501 Feet - 1 Mile
Object Flight Path
On the evening of the event I was taking the highway entrance ramp from state route 322 westbound onto interstate 271 south (Mayfield Heights, Ohio)when I was watching for traffic merging onto to interstate and I noticed the objects. They can best be described as appearing like "Chinese lanterns" with rotating white, yellow and red lights. At first I saw about 4 of the objects in a row rising into the sky moving west bound across the highway from where I was. They were fairly large maybe 50+ feet across about 1/4 - 1/2 mi. away and were rising into a low cloud deck that was about 1500 ft. high. I was so startled seeing the objects I pulled over to the side of the interstate to get a better view. When I looked northbound and toward a eastern direction up I 271 I saw about 13 - 15 objects all moving in the same direction. The objects looked "like pearls on a string" since they were rising fairly slowly and steadily into the low cloud deck. I stood watching the objects until they all ascended into the cloud deck. There was no sound emitting from the objects. I tried to take a picture on my smart phone but it didn't come out because it was dark and they were too far away. I can say the objects were not like anything I had ever seen before. Originally I thought they could be balloons or a procession of aircraft but I ruled them both out. The objects were too large for balloons and were omitting the lights and all moving in a linear formation. They couldn't be aircraft since I didn't see any wings or heard any engine noise and they were moving slowly. I can also rule out helicopters, drones, hot air balloons ect. This was truly a unique experience for me and one that I will never forget.
