Location: Columbus, OH
|Light in the sky that moved at a high rate of speed and that changes direction five times
Half way up in the sky I saw a bright white light that moved at a high rate of speed and changed direction at least five times, very erratically. It only was visible for about five seconds before it went out of sight. It was in the direction of North East Columbus. It could only be, from its behavior, "Ball lightning" Or a UFO. But I have never heard of ball lightning in Ohio.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and he sounded quite credible to us. He was very eloquent, and he described his sighting in a very objective, factual, and unambiguous manner. PD))
