Jan., 2002 Reports


DUBUQUE -- The witness reports, "What we saw was clearly a UFO
with light blue flashing lights at 7:15 PM, on January 3, 2002.
There were four of us in the car driving on Highway 61, when we
saw the UFO come toward us as we drove along. It seemed to
change directions and go the way we were going for a few
seconds. It was only 50 feet above us so we got a good look. It
was saucer-shaped with a dome-like top. It acted like it wanted
us to stop the car. The flashing lights were very bright, as
they would flash on for a second, go off for about 1 and a half
to 2 seconds, and then back on again. The UFO was saucer-shaped
and had a dome-shaped top. The saucer had windows, 4, or 5 on
the side we could clearly see. The light seemed to be coming
out of these windows. Finally it started flying away from us
and it disappeared, so we thought. Then I saw the light blue
lights again in my rearview mirror, which followed us ! for
about six miles. The lights were not getting further away from
us as we drove on. By the time we drove into the city, it was
gone. We know what we saw and no one's going to tell us any



MARION -- At 7:30 PM, on January 3, 2002, a few minutes after
the above sighting. The witness noticed four motionless sources
of light, flashing red, blue, and white. The one craft I could
see from my bedroom window, and I am looking at one as I type
this that is in the shape of a "+," but this may be due to the
window. At this time, which is now 9:02 PM, it still hasn't
moved from its spot. The other three remained motionless too,
but I cannot see hem now. I witnesses one ascending to above my
window's view, so I went outside, and it is still there. I can
see that both Saturn and Uranus are visible. Some would say
that these are planets. Well, there are two things wrong with
that. 1: there are four objects, not two. 2: What planets flash
blue and white, then occasionally red? They could be
helicopters. This town has only 26,000 people and the biggest
city in a 50 miles hasis only 100,000. Why woul! d four
helicopters hover over a small town not moving one inch in
three hours? Nothing of national importance is in this town.

WATERFORD, RACINE COUNTY -- UFOWisconsin reports that the witness 
who wishes to remain anonymous stated, "I was sitting out by the 
farm areas with my son on January 5, 2002, just north of Wind Lake 
and just south of Waterford. I was looking at the stars when I saw 
something that was square shaped that stopped for about 30 seconds. 
It then started moving slowly and disappeared. I would have thought 
that I was seeing things, but my son who is 13 years old, pointed 
it out to me. Note: We are trying to follow up with this witness. 
We found it unusual that the object he saw in the sky was square 
shaped. Thanks to jenny@ufowisconsin.com, 



MARSHFIELD/PITTSVILLE -- UFOWisconsin witness reports, "My friend 
and his son were coming home from Marshfield on January 9, 2002, 
and when they arrived they had told me that they had seen a lot 
of unidentifiable flashing lights in the sky and to go out on the 
roof and look.  Two adults and two teenagers witnessed these lights 
from 7 to 7:45 PM.  There were many small lights in the sky, each 
object seemed to have three colors red, yellow, green.  There was 
no pattern to their travel.  Some were moving very fast and then 
would stop and change direction rapidly.  Others would be moving 
fast and then stop and the lights would dim very low.  It was 
nothing I have ever witnessed before.  They were flying much too 
close to be aircraft flying at different heights and speeds.  
Thanks to FOWisconsin.com  



      On Tuesday, January 22, 2002, at about 5 a.m., 
teenaged M.J. "was in my bedroom talking on the phone with 
the lights out and my glasses off.  I happened to glance 
at the window and saw a large object with white, red and 
maybe green lights sort of hovering over our hog barn.  I 
couldn't see it well since I wasn't wearing my glasses."

      "I grabbed my glasses and put them on and ran to the
window.  But by this time it (the UFO) was pretty far away
and I couldn't make out any details, but I'm fairly sure it 
was round.  It seemed (to come) pretty close to the house.
But there was no sound at all.  Possibly it was saucer-

      "I didn't see it approach.  I only saw it hovering.  It
must have been pretty low and very close considering I even 
saw it.  I'm pretty much blind without my glasses.  It also 
must have moved very fast.  I had turned away from my window
for just a second or two to grab my glasses, and when I
looked out the window.  It looked to be several miles away."

