Nothing weird about Avnet... they sell components to companies all over the world... think of them as a distributor of electronic components.... You could order from them yourself if you wanted to.

Hey folks- gotta tell you something that I've been noticing this summer. I live west of milford, PA, and when I go out back on the deck to smoke I always look at the stars. Good viewing in the near darkness of the woods there. Anyway, when I read this I checked the google map and found the back deck faces almost exactly towards Carbondale. Kinda explains some weird things me and my girlfriend have seen on more than two occasions in that area of the sky, plus other areas.
I'm no idiot (at least that's my opinoin...), but I do work in quality. My education is to observe, collect data, analyze... I don't own a telescope (yet), and have no pictures. But I'm hoping someone can at least support the supposed evidence. I know, I know, no pics = didn't happen- I'm working on that. And I know what conventional aircraft look & sound like- see lotsa them. But this was different. Gave off green, blue, yellow red, & white colors, blinking similar to strobes, but more glowing than blinking...
First time was poor weather: overcast, thundering, raining: most definetely not helicoptor weather. Object hovered for about 1/2 hour, under the clouds. Glides a little left, then a little right, hovers for 5 - 10 minutes, slowly rises into cloud cover. Estimated distance? Wallenpaupack-Carbondale area. Poke fun at your will, I really don't mind. Just curious if anyone else is seeing weird stuff in NE PA...edit on 19-10-2011 by PaTommyJ because: WEST of milford, not east...dummy!edit on 19-10-2011 by PaTommyJ because: Correcting lots of fat finger errors...

There was a UFO *CRASH* in Carbondale in 1974 too.
Last week’s release of FBI documents finally put in writing what nobody had ever said on the record: The FBI suspected that former Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) and lobbyists close to him were running a scheme to funnel earmarks to sham companies and nonprofits to benefit the lawmaker’s friends and former staffers. Bits and pieces of this story were kicked around for years before Murtha died in February 2010.
The Los Angeles Times, Roll Call, the Washington Post and others had documented the odd appearance of earmarks for tiny defense contractors that just happened to open an office in western Pennsylvania and just happened to hire one of the lobbying firms close to Murtha and just happened to begin making campaign donations to Murtha and other Members of Congress close to him.
