A few weeks ago, I posted a recent UFO sighting in Northumberland County, PA. This sighting was approx. 5-6 miles north of the Todd Sees incident location. The report is posted below:
2/17/2014 - I was driving my tractor trailer north on US15, approximately 4-5 miles south of the intersection of PA44. Straight above the Susquehanna River, to my northeast, also, in the direction of Watsontown, PA, I saw two bright white lights. They were probably about 1.5-2 miles away when I first saw them. Maybe even slightly farther. I thought it was an aircraft that had taken off from Montoursville regional airport, heading south. But as I drove further, I realized the lights were not moving. I would describe them as very bright white, large-looking headlights. They appeared to be pointing towards the river, as a beam projected from them straight down. I would guess the beam only projected about 25-40 from the craft, which was around 600-800 feet above the river. The entire duration of seeing it was probably about 3-4 minutes or so. I slowed my speed from 55-60 to low 40s once I realized the object was not moving. The truck seemed to drive itself as I got "lost" watching this. This may sound odd, but I had an overwhelming feeling that "nothing was going on". That's the best way I can describe how I felt.
There was nowhere for me to pull my truck over until a mile or so down the road, where I know of a small diesel station where I have been before. In hindsight, I regret not pulling into the shoulder to film it. I was able to capture a 20 second iPhone5 video of it. The video is shaky because I was still driving, and using elbows to steer. The object appears to be moving because the phone is bouncing everywhere. The object was definitely not moving though. When I pulled into the diesel station, trees and a ridge blocked any view I could have had.
I also pinned on an iPhone map where the object was. It is the PURPLE pin, not the red pin. Red pin denotes the town of Dewart, PA, which I simply searched as a starting place to pinpoint location. I am born and raised about 15 miles from this location, I drive the roads often, and am very literate with maps. The purple pin is an accurate location.
Before I filmed, I zoomed iPhones video camera because with no zoom it probably would not not have picked up the lights. Although the zoom does increase blurriness, it was necessary here. - MUFON CMS

Today (3/6/2014) I received the following information:
Lon, I think I may have recently seen the same lights the man in your lead story on this post saw hovering over the Susquehanna, this time a few miles south near Lewisburg.
On 3/3/14 about 8 pm I was traveling north on Housels Run Road to Montandon, which is directly across the river from Lewisburg. (This road branches off of Rte 405, which runs right next to the river, about a quarter of a mile from the intersection with Rte 147.) I saw these two bright white lights over the river, but since the local hospital has a helicopter, I didn't think much of it at first. After a minute or so I realized the lights were stationary and seemed odd. They didn't really "beam" down or anything, but they did seem to be "facing" down towards the river. I couldn't see any vehicle or anything in the darkness, and I didn't see any colored lights like you would on a helicopter. I didn't really think to pull over to get a better look or listen for sound.
Once I got to the intersection with Rte 45 I couldn't see it anymore because of the trees. I almost immediately thought of this article though. I am going to be driving that way again tonight, so you can bet I will be paying attention this time!
We are asking for information on similar sightings in this general area of Northumberland County, PA...in particular, the area along the west branch of the Susquehanna River along Rt. 405 and/or Interstate 15. Any information from the 1990's through present will be considered.
