Location: Cleveland, OH
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 minutes
Large fiery orange ball/cylinder of light hovering for 4-5 minutes near Lake Erie on the west side of Cleveland Ohio

I was out looking at the moon because I had heard tomorrow was supposed to be a super moon.

Out of nowhere, the bright orange light appeared. Small at first, but I thought maybe it was a planet (saturn, venus)and that the clouds moved away. But the orange light grew bigger, then hung in the sky right in front of my house, above some pine trees. If I had to estimate the distance, it was probably about where a helicopter would fly.

The orange light was like a fireball so I thought maybe it was a meteor but it didn't move. It also looked like it had an orange light beam coming from it. Its shape was almost like that of a flood light, like square cylinder shape but fiery orange.

I ran to get my camera, and of course, just like on tv shows, my camera froze. It gave me a creepy feeling, like it was observing me.

I then noticed it started to shrink, but then realized it wasn't shrinking, it was heading west. It had to have been moving quickly to shrink out of site! that fast.

I am about 4 blocks from Lake Erie and it was heading west. I just didn't feel right, didn't seem like a natural phenomenon. Very strange and uneasy feeling..
