ufo over lake erie in brood daylight / 1996

I was 17. Where I lived on Lake Erie I had a view that directly west you could see Fermee 2 nuclear power plant in Michigan and directly south on a clear day I coul see the nuclear power plant with one stack, in Ohio. Just west of sandusky ohio.

I was alone at 17 my parents were on afternoons and I was watching a storm over lake Erie, hoping to see a ship on the water get struck by lightning.

There it was in broad daylight a cheesy looking 50's style ufo it was a dull gray.

I looked at it, it was there there was no denying it. It was halfway between my house and an island between were I was and the Ohio shore. The thing that made it real was when lowflying clouds in the storm blowing under it. It did not move.

I looked at it and it did not go away, I made my dinner going back and forth and it did not go away. As soon as I took it for granted 20 minutes later is was gone.

I never really thought about it till recently, so I am not 100% sure on the day that month.

The reason I finally found an interest in it, when peoples discriptions on coast to coast am.

The other thing that botherd me recently was that I had just started to learn about sleep paralysis in the last year.

When I lived out there in colchester ontario these kind of sleep patterns emerged around that time, that were so intense that my family, friends and even doctor didn't know what I was talking about.

I moved to Windsor ontario which is a major city directly south of detroit it went away.
