Location: Highlandtown Lake, OH, USA

Shape: Disk

disc-shaped craft at high altitude over highlandtown lake.

it occurred when i was sailing on highlandtown lake, but i did not have my damn camera. the date is only an estimate, roughly around that day, but i remembered the time it happened...and the details are clearly remembered and are thus: it was at a higher altitude than the jets, and larger, and moving much faster. (i would estimate the speed at slightly above the sound-barrier, but it did not make a sonic boom, could have been too high.) the object was round, and black, and cast a round shadow that was probably at least 300-500 feet in diameter on the thin wispy cloud layer it was above, it may have been perhaps at 30-50,000 feet. there were lower aircraft at the time, perhaps ten to 20,000 feet, but not in same area.

it traveled in a straight line, nearly perfectly north to south, then began to turn to the south-southeast. there were multilayered cloud formations. large cumulous clouds were developing, though the weather was fair.

i lost sight of it when it passed over a large cumulus cloud, did not see it emerge from other side of that cloud, though i should have seen that occur.

it was silent, also, but the noise of the wind, out of the north, and water as i was sailing on the starboard tack on a beam reach at a pretty good clip on my tahitian outrigger, could have obscured the sound.

moreover, i do not do drugs, nor do i smoke or drink, nor do i hallucinate.


Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
