Observer
NameMargaret
Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was very large and quite close to land when it first appeared. It was also very round and yellow. It appeared to be only slightly higher than the Space Spiral and the Windseeker at Cedar Point. It appeared to fall either into Lake Erie along the channel or close to Kelley's Island. I couldn't see it once it dropped below Cedar Point's skyline.
