I received a report on my UFO Hotline from a woman who sounded shaken after observing a strange aerial device a short time before. The woman was inside her home when she saw red and green lights reflecting off the surface of a lake about 50 feet away. The witness at first thought that there was a thunderstorm occurring. Upon looking the witness said she could see some stars in the sky.

Looking out the window she observed a "perfectly round" object with red and green lights hover over the lake for about 30 seconds. The bottom of the object was lit up. The object suddenly took off straight up and according to the woman "in the blink of an eye it was gone." The woman reported that her two cats seemed frightened at the time, and ran out of the room.

The woman says that she had seen TV shows about UFO's, but she had never seen anything like this before and said "it really scares the s--- out of you." I will be obtaining more information on the sighting.

I also received another report from the Pittsburgh area of a sighting several hours before of an object which appeared to explode into many bright fragments.

I have also received information on a sighting which occurred July 14, 1998 near Hollidaysburg in Blair County, PA. A man driving on Route 22 around 10 P.M., observed three blue-white triangular lights that formed an inverted V position, and which appeared motionless for about 45 seconds.

The witness slowed down to see the lights better, and as he watched them hover, they suddenly exploded and were gone from sight. I am awaiting more information on this case as well.

Over the last couple of months I have had a few reports where the witnesses use the term "explode" to describe an object in the process of disappearing from the sight of the observer.
