Shape: Unknown
Duration: 10-20 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Object with red lights made hard 90 degree turn without slowing down.

Around 22-23:00 near the town on Slatington, Pennsylvania, on the 16, 17 or 18th of August, 2016, my wife and I saw an object with 2 solid red lights and a flashing white light attached to it. It was headed west. It made a 90 degree turn to the south without slowing down. I wouldn't try to estimate the elevation or size of the object. The hard 90 degree turn is what made it mysterious. It could possibly be a drone, I don't think it was though.

A few months ago we saw an aircraft at night in the same location, with the same red light pattern fly over the house and leave a long lasting contrail.

Thank you for your time and attention.
