Further Description of Sighting: On 09/19/2009 between 8:50-8:55pm (actual time verified after event was 8:58pm EST) while walking down the dirt road 100 yards from my driveway in a southbound direction with my daughter and her friend, Sami (my daughter, 15yoa) joking with me saying “Look! That’s the brightest star in the sky!” I said it’s not a star….no twinkle, twinkle, there; it’s a planet. At the time I told her it was Venus, but after getting to the house and accessing my Starry Night program, the only visible planet to the eyes was Jupiter. Well, back to the incident.
After I glanced up and told her it wasn’t a star, I looked back down at the road; seconds later, she says “LOOK DAD THAT’S SOOO WEIRD!” I looked, and what I saw was an upside down funnel shape; white hazy in color, (like a flashlight pointing down inside a hazy white Smokey shade that extended downward; no movement, no clouds, and no noise). Before fading into the sky, the bottom center of the cone seemed to change position from 6 o’clock to 4 o’clock, the top still anchored in the same position. My daughter saw a dark cloud above the shape, I didn’t notice it. I can’t estimate the distance with any accuracy but was very far off in my opinion.
I live so far off the road there is no background noise. I am Located N- 41 ° 42’ 300” W- 78 ° 38’ 712”, near Mount Jewett, Pennsylvania. The shape was a little lower and to the right; a couple finger widths of Jupiter in the Capricornus Constellation; Jupiter’s elevation is about 20 degrees approximately. You could see an aircraft heading east very far up in atmosphere with marker lights blinking barely visible, just after incident; by comparison the cone was huge. The image is something I made with Photoshop fyi, just to jog the memory; it happened so fast.
