Summer 1988 or 1999

Lancaster City, Pennsylvania U.S.

Date: Summer, 1998 or 1999
Time: Mid afternoon

Hey I read your article on Rense.com. I just wanted you to know that I saw a similar object, though it was about four years ago. I was on break at my job in my car and saw a cylinder type object floating in the air. It seemed to be spinning very slowly but hardly moved at all. I watched it for about half an hour. I thought it was a man on a parachute...but it was really high and stayed stationary! It was a very clear day so maybe it was a geo stationary satellite? never seen it since and never heard anything similar till now! Thanks...

Additional Information below:

It took place at my job on my lunch break. I work in Lancaster City, Pennsylvania U.S. The sighting took place in 1998 or 1999 in the summer during mid afternoon. That is as good as I can get it, sorry. It seemed to be slowly rotating, like spinning a pencil on your table top, but very slowly. Something like one revolution per minute or so. It also seemed to stay in the same spot or moving too slowly to notice, but it seemed to be moving in a southward direction.

It was cylindrical in shape, like a long can. It appeared to be white in color. It had to be big because it was so high up in the sky. At least as high as a Jetliner. Texture and sound, it could not be determined.

No aircraft, other than commercial Jetliners doing normal flights. It took place in or over Lancaster City. There is an airport in Lancaster, but no where near the sighting. No military installations around here. It was in the air for a while. I watched for at least 30 minutes. I can't say I believe it was an alien space craft, but I can say that I don't know what it was. I know it wasn't an airplane, helicopter, or a hot air balloon. I thought at first it was a man coming down on a parachute because of it's height and shape and its very slow movement. But I never got close to the ground. 30 minutes and it hardly moved at all. It was a very clear day though. Could it have been a satellite ? Hope this helped.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
