|Halloween lights over Parma Ohio
Its Halloween and I’m standing outside waiting for the kids to come by and I look to the south over the tree-line admiring the clear beautiful night it ended up being and I see a orange/red light in the distance.
At first I think, what a strange colored light, considering Parma has moderate flight traffic due to the Cleveland International Airport.
As it nears, I realize I see no flashing lights to designate it as a commercial or private plane, but the level of brightness the globe indicated to me it was low flying and at a pretty good speed.
By the time it passed me, the globe of light was equally as bright from the back as it was from the front and I could see no definition of an object being present like one could observe from the multitude of passing planes heading in or taking off from the airport.
There was also no sound as it passed. I attempted to rationalize this as a very high flying object but the brightness of the light was too vibrant to be some! thing as high as I think a plane would have to be to mask any sound or to have the clarity of light.
The color was off as well, and the fact that there was no blinking signal lights was also strange to me. It was heading north, and I lost sight of it after it passed beyond my roofline.
