA
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Extremely bright light north of Elizabethtown, PA

Upon looking into the sky I observed an extremely bright light, it appeared to be moving from west to east at an unknown but slow rate of speed.

At first I thought it was a star but it began to emit an extremely bright white light. It slowly light up becoming the brightest light in the sky and then disappeared.

I continued looking into its direction for a few minutes for blinking lights like that of a plain turning around but there was nothing.

I live near MDT an am very use to all types of aircraft.

This was not a firework either. The height of the object seemed as high as the constellation of the Big Dipper at the time of the incident.
