Location: Reynoldsburg, OH
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:10 minutes
On this night, I noticed a cylinder shaped illuminated object in the southeast sky. At first I thought it was a portion of the moon with the rest being onscured by clouds. At second look, I realized that it was a clear night and there were no clouds. I realized that it was some type of object that was moving slowly across the sky from southeast to northwest. I watched it for about 5 minutes before calling my 14 year old son outside to look at it. We watched it for another five minutes. The object was lit by a clear light that was constant. No blinking or other lights. It moved horizontally across the sky at a very slow speed. Towards the end, the light seemed to slowly diminish and it just faded away.

((NUFORC Note: We wonder whether the witness might have observed a contrail behind a high-altitude aircraft. Just a guess. PD))
