Sighting Reports 2006

Man Sees Hovering Large Triangular Shaped Object

Date of Sighting: December 26, 2006
Time of Sighting: Approximately 7 to 9 PM EST
Date Reported: December 27, 2006
Duration of Sighting: Unknown
Location of Sighting: Mentor, Ohio (25 Miles Northeast of Cleveland)
Latitude: 41.69 Degrees North
Longitude: 81.32 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Cloudy Skies. Cloud Bases Varied Between 3,600 and 4,000 Feet From 7 to 9 PM EST. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the Northwest at About 15 MPH.

Description (In Witness's Own Words): It seemed to be a low-flying plane at first, but the closer I got in my car, the more I realized that it wasn't moving at all. It was triangularly shaped, had flashing lights (white, and a couple red), but it was way too low and large to be a plane not to mention that it was not moving at all. There is no tower anywhere nearby.

Investigator's Notes: This case would at first seem to be a sighting of a conventional aircraft. However, the witness should have seen red, green, and white lights. (Aircraft have a red light on the left wing and green light on the right wing. White lights are underneath the aircraft). The sighting was close to Cleveland Lost Nation Muncipal Airport (LNN). (See map above.) Sometimes people can mistake moving aircraft as hovering because of distance, but given that the aircraft appeared large to the witness, this is an unlikely scenario. Given available information I am not sure what the witness saw.

This Case Was Investigated by a Local UFO Group (Cleveland Ufology Project). Their conclusion follows: (LNN) is nearby where this sighting took place. Although flashing lights were seen which is typical of aircraft, the description that the object was a large triangle, low to the ground and not moving is anomalous.

Another UFO was seen one week later in the same general area by a different witness.
