Euclid, Ohio UFO: MUFON on the scene third night in a row

Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Field Investigator Tom Wertman was back at the Euclid, Ohio, UFO site for "day 10" in his continuing investigation of this case.

Euclid resident Eugene Erlikh, 20, first reported seeing a UFO over Lake Erie and as of Friday, had seen the object nine days in a row.

Wertman filed an official UFO sighting report with MUFON Saturday morning, and staked out the beach area below Erlikh's high rise apartment in anticipation of seeing the object again.

The buzz built during the afternoon through emails and phone calls on who was going to see if the mysterious lights would show over Lake Erie for the 10th night in a row.

Wertman and six other ufologists braved not only the cold, but drizzling rain.

"Everyone's expectations were high," Wertman said, "but I think the smart ones were the ones who stayed home. The ceiling is probably a little over 1000 ft. and while I was hoping we would see something tonight, tomorrow will be another day."

The winds along Lake Erie had kicked up by 7:30 p.m. and white caps were visible on the lake.

"We decided to call it quits before 8 p.m. and headed to the closest restaurant to eat and warm up. Unfortunately not only was the restaurant closed, but by the time we left, it started to snow."

The evening was not a total loss as the group discussed the prior day's events, reviewed photos and discussed possibilities on what the lights are.

Wertman said he plans to continue his investigation of this case.