      Riceville (population 800) is in northern Iowa just
south of the Minnesota state line about 200 miles (320
kilometers) north-northeast of Des Moines, the state
capital.  (Email Interview)

we saw a brite light in the sky. it had from our point of view 4 lites on 1 side and it was 
roating slowly. 

Full Description & Details:
me and my freands were walking around and we looked at the sky and we saw 4 lights. it 
hovered for abou a 1 min then moved VERY fast i wold say about 2,000 mph. 


location:	Lake Benton, MN (on the lake)
date of event:	approx. 2002
time of event:	approx 1 am
event duration:	15 minutes
weather conditions:	sky was clear (you could clearly see stars), no wind, weather was 
cool and calm
additional witnesses:	my husband and a friend
number of UFOs:	2 ?
shape:	do not know - looked like stars shiney, bright, white light but blinking
color:	bright white blinking (too far away - looked like stars
speed:	very very fast
sound:	none
size:	like i said, they were very far away, they looked like stars
lights:	they were blinking very fast NOT like airplane lights then when they would 
stop moving - the blinking would stop
other details:	i was looking at the stars, noticed this"star" blinking very fast and
moving up, down, zig zag at very harsh angles, and then stop - the blinking stoped and 
it was bright again, like another star. then i saw the other one...pretty far away from the 
first. they did this for about 15 minutes, first alternating, then together. they were moving 
so fast i lost track of them.
angle of observation:	90
how UFO left your view:	they weren't close to each other, so i was constantly back 
and forth - when they started to BOTH move (instead of alternate) i couldn't keep track
movement:	very rapid and irratic, horizontal, vertical and zig zagging.
facing direction:	i'm not sure, were were in the middle of the lake - it was very dark 
and very late
c1:	Lights only
c12:	Passed overhead
c18:	Stationary
your report:	My husband, a friend and myself were at my Uncle's fishing resort 
right on Lake Benton, in Lake Benton, MN. We had decided to go out fishing, for most 
of the evening, and finally started catching fish at about midnight. It's important for me 
to tell you, we had NOT been drinking, using any sort of drugs (cold medicine etc.) or 
had been in the sun all day. I was watching the stars (you can't see them in the city - 
it's nice there) and I noticed one "star" blinking - very fast. Almost the speed of a strobe 
light. There was nothing remarkable about the star, it was the same brightness as those 
around it. I pointed it our to my friend and husband and they just said, oh it's a satellite. 
Then, as we were all watching, it darted, straight down, and then to the left, up and then 
to the right twice. Then it stopped moving and about 10 seconds later, the blinking 
stopped (it was just bright like a normal star. I was still looking at it when my friend said, 
"hey there's one over here" and from the opposite end of the boat (normal size fishing 
canoe) I saw another one, which although I didn't see the starting position, seemed to 
be mimicking the other's movement, it too stopped moving, and was bright. They 
alternated doing this for approximately 15 minutes (different patterns everytime) - then 
they started moving in tandem. They were so far away from each other, and i was 
looking back and forth - that I lost track.
My husband and friends theory is that they were military helicopters or planes somewhere 
in South Dakota (SD is only miles away) and because it was such a clear night - we were 
seeing thier tail lights or something. 
I'm not dismissing that at all - it just has always seemed sort of unsettling to me that we 
saw that, and told no one but my Uncle about it. My Uncle seemed to agree with me, and 
said there were occasionally weird lights that you could only see if you were far out on 
the "point" (close to the middle of the lake).

Flying from west to east nearly straight up from my location. Three dots in a string 
apearing to follow each other. Caught my Eye while I was watching a jet flying to 
the south of my house. I stepped out on my porch to get a better look and said to 
myself what the hell is that. Never seen anything like this before. The three dot 
appeared to vear off course to the left slightly and the back on course due east. 
Almost like three jets but much to high and fast. Faded in to the eastern sky 
appearing to go straight out not curving down as with the curve of the earth. Slight 
haze around the dots of light. appeared to be connected with an invisible string



