Go Back Report # 155


April 8, 1958; Elyria, Ohio:

       About 7:20 p.m., a NICAP member (name withheld by request) sighted a round, fiery object also reported in Ohio papers as seen by hundreds of citizens. NICAP member’s description said the center--between two hornlike projections--showed as an intense yellow light brilliantly illuminating a half-mile area. Sparks or particles like molten metal from a Bessemer furnace seemed to come from the front and sides. Object believed to have fallen into Lake Erie.
