location: gettysburg. front porch of house having a smoke.
direction of flight: sw
speed: would guess somewhere in the range of 800 mph and up. traveling very low but not so fast you couldn’t keep track of it.
shape: straight line w/ a slight curve. was still dark so i couldn’t get a good look at it.
brightness: very very bright maybe as bright or brighter than one of those million watt candle power flashlights.
length: if you would of held up a yard stick to it. it probably would have covered it. to me it appeared to be between 800 to 1000 feet long.
maneuvering: i seen this bright line of lights coming from the se heading directly over gettysburg at least 800 to 1000 feet up. i thought it was a jet or plane so kept watching it because of how very low it was and all these lights in a row. it then turned slightly heading my direction which was northerly but just a few seconds in its turn, it turned right back toward a sw direction toward fairfield with no difficulties whatsoever, for the size of the craft.
sound: a very low humming sound. at first i thought it could have been a large jet, but at that close of a distance and height, the engines would have been roaring and most definitely you would have been able to identify it as being a jet.
appearance: all i can say it was a basic line with a slight curve with at least 10 to 12 lights, all bright bright white. no red, no blue, and none blinking.