EAU CLAIRE -- On February 16, 2002, at about 9:00 PM, Jerry 
was standing outside his place of work to take a break.  Jerry 
reports, "I looked to the south and noticed a very bright light 
in the sky that I thought was Venus or another planet because 
it was so bright."  At that point another worker came outside, 
and I asked him what he thought it might be?  He thought it was 
an airplane.  Another worker came out and thought it was a 
helicopter, because it started to move straight up, but there 
was no noise.  The light looked circular, and it had two lights 
that flashed red on either side of it.  When it moved closer, 
the object changed from a circle to a triangle shape.  The flashing 
red lights were on either side of the points at the base of the 
triangle, and they were flashing in unison.  Then the triangle 
started to rotate right, and it seemed to divide in half and become 
two separate pieces. At about a 45 degree angle it came back 
together, and reformed into a wedge shape that resembled an F-16 
shape with swept wing.  The red lights were at the tips of the 
wing.  At this point I realized that this was not the whole 
object.  A darker black object surrounded the bright light.  
It was ringed by faint flashing white lights that gave it it's 
shape which was very large, maybe two times as big as a commercial 
airliner.  The object approached, stopped, rotated clockwise 
ninety degrees and headed southwest.  This craft did not display 
normal flying characteristics in the five minutes we observed it.

VESTABURG -- On February 20, 2002, the witness heard high pitched 
sounds and saw a bright light that lit up her entire yard at 3:30 AM.  The 
witness says, "I was awakened by a loud noise that sounded like a base 
drum going Baboom, Baboom, several times.  This proceeded into a high 
pitched sound that would change octaves for a long period of time.  I 
thought I was losing my mind so I got out of bed and went to look around 
the house to see if I could find what it was and my three acre yard was lit 
up like daytime.  The high-pitched noise would start up, then stop for 30 
seconds or so and start up again.  My husband also heard these sounds 
and our cat was going crazy.  My brother lives three miles away and he 
also heard it.  I could not see any form of craft in the sky but there was a 
very bright light shining down.  Finally everything stopped.  GOLDEN, 
COLORADO -- The previous day similar strange noises were reported at 
2:00 PM, but! no lights were seen.

It was a bright red orange flickering fireball moving slowly toward us then started 
moving south then it stopped and we noticed flames falling from it for maybe a 
minute then it just disappeared. We are a husband and wife in are early 20's. Both 
highschool graduates. Husband works at a food processing plant, wife works at 
home. We didnot believe in UFO's or anything like this and didnot know what to do 
or who to tell or report it to.



Allen T reports on February 27, 2002, the witness says, "My 
daughter and I had just dropped off my son at a Boy Scout 
meeting and turned onto Main Street in Menomonee Falls 
heading east towards home at 6:55 PM.  We both saw a brightly 
lit object coming down at a rapid speed approximately at a 
250 degree angle.  It only lasted a few seconds and seemed 
to disappear over Lake Michigan.  We looked at each other 
in disbelief.  It looked like a flaming jet crashing, but it 
was moving too fast.  Makes you wonder?

more information. John Hoppe, Director@ufowisconsin.com 


March, 2002 Reports


DES MOINES -- I was driving off of exit 41 from Interstate I-80 
on March 6, 2002, east the UFO was sitting back north of the 
exit at 10:05 PM.  The UFO gave off a pale gold light and 
looked metallic, and had a clear bubble though the center top 
to bottom.  I could see lighting shaped symbols on the out 
side of the craft.  The UFO hovered 150 to 200 feet above the 
ground; it had a slow gold blinking light.  I kept driving 
south toward Prairie Meadows Race Track and the object just 
levitated in place.



      On Friday, March 15, 2002, at 8:30 p.m., the male
witness, who wishes to remain anonymous, reported, "I was
coming home from (nearby) Omaha, Nebraska on (Interstate
Highway) I-79 South when I first noticed a cone-shaped
object that was not moving across the sky like an airplane
or known aircraft.  It was stationary.  The color was a
pale neon blue.  It looked as if it was a mile or 2 above
ground.  I kept my eye on it as I was driving.  Then I
pulled over and observed the thing for about 15 minutes."
      The witness estimated that the cone-shaped UFO was
over Highway 34 approximately 3 miles (5 kilometers) west
of Glenwood, Iowa.
      He added, "It looked as though it occasionally cast
some sort of light down under it.  I get the feeling that
it was looking for something or perhaps taking photos.
The light that was being cast down was not as bright
as the object itself.  It was rather faint in comparison."
      "There is an Air Force base nearby, and one of the
bigger planes emerged from the southeastern sky.  As the
plane got closer, the object seemed to fade in brightness.
And, just like a car backing up in reverse, the object
did until you could no longer see it."
      "When the plane went by and was out of sight, back it 
came and resumed whatever it was doing before."
      "The thing moved at fantastic speed.  It doesn't seem 
like the object was playing hide-and-seek with the plane.
Also, I noticed I was not the only person who pulled over
to watch this thing."
      The object was still over Glenwood when the witness
drove away. Glenwood (population 5,358) is on Iowa Highway 275,
about 25 miles (40 kilometers) southeast of Omaha, Nebraska.

