Posted: 9/28/2017
Location: Hellertown, PA
Shape:
Duration: 2 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
A hazy white oval witnessed by one person for a couple of seconds.

My wife and I had just finished shopping at a plaza at Rtes. 309 and 663. We headed north on 309, and a few seconds later, I noticed a light appear in the Western sky, about 30 degrees in elevation.

It was oval shaped, kind of hazy looking and faded out after a couple of seconds. During that time it travelled in a short arc, rising slightly and then dropping.

It wasn't possible to tell its size, speed, or distance travelled. However, it appeared bigger and travelled much slower than any bollide I've ever seen.
