Posted: 2/5/2003
Location: Lancaster, OH
Shape: Cigar
Duration:10 minutes
We watched a cigar/cylinder shaped object about ten degrees above the horizon.

While driving along state route 188, we witnessed an amber light in the western sky, apon stopping several miles down the road, we viewed the object through both a pair of binoculars and video camera. To The plain eye, the object looked like an amber star, however, through the camera we could see the object was a cigar shaped object through a 50X zoom. For several minutes, about ten degrees above the horizon, we watched the object slowly turn from a amber color to a deep red. Slowly, the object became very dark and disappeared over the horizon, behind some trees.
