Location: Cleveland, OH
Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour
My husband and I went to the "flats" in Cleveland (restaurants and club scene that line both sides of the Cuyahaga River...Left Bank and Right Bank. It was Thursday, and not alot of activity was taking place which felt strange. Only one club on each side of the river seemed to be open...with music and people..about 12 club/restaurants were closed... Any way...as we walked from the west bank toward the right bank, we stopped to glance at the view. As we stood looking, I looked up and noticed a white fuzzy light above us traveling in an oval shaped pattern, and each time it revolved at the right end it sort of "flashed" slightly and without stopping, continued it's revolution. I mentioned it to my husband as it looked to be part of the low cloud coverage (it was very cloudy that evening)....or "above" and in the cloud itself. He thought it was caused by party/search lights, but there was no line of light source to this moving light. I watched it circle above me, and it appeared to cover about 60 feet from where I stood...I do not know how low it was..and that is strange because the clouds were low, but...it was as high as the cloud....I am a skywatcher, and it just gets me that hardly anyone looks up at the sky. As we proceeded to walk to the right bank, the "light" followed us. We crossed a bridge, we walked across a very long empty parking lot....still above us. We went into a club...and walked out the back...there it was above us. We walked to the back and stood out on the dock...there it was. We stayed awhile, and it just kept "circling" with it's flash.....I was a little nervous about it. When we decided to back track and walk back to our car (same distance), it did the same thing. My husband just ignored it, and that was a little weird...I thought maybe he just did not want to know any more about it....I decided to stop looking at it. I never mentioned it to anyone at the club because they would probably laugh at me....but when we were on the "dock" patio...the people out there were just dancing or drinking or talking and not paying attention. It seemed strange that no one would look up...anyway...I cannot figure this one out...My rational mind is trying to reason it out...but this light had an intelligence about it. I could only make a shape from the precise and constant pattern of the light...it illuminated the clouds and had no sound.
