Three white lights in a vertical formation, northeast of State CollegeI feel foolish for not submitting this sighting the day I had witnessed it. But seeing the recent reports in the northeast about three lights travelling so close together around the time of my sighting, I feel compelled to submit a report of what I saw.I don't remember the exact date, but it was around the last week of July, perhaps July 26th. However, I do know that it was between 5:30 and 5:40 A.M., because this is the time that I go to work.Details: As I was headed northeast on I-99, I noticed three bright lights in the northern sky, only several degrees above the horizon. These lights remained very close to one another in a vertical formation, never separating more than about one degree from the other. The movement of the formation was very slight, but there was definitely movement.The lights were bright white, almost silvery. I could not distinguish a tail or anything of the sort. As an amateur astronomer, I know for a fact that they were not planets because they were well north of the ecliptic.Conditions: Seeing conditions on this morning were clear. During this time frame, it had been very hot in my area, with highs from the upper 80's to the mid 90's, and lows from the mid to upper 60's.If you could mark my position on Shiloh Road, looking toward the northeast drawing a straight line, the line would pass over Pleasant Gap, State Game Lands 295, and Williamsport. There was no way for me to guess the distance of the formation.Hopefully, someone saw the same thing and can corroborate this sighting. If you did see something that closely matches the details of my sighting, don't be shy and *don't be afraid* - REPORT IT.((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD))
