Bright red glowing object that hovered over Brookpark,Ohio

In Brookpark, Shortly after the Citys Homecoming fireworks had ended which was aprox. 11:00pm My wife went to my mother inlaws house which is less than a quarter mile from the place of the homecoming. at aprox. 11:30pm her Cousin was leaving my mother-in-laws house and upon getting into his vehicle with his wife and child seen this rather large red light hovering "above my mother-in-laws house. he imediately called inside the house and told them to "come out side, there is a UFO above your house" He proceded home to his house which is about 3\4 of a mile east of my mother-in-laws. After the phone call my Wife, 8yr old son, mother-in-law,Father-in-law,and his grand daughter, all went out on the patio to look. My Wife Immediately called me after deciding that it was not a plane or a star. I was at Our residence waiting for her to come home when I recieved the call. We live aprox. 2 miles east of my mother-in-laws.

When I looked up into the sky looking for what my wife was franticly describing to me, I found it immediately to the east of my location. My Nephew, His wife their two little kids, and My 12yr. old daughter all seen this Bright red glowing object that from my location looked to be a little bit larger than a star but much much more brighter, and it was very very red, about the same intensity that a red becon on a radio tower is but it stayed glowing bright red for about 10 min. and did not move. from my wifes vantage point she said it was "f'n huge" she said it was as big as my Chevy Blazer. and also said it was directly over the house. My Father in law also said it was very large, when I asked him if he held it out at arms length how big would it have been? he said about the size of a softball! They wathed it for about 10-15 min. when it started moving off to the west picking up speed as it got farther away. mean while I wathed it from my vantage point and watched it for 10-15 min. and then it slowly moved south, then it blinked a few times, got real dim, then it got real bright again and headed in a westerly direction at a very fast rate of speed till I lost it behind some trees obstructing my view. Mean while the cousin who first spotted the object had arrived home and was out watching it also. His observation was pretty much the same as mine except when it started to head off in the Westerly direction he observed it split into two peices. Which kind of makes sence to me because his street runs east to west and he would not have any trees obstructing his view. Incidently, Brookpark,Ohio borders Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. and My mother-in-law lives less than a mile and a half from the airport. The flight path of this thing would have been within a half mile of the airport. The next day one of the news statons reported the UFO along with a pixelated still photograph. and a report from some local astronomer that what everybody saw was actually the suns reflection off of the international space station. Bull Crap! This thing hovered, moved left to right and then off into the distance. And I know for a fact the Brookpark police were bombarded with phone calls on this thing and they had no idea what it was.
