Duration:just a few seconds
Unidentifiable object over Cleveland, Ohio

It was sometime between 2000 and 2045 HRS, I looked up into the sky and noticed an object flying in a pattern not common to commercial flights (most comm. flights fly east and west here - both directions, never northwest to southeast). It looked as if it was flying around 40,000 ft. (est.), and was in straight line motion. A small cloud cluster was moving into it's path below it (8,000-15,000 ft.). I was going to grab my camcorder, but didn't want to take my eyes off of it. As the clouds passed in front of the object, I expected it to reappear on the other side...but nothing ever emerged. I scanend the sky for a possible turn or movement in another direction, but there was just local traffic overhead around 2,000 to 4,000 ft. landing at our local airport. Viewing only lasted about 8-10 seconds before it vanished. Looking to the northwest sky, at about a 70-80 degree angle, from a location of 41.45903N / 81.70817W