      On Friday, March 15, 2002, at midnight, the witness
reported, "I was outside at work for a break when I saw an
object at very low altitude traveling from south to north
over the city of Sheboygan," Wisconsin (population 50,792)
"I didn't think nothing of it, but I didn't hear a sound,
and there was a bright light in front that was shining on
the ground in a sweeping motion.  It was around midnight,
and the light then disappeared."
      "Then there were three large flashes of light to the
east of our building, and the power went out.  I called
the (Sheboygan) police department, and they stated that
the power was out in a six-block area where I work."
      The mysterious blackout "was more widespread to the
north of the city.  They had no idea why the power was
      "I then called the (Sheboygan County) Sheriff's
department, and the person there told me that a deputy had
spotted the object but could not identify it.  The
Sheriff's department called the airports in Milwaukee,
Green Bay and Sheboygan County, and no one could say if
there was a plane in the area.  The sheriff's official
also told me that they had received several (telephone)
calls about the same low-flying object."
      Sheboygan is on the western shore of Lake Michigan,
located approximately 56 miles (89 kilometers) north of
Milwaukee.  (Many thanks to John Hoppe of UFO Wisconsin
for this report.)



GRAND RAPIDS -- On March 16, 2002, the witness reports, we were 
talking in our room where the ceiling is made of glass, so we had a 
could view of the night sky.  "At 830 PM, we heard an incredibly loud 
roaring/shrieking sound, that grew louder, as a "V" shaped craft, with 
lights lining its border, zipped right over our house!  The sound grew 
quiet just in time for another one, followed soon after by another one.  
The three UFOs flew over within one minute of each other.  They all 
were black, quick, and had dotted lights along the edges of their "V" 
shape.  We both felt the first one was an airplane, but by the time the 
third one came around, it was obvious that these were UFOs.  They 
took only about 20 seconds to cross from east to west over the sky.

WATERFORD -- On March 19, 2002, yellow and red lights were 
observed flying about 200 feet in the air for about three 
minutes at 8:05 AM.  They then disappeared.  The witness 
didn't know if there was an effect on the ground probably 
a Close Encounter of the third kind. Thanks to Peter

April, 2002 Reports


LYNDON STATION -- On April 6, 2002, Kim W. reports, "My son 
came home about 10:30 PM and said there were strange lights 
in the sky."  My wife and I went out to look.  The object 
consisted of about eight large white lights formed in a large 
circle.  The entire circle was rotating clockwise slowly. 
There was a 300 feet cloud ceiling.  Whatever this was appeared 
to be just above the clouds.  The clouds gave the lights an 
opaque effect and it seemed to throw light off in one part of 
its rotation, kind of like a water sprinkler throws water, but 
just in one spot.  When holding my hand up in front of me, it 
would have taken 6 hands to cover it.  Quite large!  It was in 
the east of our location.  It was stationary for maybe 10 minutes, 
then began a slight movement to the southwest and disappeared in 
the blink of an eye.  Thanks to Kim W. and John Hoppe, 



UFOWisconsin reports the witness was watching TV at about 10:30PM, 
on April 8, 2002, with one of his friends.  He says, "My TV is 
next to a picture window so I can usually see a lot of the outside, 
which turns out to help me later in my report.  He states, "I was 
getting up to go to bed and I saw something strange in the sky out 
my window that looked like an asteroid, but a lot lower and moving 
at a much slower pace."  At first, I didn't think anything of it, 
but when it didn't go away for about a minute, I kept watching.  
It was headed to the east, towards the city.  We quickly put on 
our jackets and went outside to watch it.  After another minute, 
it stopped in mid air about 8 miles away and broke into two separate 
parts, and disappeared.  It was pretty weird. Submission by Stephen 
Bayer  Thanks to UFOWisconsin. http://www.ufowisconsin.com/



