Once it started moving the light began to dim and as it moved off into the horizon it just faded out of sight. At times it would change speed.

Follow-up information from Brian Vike:

Hi Brian The only thing I can tell you is that it was a very Clear night out . I do live close to the airport but this was no plane It seemed to be at a hi altitude and then move to a lower altitude. There have been some say that it may have been a satellite. I know most people that called in to the radio station were from BrookPark Ohio . The city had a homedays celebration and they had a fireworks display that ended about an hour prior to seeing this and a lot of people were setting off fireworks of there own that might explain why most of the calls came from BrookPark.

[UFOINFO thanks Brian Vike & HBCC UFO Research for the follow-up.]
