Time: Approx: 7:00 p.m.
I was traveling on the PA Turnpike just outside of Donegal, PA around 7:00 p.m. last night (October 16th, 2012).
It was not completely dark yet. The sky was clear. No clouds, no stars, no moon visible and the turnpike was busy.
There was a tractor trailer ahead of me, cars behind me and passing me. In the distance there were mountains, on either side of the road were woods.
All of a sudden out of nowhere this big bright white ball of light appeared in the sky. Off to the left in the distance, but very close and low in the sky. A split second earlier it was not there. It just appeared at the blink of an eye.
It didn't move and was only stationary in the sky long enough that it caught my attention. I have never seen anything so bright. It was just this big ball of radiant white light, about the size of the moon if the moon where to be visible, but it was low in the sky, in the atmosphere, and close.
Just as quickly as I noticed it glowing in the sky, it dropped at free fall speed into the woods. It didn't leave a trail like a shooting star, a fireball, or a comet. It just dropped straight down, and fast.
I couldn't believe what I had just seen, and even more unbelievable was that no one else seemed to notice or be alarmed by it. No one slowed down or pulled off the road.
Everyone kept moving at 65 mph or faster.
I fully expected to see an explosion of some kind coming from the woods, because this thing was big, the size of the moon if it were in the sky, but low.
This LED like bright ball of light just dropped like a lead balloon from the sky down into the trees. You would think it would freak me out, but I wasn't frightened by it. I was just stunned.
I didn't get freaked out until I got home and Googled "Ball of white light dropping from the sky". That's when I found this site, and others, with all kinds of accounts of other people who have seen exactly what I saw in other places at various times.
I don't watch UFO television shows, there is nothing I could have seen or heard that would influence me subconsciously to come up with a story like that.
I watched the local news last night to see if anything was reported, but nothing.
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.
Also, please feel free to send in your sightings that have happened years ago. So many of these older sightings are nothing short of amazing.
