Description: At about 9:40 PM Thursday evening April 17th,2008 my husband said he saw the most peculiar object in the sky. He said there were three bright lights in a vertical shape that appeared in the eastern sky over our house that suddenly disappeared. I went to the back of our house and we were both looking at the sky when the lights appeared again. Only this time I saw it too. I saw three bright lights vertical, like a string of lights. Then the lights disappeared. Shortly thereafter there were many mini lights like small aircraft following the invisible object. These smaller lights seemed to circle around to try to locate the big lights. It was really freaky. Then we spotted the three enormous lights again, but this time they were horizontal and there were two of them. The mini lights seemed to be covering a vast amount of sky in seconds. They were moving too fast for ordinary aircraft. No sounds were from either of the sightings. Has anyone else seen this?

Comments: It is somewhat difficult to understand the unfolding of events of this sighting. Certainly the witnesses are describing something unusual. A later report of an unusual light was seen in the Cleveland area at about 1:30 AM on April 18.
