A Pennsylvania witness at Perkiomenville reported three bright, orb-like UFOs that hovered and moved near the Limerick Generating Station, according to April 2, 2014, testimony in Case 55163 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was photographing the sunset on January 1, 2014, when three "very bright lights" were noticed just west of the Limerick Generating Station along the Schuylkill River in Limerick Township, Montgomery County, northwest of Philadelphia.

"I thought it may be something out of the ordinary," the witness stated. "Never saw lights that bright in the sky before. The objects seemed to be round spheres that at first didn't move at all. The center one seemed slightly raised above the outer ones. They were intense bright white - almost silver."

By the time the witness got his camera out and ready to shoot, one of the objects had moved from a "dead stop" to the right, and one had moved left toward the nuclear power plant.

"At this point in time I was getting pretty excited at what I was witnessing. I lost sight of those two and the center one remained traveling towards me."

The witness was able to capture a photo of the orb that moved toward his location. Two images were included with the MUFON report: Image 1 and Image 2. The second image is an enlargement of the object captured in the first image.

The witness remained at the site another 20 minutes, but did not see the objects again.

"The one picture I did get shows structure."
