A fast moving object caused 6 cars to stop after it flew overhead.
At 10:05 AM, I was traveling north on Rt. 61 outside of Pottsville, and an object flashed overhead so fast you couldnít see anything but a blur, and its shadow for a mere second before it was beyond the trees.
Immediately after it flew overhead, the first few cars ahead swerved out of control, and all the other cars behind them including me came to a stop behind them.
After stopping I noticed when I tried to accelerate not only was my car shut off but the GPS unit and my cell phone was dead as well.
I stepped out of my vehicle along with 5 others that were driving along the same road to see if everyone was OK and report the incident, but all of our electronics were still out for 3 full minutes.
No cars were wrecked, but we were all very shaken up, I talked with the other drivers that also said they didnít see what the flying object was, but it startled them and cut out their electronics as well.
After the 3 minutes you began to hear cell phones turning back on and our cars were able to start back up, so we got into our vehicles and continued our travel.
I am a former army mechanic and I worked on several air bases, never have I seen something move so fast and silently, the other witnesses said it was a low flying jet and the sonic boom made the electronics go out.
But I know that you cannot fly a plane that low at that speed, and a sonic boom would have blown out our windows and ears.
Nothing that I know of other then an electromagnetic pulse could have done what this aircraft did.
After the incident I called several media centers to see if anyone else has reported seeing anything, but they refused to tell me.
