Sighting Reports 2009

Two See Light in Eastern Sky Move With "Stair Step" Motion

Date: January 15, 2009
Time: 9:30 PM EST
Location: Van Wert, Ohio

Description: When I first saw the object I thought it was a planet, but the more I watched there was no way it was a planet. It changed color from orange to reddish to yellow and back. I was using a good set of 10X binoculars to watch the object. It traveled too fast to be a planet moving due to Earth's rotation, but it was going too slow to be a jet. The object traveled about 10 degrees west in about ten minutes. I have seen homemade air balloons that use fire for lift as well. This looked way too big to be one of those. One other note, the outside temp was -9 degrees with a wind chill of about -30 wind from the west.

Note: Brrr it was a cold night to look at the sky! I believe that the witness saw Venus which is very bright in the western sky in the evening this month. I don't know that for sure because the witness did not specify the area of the sky where he saw the light.
