As of 11:57 PM EST, WGAL TV in Lancaster, PA, was reporting that a damaged area had been found in a cornfield that appeared to be related to an object that crossed northeastern US skies at approximately 6:20PM EST today.
The damaged area is in a cornfield along Route 973, west of Anthony Township. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has not found any environmental problems. No debris was located, and officials theorized that a fireball had touched the surface without leaving anything behind. Further tests are scheduled today.
The object that crossed the skies was easily visible even in the light of a summer evening, and the sonic booms were tremendous.
A number of reporters observed the phenomenon.
