Date of Sighting: June 7, 2008
Time of Sighting:
10:45 AM EDT
Date Sighting Reported:
June 10, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Few Minutes. (Exact Time Unknown)
Location of Sighting:
Limerick, Pennsylvania (E. PA About 40 MI NW of Philadelphia)
40.23 Degrees North
75.59 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses:
Weather at the Closest Weather Station (Reading) Showed 3 Miles Visibility in Haze at the Time of the Sighting. Winds Were Light. Reading is About 20 Miles From Limerick and the Witness Stated That the Haze Had Burned Off and Skies Were Clear. The Temperature to Rose to About 95 Degrees That Day.

Description: As the morning haze was burning off I spotted what I thought at first were two large helicopters hovering over high tension lines on the Limerick Power Plant property. They appeared larger than usual, and in the split seconds of my thinking, seemed to look like small blimps. I now realized I was seeing something else: a UFO. The object was silvery white in color. It was at this point they both tilted in a 45 (or so) degree angle and quickly vanished behind the power plant towers, at about half way up of the height of the towers. I proceeded driving to the power plant entrance only a quarter of a mile from my sighting, but of course there was nothing more to be seen. I am wondering if anyone else in the Limerick, PA area may have reported anything similar. I did come home and sketch what I had seen, but I do not know how to transfer that via computer. The objects had a rounded top, with a flat, lip extended bottom. (See witness drawing above.) The p.s. to this sighting is when telling this to a neighbor of mine, he said that he was afraid to tell anyone what he had seen a couple of weeks ago at dusk as he sat out on his patio. (We both live only a mile or so from the Power Plant property and have a clear view of the towers.) He said he watched for a considerable length of time as lights rotated around the tops of the two towers (other than the lights on the towers themselves). He at first thought it couldn't be. He thought perhaps it was a test of some sort of whatever, but he claims he saw what he saw. He was reluctant to tell anyone until I told him of my sighting. Is anyone else reporting this sort of activity in Limerick PA? I would like to compare notes with them.

Comments: The witness sighted something unusual in the area of a power plant. No power outages were reported. (Sometimes this occurs when these objects are in the area of power plants or near powerlines.) Given available information I have no explanation for this sighting.
