I was sitting in my back yard on July 5 around 10 PM. I live in the city , but there was not a lot on light wash in the sky . There was some high clouds and the moon was about 1/2. I was sitting listing to the fire works in the area and had my police scanner app on my phone running. I was looking in the sky and say an orange fire ball in the sky. I at first thought it was firework, but it never exploded. I then thought it was Stat Medavac going to UPMC Altoona. (I knew one was coming in via my scanner app on my phone) I then saw the helicopter coming from the south. This object moved from the south west to a northern track. I watched it for about 5 min and then is disappeared. I then went inside and told my wife and daughter about it. MY daughter said that it was on the news and facebook about an object like this earlier in the week. I looked it up and the video looks the same as what I saw.
