Sighting Reports 2009

Man Sees Diamond Shaped Craft Do "Figure 8's" in Daylight Sky

Date of Sighting: April 1, 2009
Time of Sighting: 3:15 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: Canton, Ohio

Description: At 3:15 approximately 3.5 miles away, and approximately 20 - 25,000 feet altitude, I saw what appeared to be a "B2" bomber. The craft was red (as the color of red on a black widow spider) on top and black on the bottom with a bright silver stripe separating the top and bottom. It was doing figure 8's north-to-south. There were cirrus clouds at approximately 40,000 feet, there was bright sunlight and 15-20 mile per hour winds. There were multiple aircraft flying from the Canton-Akron airport and Cleveland airport. A 737 passed under the craft and a 727 passed over it, approximately 1 mile away. I could hear the jets flying, but no sound from the craft. When looking straight on from the edge, it was diamond shaped top to bottom. It made 2 1/2 figure 8's, in the middle of doing the second half of the last figure 8, it disappeared. There was no smoke. I watched for another 5-6 minutes in the area, and there were no birds or kites. My guess is that the craft was about 500 feet from wing tip to wing tip. It was flying over the general direction of Alliance. Ohio approximately 20 degrees north of my position in Canton, Ohio.

Note: This is quite a report. The witness has provided considerable detail with angles, distances, locations, etc. Certainly one wouldn't expect B2 bombers to be executing figure 8 maneuvers over a populated area.
