|Witnessed flyby by a craft composed of six perfectly round, bright lights.
At 21:15 on October 15, 1998, I was traveling west on I-90, approximately 2 miles west of the Crocker-Bassett exit. A light appeared at 10 o'clock which caught my attention because it looked to be an aircraft coming in for a landing. The problem with that was that Cleveland Hopkins Airport was 10 miles west of my position. I was traveling at 60 mph and the light maintained its 10 0'clock position throughout the sighting. It was a clear night and having lived within 5 miles of Hopkins Airport for the last 33 years I know what a plane looks like at night. As the craft passed overhead I heard no sound and could only make out six perfectly round, bright lights arranged in a circle. I did not see it land, but in 33 years of watching airplanes I never say a light configuration like this.
