Two UFO Sightings Reported Over Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania During
The Past Week

There have been two UFO sightings reported in the skies over the
Pittsburgh area during the last week.  I am awaiting further
information on both reports.

Date: April 21, 1999
Time: 9:15 P.M.
Location: West Mifflin,PA/Pittsburgh suburb
Report: The observers live near the flight path of an airport,
and are familiar with seeing various types of aircraft at night.
The occupants of a car say they saw an object that was described
as looking like an 1/8  slice of pizza, flying with the crust
end forward. This front section was reportedly covered with
numerous white non-blinking lights.  Witnesses could only see
the silhouette against the sky.  The nearly triangular shaped
object was reportedly seen in the sky at the same time that an
aircraft, believed to have been a commercial airliner was moving
towards Pittsburgh.  According to one of the viewers, the object
was above the airplane, and it stopped as the aircraft continued
on it's course. Then suddenly the object began to pace the
aircraft, and quickly caught up to it.  During an interview, I
was told that the object was then in a diagonal position with
the plane.  A bright beam of light was then emitted from the
side of the object, and was directed on the aircraft. This beam
of white light which at first was narrow, began to expand, and
it reportedly completely illuminated the airplane.  Seconds
later, the beam of light vanished.  The witnesses at that point
pulled into a driveway, and lost sight of the event, while
asking another person to come outside.  When the other person
came out, all that could be seen was a bright light moving in
the distance.


Date: April 25, 1999
Time: 7:25 P.M.
Location: South Park/Pittsburgh
Report: The witness is a professional who works in a scientific
field. He had recently started a photography course.  He was out
on a photographic class project, shooting some landscape shots
when the sighting occured.  He observed a V  formation of six or
seven lights moving east above the moon.  The lights were an
orangish-pinkish-white color, very luminous and non-blinking.
They were slow moving, and the last lights were observed at 7:35
P.M. The witness did attempt several photographs of the light
formation, and is awaiting development of the film.

If anyone else has had any recent similar reports please let me
know.  Any additional information on these reports, as well as
other 1998 and 1999 UFO sightings from Pennsylvania, will be
updated on my web page, in the near future.
