The Lake Erie UFO Sightings

This article will be covering the reports linked to the Lake Erie UFO sightings that were experienced on March the 4th, 1988, in the USA.


What The Baker Family Saw

The Baker’s were on there way home from a nice meal out on the 4th of March at around half past eight in the evening. Sheila and Henry Baker had decided to take their three kids out for a meal, and were then driving home along the waterfront of Lake Erie when Shelia noticed something on the water’s surface.

Henry slowed down the car and the family were shocked to see some sort of football shaped object rocking back and forth on the lake.

It hung above the water without making any sort of sound and strange lights shone out of it’s ‘tipped’ ends. The Baker family got out of the car to investigate further, but as they did, the object started to move along the water towards them!

They turned and ran screaming back to the car, jumped in, and drove off as fast as they could.

What The Baker Family Saw


Contacting the Authorities

When the Baker family arrived home they locked all the doors, and peered out of the main living room window. They could still see the strange UFO hovering on the water, but for some reason – it’s lights had changed colour to red and blue.

They decided to phone the police, but the police line unfortunately put them straight through to the coastguard.

Shelia began to explain the incident to the coastguard and suddenly gasped as she noticed the UFO disperse a number of smaller triangular vessels from it’s body. These triangles then began to hover and dart around the main UFO’s area.

Without warning, the triangular objects then began moving towards the nearby Perry nuclear power plant.

Contacting the Authorities


The Coastguard

The coastguard finally arrived in the form of Seaman James Power and Petty Officer John Knaub, they contacted the Baker family who then pointed out where the UFO was spotted.

The decided to get as close as they could to the UFO, and moved in. As they approached the strange vessel they noticed that the icy water’s surface was starting to crack every time the UFO got too close to it.

The coastguards looked worried, and the Baker family heard them radio in a message to their HQ explaining that they were witnessing something extraordinary.

Suddenly, one of the smaller triangular UFOs broke away from it’s fleet and started to dart around the coastguard’s boat. It seemed to spin as it travelled around the boat, as it investigated the vessel. After a minute or so, it then returned to it’s mother ship fleet.

A sudden noise was then followed by all the triangular objects re-entering the main UFO as it’s lights yet again changed colour. Within a blink of the eye – it then disappeared into the night sky.

All that remained was the cracked ice on the lake’s surface.
