Sighting Reports 2008

Man Sees Several Aircraft Approach Bright Orange Light in Eastern Sky

Date of Sighting: August 22, 2008
Time of Sighting: 9:46 PM EDT
Date Sighting Reported: August 23, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Unknown
Location of Sighting: Valencia, PA Near Glade Mill Lake (W. PA About 10 MI N. of Pittsburgh)
Latitude: 40.71 Degrees North
Longitude: 79.9 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Skies Were Clear. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the Southeast at 9 MPH.

Description: I was on my porch looking east I saw what at first I thought was just a bright star. The first thing I noticed was that it was extremely bright with a sort of orange tint. I also then noticed how low it was compared to all the other stars I could see. It was way too low and bright to be a star. This is when I just said to myself that I couldn't be seeing this. Then it slowly rose from the position of just hovering and slowly began to move to the north behind some trees and moved out of my field of vision. As I sat on the porch wondering what I just saw the sky began to fill with anywhere between 8-12 various planes and jets in the area that the sighting just occurred. This is what surprised me the most and prompted me to look up this site and send you this hoping maybe someone else saw this and could help explain.

Comments: It is difficult to conclude that the aircraft activity in the vicinity of the light was due to its presence. I have received no response to my request for more information. This sighting lacks sufficient detail to be classified. No other witnesses have yet reported any sightings in this area.
