To be honest, the fine folks that call themselves the "UFO Hunters" need not be involved to legitimize this.
An earlier northeast Ohio UFO case gained public attention in the movies. It has been reported that the police chase of UFOs in the 1977 movie CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND was based on an incident on April 17, 1966, in Portage County. In this pursuit, officers from various police agencies followed a UFO into Pennsylvania

this is certainly one of the best UFO cases i have ever seen and the lack of responses in this thread is strange. what's even stranger though is there are no skeptics trying to debunk this case. i wonder why ? hmmm...
nice enhancements you did with the photos but i have to ask what you meant by this statement ?.....

You can clearly see on the bottom of this craft seems like it's either been rammed into a lot of things that caused a lot of dents or it's a crumpled fin foil like surface.
Like all the "FAKE" posts get a million hits but the could be "REAL" posts get maybe 30 to 50 hits?

I had a sighting this morning, from (my spot) the corner of the front yard. I was taking Lucy out for morning constitutional, and we were in the area where that little walnut tree stands in the pasture just north of our property and I looked at the sky (like every morning.) Weather conditions: 24� (-4� C), wind E 10MPH Barometer 30.04, Dewpoint 16� (-9�C), Wind Chill 15� (-9�C) VISIBILITY 10.0 MILES The object stayed in one place, ENE of my EXACT position where I was standing (Latitude 40.44397 Longitude -86.06995). I saw it for 4-5 minutes, starting at 7AM EDT. It never moved. It appeared to be a large, bright orange light, with a CHEVRON of orange light just above it. The CHEVRON gave off a pulsing characteristic, as the rays in the Chevron varied in length away from the peak. It was BY FAR the LARGEST AND BRIGHTEST object in the sky. I kept looking for aircraft lights, blinking, or for the object to turn which would indicate normal aircraft. That didn't happen. No additional lighting. The light remained orange, below, and the chevron rays above it. This was different than scintillation effect of celestial objects! This was at least a half hour before any dawn light rose on the eastern horizon. The sky was still completely black. The (crescent waning moon had set long ago), so there was no celestial light pollution/distortion. The object simply disappeared in the same spot. It never grew in size or shrank in size, indicating it never came closer or moved away from my position the entire time I viewed it. No sound. I would put the object in the vicinity of Kempton from the place I viewed it. It was the size and light magnitude of Jupiter (last night) at the brightest point when the moon was up (EXTREMELY BRIGHT LAST NIGHT). I woke my wife at 7:25 AM this morning. She had driven to her friends in Sharpesville last night and returned home after I already gone to bed. I immediately told her what I saw and gave her the description of what I saw. She said she saw the EXACT same thing hovering in the western sky, slightly south of Kokomo at 8:57PM. (She didn't tell me last night because I was asleep when she returned home.) Thick clouds have moved in (7:45AM) as I write this except for a clear ridge alondg the ENE horizon. The clearing is about 20� above the horizon (NOW), but the sky was completely clear and stars were plainly visible in every direction when I saw the object.

I returned to my upstairs bedroom on the front side of our house, and resumed watching television. I had my bedside window opened approximately 6", though my shades covered the gap. At 2:05 exactly, my (almost 15 year old) daughter and her friend were in a nearby bedroom talking. Her bedroom faces the rear of our home. There are no shades or blinds on her windows. The girls remarked that there must be a storm coming, as there were flashes visible in the upper edges of the windows, and appeared to emanate from the clouds/fog over the house. They then realized that the flashes were stationary and occurred in fixed intervals. As the girls looked more closely out the window, they were looking upward. They noticed that a large dark shape was moving over our 2 story home toward our backyard (west to east). The dark shape then dipped downward as it moved over the crest of our home toward our backyard (eastward), and was visible below the cloud/fog level, approximately 30 feet off the ground. As it moved slowly away, it became clear that it was triangular in shape, and had 3 lights along the back, flashing blue, red and green in varying patterns. The object emitted a low, pulsing hum noise that was audible from the girl's window. There were no loud or airplane/jet noises, or I would have heard them with my window open. I can only surmise that between my tv and my husband's snoring, I was unable to hear the very low noise. Behind our home is an open field that is used for farming. It is a large, open area with the nearest houses about 1/4 a mile away (guessing - not an absolute distance). There is an old barn within ~200 feet of our home that sits in the southwest corner of the open field. As the object moved away from our property, it reached the area of the barn and hovered briefly. It then slowly moved away toward the northeast, and suddenly disappeared. It appeared to the girls that the object was approximately the width of 2 houses in size. At 2:08am, near the far east edge of the field, 2 similar objects suddenly "winked on" and moved around one another for a brief period. They appeared to be the same types of objects as the one that moved over our home. Just as suddenly as they appeared, they seemed to "wink off" and disappear. At 2:10am, a new set of flashes were visible over the house, and they were similar in nature to the first set. As the girls watched, a much larger, and louder (humming) object moved over the crest of our home, following the same path that the first one did. This one appeared identical in every way, with the exception that it was so large that as it dipped over our home, the edges were not immediately visible. It had to move beyond the barn for the entire object to be seen. It was easily double or more the size of the first object. As it moved west to east, it slowed over the field, and then slowly seemed to rotate over a fixed area, and remained there for approximately 3-5 minutes. It was possible to see strobing lights on all 3 corners of the object, but the 3 lights in color were only visible on the �back� edge of the object. As the object sat in place, the 2 objects that had been sighted at 2:08 suddenly lit back up and began to move around, as if in response to the larger object close to our home. This continued for the last couple of minutes that the large object hovered. With no warning, all three objects just disappeared.
There's more to the sighting on the MUFON page. If true, WOW!
