Location: Mansfield, OH
Shape: Oval
Duration:3 minutes
Very bright, reflective,gold, oval object low in the night sky

At 2:22 AM on January 5, 2014 and Un-identified object hovered in the night sky in the south end of Mansfield, Ohio, close to Rt. 13 & I71. The object was oval shaped, very bright and reflective. It appeared to be of a gold hue and did not move. It had lines or slashes in the exterior going from the top right to the bottom left. It hung very low in the sky.

I have lived in this area many years. I let my dog out at night and consistently take note of my surrounding, as there are coyotes known to attack. I also watch constellations and weather nightly and never has this object been seen by me or anyone that I am aware of in the neighborhood.

I viewed it from different windows facing South and South/East. As easily as it was seen it also disappeared, much like shutting off a light; it did not take off or whisk away.

There was snow accumulation on the ground; the temperature was in the low 20’s. There was no precipitation. A frigid record cold setting forecast is predicted in less than 24 hours.