      Last week saw three sightings of UFOs in different
regions of the USA's Midwestern state of Wisconsin.
      On Tuesday, April 9, 2002, Stephen Bayer reports, "I
was watching TV at about 10:30 p.m. like I usually do on a
Tuesday night with one of my friends. My TV is next to a
picture window" at his home in Ripon, Wis. (population
6,828) a town on Highway 44 approximately 67 miles (110
kilometers) northwest of Milwaukee.  "So I usually see a
lot of the outside."
      "Anyway, I was getting up to go to bed, and I saw
something strange at my window.  It was in the sky, and it
looked like an asteroid but a bit lower and moving at a
much slower pace.  At first I didn't think anything of it,
but when it didn't go away for about a minute, I kept
      "It was headed to the east, towards the city
(Milwaukee--J.T.)  We quickly put on our jackets and went
outside to watch it.  After another minute or two, it
stopped in mid-air.  I'm guessing about eight miles (12
kilometers) away.  It then broke into two separate parts
and then disappeared.  We went back inside and decided to
tell people later, since it was pretty weird."



      On Wednesday, April 10, 2002, J.P. "was sitting in my 
living room on the second floor of my two-story house" in
Commerce Township, Michigan, and "I was looking out our
window, which is 10 by 15 feet (3 by 4.5 meters), and I
noticed lights in the eastern sky."
      "The lights, five in total, were in a V-shape.  I
have seen just about every kind of plane in the sky, but
this was no plane.  The lights were set up on this craft
with two on each side and one in the center."
      "The V was flying in the same manner as migratory
birds do.  The object was flying roughly 150 to 200 feet
(45 to 60 meters) above the ground.  There was no noise to
be heard.  I had the window open.  I couldn't make out a
structure (wings, cockpit--J.P.) even though the moon was
out.  The object without any indication turned (suddenly)
as if on a lazy susan and started off towards the
southwest.  The whole experience had only lasted about 90
seconds."  (Email Form Report)


MERRICK --Jerry & Debbie C report that my wife and son (he's 12) were 
getting home late on April 12, 2002, around 8:30 PM from shopping.  
My other son (he is 9) and I were worried. They just pulled in the 
driveway and were yelling "look at that," nervously, "it was 
following us." They where scared. This was no plane or helicopter. 
It was bright yellow and just above the trees moving very slowly 
and hovering. It looked like a star but off color yellow. My son 
ran to get the camcorder but with the lighting in town we couldn't 
adjust it or see it in the view finder. We all agreed that it was 
a UFO. It vibrated, pulsed, with little side to side movements. 
Very weird, scary,  We see a lot of weird lights around here. This 
is where professional equipment would capture awesome video or 
pictures. Thanks to John Hoppe, Director@ufowisconsin.com

Posted: 3/21/2003
Location: Lonsdale, MN
Duration:1.5 hours
At 10 PM my wife observed a light in the southwestern sky that was odd because 
it was moving erratically. I joined her on the deck and saw a red and green light that 
were close together. I assumed it was an airplane, but it suddenly made a sharp 
movement to the side, then an up and movement. Now the side to side movement 
could resemble a very wide winged plane with the wing lights flashing alternatly. 
But this didn't explain the up and down movement. Also the light stayed in the same 
place, every so often jerking to one side or the other or up and down. I looked around 
and observed an identical light in the western sky with the same movements. We 
watched for about 1/2 hour and they stayed in the same position. My wife went to 
bed and I continued to read. At a little after 11 PM I went out to check and the light 
in the southwest was gone, but the western one was in the same position and still 
jerking around. I got my binoculars, hoping to see more but the light just was sharper.
 As I was watching two more of the same type lights appeared in the northwestern 
sky. These acted the same but also blinked off and then on every so often. After 
about another 1/2 hour these two lights suddenly moved at an extremely fast speed 
toward the western light and when they neared it they disappeared. Now these two 
lights seemed smaller or further away. When I went to bed an hour later the west 
light was still there. I can think of no logical explanation. All the light were red and 
green and seemed to be very close together.



