Euclid, Ohio UFO: MUFON on the scene third night in a row
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.
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."
Wertman said he plans to continue his investigation of this case.
