LaGrange is Near the Shores of Lake Erie.

Date of Sighting: July 4, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10:45 PM EDT
Location of Sighting: West of Whitehead Road Near LaGrange, Ohio

Description: While doing an online search, I read with interest a reported sighting on July 4, 2009 at 10:30 PM from Put-In-Bay, Ohio. On that same night at approximately 10:45 PM my family and I were on our way back to a relative's home in Elyria after viewing fireworks in Rochester township. My husband and I spotted 4 lights hovering in the sky just to the west of Whitehead Road as we traveled down Whitehead Road between Route 18 and Route 303 in Penfield township, Wellington, Ohio. The lights formed a triangle in the sky, were white in color (as best as we could make out), and appeared to be slowly fading. We know this area to be in the landing pattern for Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, as we lived on Whitehead Road for 7 years. As such we also know these lights were NOT typical of any aircraft lighting we've ever noted in the sky. I tried to film them on our Panasonic DMC-TZ3 point and shoot, but the zoom and night features were not capable of capturing the image. The lights seemed to disappear one at a time. After approximately 90 seconds or so, they were gone.

Note: I don't know if this sighting is related to the sighting (and photo) at nearby Put-In-Bay, Ohio on July 4, 2009. The sightings were near the same time.
