The Cleveland Plain Dealer Monday, March 7, 1988 -------------------------- COZYING OF JUPITER, VENUS LIGHT UP SKY Reports of unidentified flyin g objects are being made, and the most likely explanation is the rare alignm ent of Jupiter and Venus. Some Fairport Harbor residents reported seein g UFOs and large bright objects hovering over Lake Erie over the weekend. The Fairport Harbor Coast Guard went to the area and saw a large bright obje ct that seemed to disperse smaller, brightly colored objects. But when they called the Gre ater Cleveland air traffic controllers, they learned that Jupiter and Venus were in alignment and that the colors were the result of spontaneous gas emi ssions from the two planets. Its the celestial equivalent of a colorful floor show, says Charles B. Stephenson, a professor of astronomy at Case Wes tern Reserve University. The Earth's atmosphere helps create the color sensation, in the same way that distant stars appear to twinkle.
