Strange Lights Seen in Ohio Hang Above for Two Nights

The first strange light was viewed in the 308 degree North West from 40 degree 55'58" N, 81 degrees 27'55" W.

It appeared to move not only up and down but also in a circular pattern twice over the 30 minute period. It mainly "quivered" from its original spot in between two nearby stars, which, to the other witness and I, provided a point of reference to verify that it was in fact moving. It appeared to have a halo of incredible darkness around it that sometimes restricted how much light we could see from our viewpoint. It also appeared to be spinning on an axis at a perfect 90 degree angle, which revealed "pillars" of light (for lack of a better descriptor) that emanated outward every 45 degrees around the edges of the base sphere of light that seemed to be constant.

The second strange light was seen in nearly the exact opposite direction of the previous light, but it was lower in the sky and seemed closer to us. This light appeared very much like the first one but was much more active. It moved in a pattern that resembled the symbol for infinity for a few seconds, then would slowly creep back towards its original position, then move again, slightly yet definitively and quickly. This second light even made a zig-zag pattern to the left and right of its original position relative to the nearby stars. It too even showed a pinhole-effect (restriction of light) which seemed to be caused by a "ring" of darkness around it.

Both of the lights also had a constant "flickering" effect to them that seemed like it was inconsistent, and may have been a result of the light's spinning, as when the pinhole effect would take place the light became much smaller and perfectly spherical. These were the two brightest things in the sky besides Jupiter at this point of the night, and your eye was drawn to it. They moved fluidly and unlike anything I've ever seen, almost as if someone had an incredibly powerful laser pointer and was trying to hold it steady, but the light came down on us and not from the ground up.

Like I said we were all very far away from it, and when we saw planes fly near them from our point of view they seemed to be possibly as far as in orbit around our planet, and possibly as close as 50,000 feet up.

Both of the lights were viewed extensively and this was the second night in a row I have seen them both in very similar positions in the sky if not the same position. I downloaded an app on my phone that shows all of the stars in the known universe by pointing at them in the sky and both of these objects did not register with the app as anything known to us in the sky. This includes planets, constellations, galaxies, and even satellites (there are even Russian craft).

I have also been recruiting more witnesses since yesterday and tonight three more of my friends verified that they too were seeing the same event of these incredibly strange lights.

((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of stars?? PD))
