As i was walking downhill, south on n. pearl st. near 1000 n. pearl st., in shamokin pa i noticed a very bright white light rapidly shoot straight up into the air above the city of shamokin. it took approx. 3 secs to move from ground level to above the city. it shot up, hovered for approx. 30-45 secs, then descended. i immediately started taking a video with my iphone which i uploaded here: https://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=4npiynhfcgm&feature=youtu.Be as i was watching this, my iphone rang and the video stopped. however, i was able to take a picture of the object as it descended, right before it became invisible from my location. it made no sound whatsoever. i have never seen anything like this in shamokin. there is very little air traffic in this area. a helicopter was spotted flying north approx. 30-45 minutes earlier, which is rare. the light flickered (as you can see in the video). it also appeared to flicker green and red for a few seconds during the sighting. i first thought this was a high end drone of some sort, but its brightness, lack of sound, and rapid movement helped push me to submit it.
