Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes
3 red light triangle which broke into single lights then more red lights and a possible bigger craft.

Saturday, 8/24/19, 9:40pm EDT over the West Side of Cleveland. I was sitting outside doing a fire pit in my back yard with one of my neighbors. I'm in the West Park area of Cleveland, but almost in Brook Park, not far from Hopkins Airport. My neighbor was sitting facing the right direction, ENE, to see it first. I was facing N. She said, "Hey, look at THAT, behind the trees!" There was a triangular formation of 3 steady solid red lights. I'd guess ENE at about 55 degrees on the compass, and maybe 25-30 degrees above the ground. I think the triangle was pointing down, with the 2 lights on top, and 1 below. Was so excited, I don't remember for sure, but definitely was a triangle. She can't recall either. The formation finally came over the trees, but was much higher up, going WSW about 250 degrees and seemed high in the sky. They were completely silent. Took maybe a minute or less to transverse the sky, I don't know how high up they were.

I would say the triangle was the width of 2 full moons. The formation broke up into the lights being side by side after being just overhead, but a little to the north, and got dimmer and somewhat translucent as it went toward the WSW. 2 more red lights came from the ENE, side by side, and went the same way, then 2 more dimmer ones the same way. Then my neighbor then said, "Look", pointing slightly in the WSW direction, I couldn't see it. maybe my eyes couldn't adjust looking over the bright fire pit, but she said a round red light maybe 20X as big, she called it "the mother ship" but she said it was very dim and could hardly see it herself, with the other red lights surrounding it, all moving WSW and just faded as to the WSW she said. I thought all the lights were faded and gone by the tine she seen the big dim one. Looked to me on the ones I could see, they were going just maybe slightly north of Hopkins Airport and still high in the sky.

The West Side and maybe downtown had to see it. I tried video recording it on my phone, but my screen was pitch black, phone not good in the dark. Later on I seen at one point I got 2 faint dots, what I assume were the top 2 lights, the bottom light must have been hidden by the trees. That's all I got as nothing showing in my viewing screen to aim at as it was moving.
