On August 25th, 2014, a woman by the name of Stephanie Wilkerson believes she filmed a UFO flying over her neighborhood in Lower Paxton Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. Stephanie says that while she was sitting on her porch Monday evening, she was enjoying a glass of wine when she noticed a peculiar light in the sky. At first, she thought it was an airplane, until she realized it wasn’t moving. She watched it for about 20 minutes and then the light started changing colors and moving. She called her husband to come look at the strange light, and several minutes later, she’d gotten her neighbor to come out as well. Stephanie’s neighbor was “amazed” and he went and got his binoculars. “He thought it was a planet,” Stephanie said. “until it turned yellow right before our eyes.” She was able to capture the light on video on her cell phone, and in it, we see what looks to be multiple flickering orange lights flying high up in the night sky.
Stephanie eventually called the Lower Paxton Township Police. An officer came out and witnessed the strange light for himself. He called his superiors, and they too saw the light. One officer called the Fort Indiantown Gap and Harrisburg International Airport, hoping to hear if either had aircraft flying in the area, but both reported no flight activity at that time. Stephanie, who wasn’t a believer in UFOs, says that this experience has now made her a believer. This isn’t the first time someone has seen a mysterious light in Lower Paxton Township. One man claims he saw the same light a few days earlier on August 22nd, 2014.
It definitely sounds like this could’ve been a real UFO. The fact that the object was completely stationary for about 20 minutes before it started moving and changing color definitely rules out the possibility of a plane. A neighbor did say that her husband also saw the light, and he thought it was a helicopter, but I don’t think that’s what it was either. It’s a shame that the quality of Stephanie’s video wasn’t that great. It does look like there were multiple lights in the sky during certain parts of the video. However, despite the fact that this sounds like it could’ve been a real alien craft, we still have to consider the fact that this could’ve been something of Earthly origin.
Some have theorized that the witnesses could’ve been looking at a Chinese lantern. Judging by the video, the light(s) do somewhat look like Chinese lanters, but it’s hard to say for sure. Others have theorized that this could’ve been a RC drone. In recent months, that’s become a very popular theory for UFO sights, and some do fit that bill, but in this case I don’t think it’s very likely that this was a drone due to how visible the light(s) was at the distance it was seen at, which looks to be pretty far. Personally, I’m not sure what to make of this case. On one hand, I do think this could’ve indeed been a real UFO. The testimonies, and even the video, sound believable and genuine. But, I do think there there is a slight possibility that this might’ve been something like a Chinese lantern, or even an RC drone. Those are just my thoughts, and I’m very interested to hear what you think about this case. Do you think these people actually saw an otherworldly craft? Or is there a more conventional explanation?
