From 9:14 PM to 10:21 PM on September 12, 2007, I observed a point of white light escorted by a flashing object while facing the southeastern sky on
the 11800 block of Jeanes Street in Far Northeast Philadelphia.
The point of light was slightly smaller than the size of the top of a standard plastic pushpin, did not blink, and was bright enough that rays of
light emitted from it. The point of light was at the same "level" in the sky as aircraft flying from the east, southeast, and south. The aircraft
were flying somewhere in between 10,000 and 20,000 feet.
The escort to the point of light was a small and what appeared to be circular object with flashing red, green, and white lights. I call this flashing
object the escort to the point of light because it was consistently below and slightly to the left (when facing the southeast) of the point, just
above the horizon. The escort's lights seemed to be flashing in a pattern. Red and green lights would flash alternately, and an elongated white
light would flash constantly during this alternating. The escort disappeared below the horizon just before the end of my observation, at about 10:16
It is unknown whether the point of light and the escort were mobile or stationary. As I do not know the direction of the Earth's spin, I could not
make a determination as to movement of these two items.
Does anyone visiting here at ATS have thoughts on the point of light and its escort I observed on the night of 9/12/2007? Information such as planets
visible from Earth that night and their position in the sky; military activity and observations; air traffic control data; and similar public
observations will be helpful and greatly appreciated.
I will be on jury duty on 9/14/07 and, depending on if I get selected, at trial next week. However, I will make every attempt to respond to
questions and comments about the event I described above as quickly as possible.
Thank you, ATS, for providing a forum to share and discuss this experience. Thank you, fellow posters and readers, for your responses and
