- The complaintant called dispatch and indicated that he
was observing a

- the lights as being clustered together and multi-coplored.
- As I responded to the area of the call, I first observed
- of lights as I was on the west end of the bypass. They
- be red, green, white or yellow in color. I continued
south on SR 53
- and then west on SR 12. The lights did not appear to
be getting closer,

- FURTHER INVESTIGATION:
- The witness, whose name, address and phone number was
listed in the
- police report [deleted for privacy], was contacted this
- 9:00 p.m.
- While requesting that his name not be used in any report,
he went on
- to explain that his wife and daughter had also saw the
- as well. The objects, he said, were visible from around
- until almost 2:00 a.m.
- "They were not stars," the witness assured
soundly, "they were
- cigar-shaped, oscillating lights. Several of them were
- out to the west of us sitting in a triangular pattern.
- not airplanes or helicopters.
- "One that was closest seemed to have a white light
underneath and other
- light on top. We did not see any structure, they were
too far away, but
- we could see that there was some shape to them.
- "The most I ever saw at one time was about 5 or
6 of them, most of
- the time there were 3 in a triangular pattern. Each individual
- would be visible for a lengthy duration of time, and
would move around
- in different parts of the sky. One moved to the east.
They were not on
- the horizon at any point."
- When asked again about the possibility that the witness
- been observing twinkling stars, he stated: "These
- traveling the wrong way for stars. Stars were disappearing
in the west,
- the objects we saw traveling in all different directions,
some to the
- east. In the beginning when they were closest to us we
heard a hum."
- The daughter, who also came to the phone and discussed
- described a quiet, low noise heard while the objects
were closest to
- their location. The humming sound was not high pitched,
but a somewhat
- low, steady droning noise.
- The objects were still visible at 2:00 a.m. when the
- decided to retire to bed, even though they were farther
off in the
- "I have no idea what this was," the witness
said, "I've seen twinkling
- stars before, there is no way this was stars. They were
- or oblong lights and made a humming sound."
- The witness, who does not own a camera, said that he
had "the shit"
- scared out of his family because of the incident. When
asked why they
- were alarmed, he said: "We've never seen anything
like this before."
- The witness contacted the Sandusky County Sheriff's Office,
- report but did not respond to him otherwise. "They
never came out,"
- he said.
