One thing that gets me thinking is the fact that after 9/11, surely the US Air Force/NORAD should be scrambled in situations like this? Or do they really know what it is?
...people want to know if it is an alien ship whereas I would be wondering what the feck my government was doing with the billions of dollars the population spend on the defence of the country I lived in.
Is it just me that sees this?

MUFON has investigated this case and whatever can be said about it's internal politics, their investigators are pretty thorough. The MUFON guy who went to Lake Erie acknowledged that it was in roughly the same position as Venus at roughly the same elevation, but Venus isn't known for appearing orange & white, and apparently there were two objects visible when viewed through binoculars.
This is just my personal and incomplete astronomical expertise but I think Venus is only visible earlier in the evening or around dawn, and not for as long as this object/objects.
Stellarium and other such programmes are one of the first checks they run :- there are probably iPhone apps that do the same thing.
So it's unlikely to be Venus or a hoax.

8 nights in a row , and no one can set up a tri-pod?
This is a lousy light and lousy sighting.
You guys complaining about fuzzy videos.. How in hell can you take a clear shot of distant light in the night? It will always just be a blob of light unless you can get in closer which just isn't going to happen.
