Shape: Light
Duration: 5 SECONDS
neon green light or object traveled eastward then fell out of view, no aircraft nearby

I am a Network Engineer for a top CPA firm in Ohio. On October 11, at about 7:00 PM, after leaving work in Cleveland, I was driving on Route 71 South just past the Strongsville exit for Route 82. It was a very clear, high visibility evening, still light out. I glanced to my left - eastward, and noticed a pale neon green light (or brightly lit object) in the sky, about 5-10 feet in diameter. It appeared to be about a quarter mile east of the highway, and it moved eastward in the sky at a slight downward arc before (presumably) falling from sight behind a wooded area. I looked all around above me and in the area. No aircraft were in the vicinity. I couldn't see any originating source.
