|Saw strange lights over lake Erie near Huron Ohio for about 2 hours.
Lying in bed watching TV i noticed a bright light that was moving in a strange way over lake Erie. The light was a bit like a rectangle, i assumed it was a helicopter. After watching for a couple of minutes I got up and went out on my balcony to look at it. I noticed another light accompanying the large bright light that looked like a very colorful Christmas tree. Both were moving in a way that did not make sense to me. I asked my wife to look at them and she could not figure it out ether.
I walked out side to the lakefront and began to watch the lights moving around at, I would guess 1000 feet above the lake. Over the next ten minutes the lights moved 5 miles away towards Huron to the west. I started looking up in the sky and saw around 50 to 100 of the Christmas tree light all over the sky. I then went and got a neighbor who has lived on the lakefront for about 30 years. He came outside and i pointed the lights out to him. we were looking at 2 of the lights that were in line with each other, one over the other. Trying to figure out what they were, guessing maybe airplanes that the lights were blurred from some kind of atmospheric condition. The sky’s over lake Erie can do some weird things. That is when the lower light which i would guess was 5 miles off the shoreline, shot strait up and to our perspective left the atmosphere. Or at least went out of site. Over the next hour or so the lights started to disappear. By ten o’clock I could not see anym! ore of them. We have no idea what we were watching. We both agreed we have never seen anything like it. My wife and daughter as well as my neighbors wife witnessed the lights.
