Reported: 7/10/2005 7:44:18 AM 07:44
Posted: 7/13/2005
Location: Brook Park (W. Cleveland), OH
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Bright red light that disappeared quickly.

I looked into the southwestern sky and saw a bright red object. It was in the distance and was larger than a star. The object did nopt appear to move. After five minutes, the object disappeared briefly. I then noticed it quickly moving to the west and had the appearance of falling out of the sky. The movement was very rapid.

((NUFORC Note: We, at first, believed that the reports of a red light over the Brook Park, OH, area, might, in fact, be a possible hoax. A number of suspected hoaxed telephoned reports from Brook Park, OH, placed by young teenagers, on next day, included profanity and less than serious comments. However, we are reconsidering our position, given that a television station in the area of the sightings, as well as the local police, received a number of telephone calls, and written reports, about the event.

This witness reported over the telephone that the object ascended; he reports above that it descended. PD))
