A few minutes ago I stepped on to the back steps to have a smoke; yeah it's a bad habit.

But,  what I saw in the cloudy skies  above was baffling. Nearly a dozen "balls" of light where twirling through the sky with  totally random  patterns. There were no beams of light coming from ground level to suggest spotlight(s) were involved. 

Has anyone in the NW Centra PA area experienced similar sightings?

A "smoke" eh?  What kind of "smoke"? devil

I would guess gnats illuminated by some light source.

...or... you could be going crazy.

I have seen spotlights show up on light overcast without a visible beam below, especially if they are some distance away.

I've seen weird E36 M3 in the sky. Ball of light. Didnt move with time so not a celestial body. Too high to be a blimp or hovering helicopter.  I do NOT believe it was extraterrestrial. There is a logical explanation, I just haven't found it yet.

Someone playing with drones?

this landed in South West PA back in the 60s. Military came and took it away, then came and took all my grandfather's film the next day when someone found out he'd photographed it for the papers, which was his job at the time.
