UFO Sighting in Cleveland August 20th, 2014, 10:00pm EST.

Roughly 10:00 pm EST, on August 20, 2014, my boyfriend and I saw what appeared to be a bright star/sphere like light object, traveling from the west heading east across the sky. The visibility of the sky was completely clear of any clouds, making all the stars and airplanes visible to the naked eye.

The appearance of the object my boyfriend and I saw was much brighter, and larger than any star. The object was traveling at the rate of which seemed to be a fast airplane, but had no blinking lights, as all of the airplanes seen in the sky flying at the same time had.

The object headed to what seemed to be directly across the sky right over us, bearing no sound, and suddenly appeared to change direction heading south in the sky; away from us, toward a star in the sky. We continued to watch it closely, almost in dismay; captivated, as the object still had no sign of any blinking lights and had no change in its form; staying a consistent bright sphere of light.

The object appeared to then not just be flying south, but straight up toward the star just south of us. As we watched my my boyfriend stated “look it’s starting to fade”, and then right before our eyes the object just disappeared; which happened in seconds.

I was absolutely dumbfounded, the object appeared to be there in the sky one moment and then what I would describe as it telescoping, farther straight up in the sky, and as it did so, it seemed to have a reddish color as it vanished into the sky. Something like out of a movie, as a star ship might go into hyper drive, and all you see is the afterburners of its jets. The whole occurrence lasted about 60 seconds, to a minute and a half long. Regretfully, I have no footage as my boyfriend and I describe to one another as being memorized, trying to figure out what exactly it was we were looking at, which when the object eerily disappeared in seconds from the sky, we had both agreed that what we had just seen was a UFO.
