I was driving on rt 11 in Factoryville, pa today around 2:45 pm ,It was sunny out almost 50 degrees (41.56951, -75.79923) heading west ,
I looked to the south west in the sky, about 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile away,(if you look on google maps it would be to the lower left were there is a
good track of woods and 3 pole lines running through the woods)
I notice something in the sky, I thought it was a hand glider,
It was shaped strange like a "v" flying backwards, and it had like a head and a neck sticking out ,
Then I saw it turning really tight and was thinking how cool it looked, then it started flapping it's wings and it freaked me out,
I never saw a bird look that big especially from that distance before.
I was trying to slow down but there were cars behind me and I would
have to go down the road and turn around and really was no where to pull over to see it again.
The shape while it was gliding was very strange, it seemed the wings tapered all the way down to nothing,
not to a tail. I'm 46 yrs old and lived and hunted in pa my whole life and saw turkey vultures, turkeys, great horned owls, cranes, and eagles. this
seemed much bigger than any of them.It really sank in how big it was as I drove down the road,there some crows flying about 75 yds away,they looked
like a spec compaired to the other one,at that was at least(probably farther) 800 yds .
