The Ohio, Winsor, ONT & Pennsylvania Aug 25th 1995 UFO/Meteor incident. I witnessed this event and was really close to Lake Erie at the time. 20 years old, (in the military at the time) approximately 1AM I was outside looking north toward lake Erie. Location was Oregon, OH on Corduroy Rd at my grandmother's house, next to Corduroy Carryout, just a few miles from the lake. I grew up near Lake Erie and know it very, very well. I am e-mailing a screen shot of my location, vantage point and my projection of this object across Lake Erie. I was so amazed by what I witnessed, I called Oregon,OH Police Department and Northwood,OH Police Department.

The object appeared to be very large and was moving only a couple hundred miles per hour (Meteors move much faster as you know). As it moved from west to east over the lake, it illuminated a very bright blue and had a significant tail behind it. I read the news reports that a Meteor crashed into a mobile home community in Windsor ONT. That could have been fallen debris.

https://www.ufoinfo.com/news/windsor.shtml Those news reports NEVER made sense to me because from my vantage point, it was heading straight toward Cleveland and Pennsylvania. Listening to Director Peter Davenport’s interview on the 'X' Zone Radio Show podcast, enlightened me what happened after fireball was out of my sight near Cleveland Ohio. This UFO continued its flight and activity long after it crossed into Erie PA area. Multiple witnesses and reports from Pennsylvania. Hope my contribution to this sighting helps fill in more blanks!
