Location: Fairlawn, OH
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
red-orange lights over Ohio 18 / State Road

Driving along State Road heading towards Route 18 from Medina area, several orange-red lights (almost sodium lamp in color) were spotted off of the left hand side of the road. They were traveling slowly in a south-easterly direction, at approximately twice the altitude of the nearby water tower. No sound was heard in association with lights. After the first group of 5 or 6 lights passed overhead, two more followed, and then a final light behind those. All seemed to be moving the same speed (15-20mph) and direction. Sky was slightly cloudy from snow, so shape of any attached craft was un-discernible. Leading 5 lights were shaped like an exponential function (curving upwards concavely), trailing lights had no notable geometry. The lights did not flash but remained steady through the sighting.
