I live about an hours drive from Euclid, so upon hearing this story and watching the MSNBC video my 10 yr old son and I decided to take a trip up to
Euclid to see what the heck was going on. I didn't hear about this until today, from ATS initially, I dunno where I was the last few days or where
the news was that I was missing it but I did get to go up there today.
We headed up about 7:00 which put us in Euclid at around 8:00, I'm not terribly familiar with the area so after driving around for a while on
Lakeshore Blvd, we found a wildlife preserve with a boat launch section where we could get right up the the lake.
Coming from an hour south I did not expect the drastic change in temperature we experienced upon getting there. It was cold! Lake Erie is clogged with
ice, and our unseasonably warm and sunny temperatures of the past week had deserted us. It was cold, raining and the sky was totally cloud covered,
typical Ohio weather for march but not good for UFO sightings.
My son and I decided to take a walk along the quay which leads out to the lake and past all the lights, we met another couple there who were also
looking for it, I don't think they were ATSer's as I dropped ATS in our brief conversation and they didn't seem to recognise it. Anyway we walked
out along the quay and watch the sky to the north east. Behind the cloud cover was a definite light, orange and fading to white, with seemingly
My son was ecstatic and telling me how he saw it it was moving and changing colors etc. I will say it was very hard to see, we were in no way prepared
for the weather in sweatshirts and tennis shoes when we needed parkas and boots, so we did not stay long. We hurried back to the car and tried to find
a better vantage point about 40 block east but did not find a good spot.
Now I don't know what we saw, but it didn't seem to be a normal plane light. like I say it was behind the cloud cover and so was very difficult to
see, maybe we did just see a plane, but I'll tell you my son had a blast, we called my mom and dad and my brother and sister and wife so he could
tell them about his adventure.
I'm sure some trolls will come along and find things to pick apart in this story, but I really don't care, we had a great time, saw something we
couldn't readily explain and had a great dad-son time, even though we did freeze. My camera is crap to being with so I didn't even try to get
photo's you wouldn't have been able to see anything anyways.
I have a friend of mine who's a pro photographer, and who may loan me a nice video camera for a return trip up to the lake on Monday or Tuesday when
the weather is supposed to be nice. If the sightings continue, I'll tell you now we're gonna go back up and try to get a video or photos. For what
it's worth, I have no idea what we saw, or what has been seen, but it was a cool experience.