MUSKEGO -- The witness reports that on April 13, 2002, my wife returned 
from the grocery store. I went outside to sneak upon her.  As I was 
approaching her I looked up and saw several aircraft on approach to 
Mitchell Airfield.  Immediately upon fixing my eyes on those airplanes, 
I saw a small circle shaped grayish colored object streak across the 
sky in a westerly direction at 12:20 PM.  I tried to get my wife to 
see but she missed it.  With my eyes fixed on this new object I walked 
around the back of the cars to get a better look.  This object was 
flying in a straight line, and the only noise I heard was from the 
airplane on approach.  The UFO was smaller than either airplane and 
was traveling quite fast without leaving a vapor trail.  It suddenly 
started to turn, but I didn't notice a banking movement as with the 
airplanes.  It started making counter clockwise circles in a very 
small flight radius at high speed.  Then a second object, third and 
a forth appeared all flying in counter clockwise circles stacked over 
the same airspace separated by altitude.  The objects were going in 
and out of view as if they were reflecting off the sun, and then not 
and then reflecting again for five minutes when my eyes became strained 
from the sunlight.  So I went inside and got the camera but when I 
went back outside they were gone.  There were no news reports of any 
unusual flying objects.  The weather was sunny, unlimited visibility, 
59 degrees F.  Thanks to UFOWIsconsin.



HOLLISTER -- UFOWisconsin witness reports, "My parents came home about 
8:15 PM and my Mom told me that my dad spotted something weird in the 
sky on April 13, 2002. I ran outside and saw this light moving across 
the sky from NE to SW. It was much larger than the stars that were out. 
It moved across the sky until it fizzled out just before the tree line. 
This lasted about 30 seconds to a minute. 



      On Tuesday, April 16, 2002, at 8:50 p.m., in
Janesville, Wisconsin (population 59,498), Jonathan M.
reports, "It was cloudy but I could still see either the
moon or a bright star.  I was trying to make out what it
was (the moon or a star--J.M.)  As I was looking at it,
three orange lights came from the northeast.  They were in
formation side by side.  As they went overhead, they
zigzagged between each other and shot off to the southwest
in formation again (side by side--J.M.)."
      "If you held a dime in your fingers, and held it at
arm's length, this would have been about the size" of the
objects.  "They made no noise, and they were very fast.
They were not military jets."
      "I want to know if anyone else saw that.  Someone had 
to because of the brightness and the size.  I turned on
the (radio) scanner to see if there were any reports, but
no one here reported anything."
      Janesville, Wis. is on Routes 11 and 14, located
about 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Madison, the
state capital.  (Many thanks to John Hoppe of UFO-Wisconsin 
for this report.)
(Editor's Note:  Janesville is well-known to Forteans for
its periodic unusual phenomena.  In February 1892, a
frozen crocodile five-and-one-half feet (1.5 meters) long
was found on the banks of the Rock River near Janesville.

Sighting Date/Time: 4-19-02 1:55 a.m.
Sighting Location:  Columbia Heights, Mn.

Sighting Description:  While watching the northern light 
display in my back yard, I saw what looked like a transparent 
wing with subtle lights inside pass on a east to west course. 
The outline was visible only from the light that seemed 
tranferred through the medium of the structure. Say as if you 
immersed some lights in a clear gelatin mass, some ambient 
light would dimly illuminate the entire mass. The wing shape 
was angled, although not strongly enough to be called a 
triangle. It was completely silent, I had no way to estimate 
size or distance. If we assume a size equal to a private 
plane, then it was larger, lower and much faster. Traveling 
a estimated thirty five or forty degrees of travel in no 
more than three or four seconds before sighting was lost. 
I have always been an aviation buff, father and brother 
served in the air force. I have never seen anything close 
to this, not even in science fiction. This spooked me bad 
enough to go inside, check that the doors were locked. I 
hunt bears, I don't spook easy.


May, 2002 Reports

MOSINEE -- Two witnesses were driving down the road at 
9:15 PM, on May 13, 2002, when they looked up and saw two 
bright white lights above a field.  The witness states, "As 
we got closer, we saw there was a red flickering light in 
the middle, so we pulled over and watched whatever it was 
and it looked like it hovered."  Then it took off back 
toward town.  I rolled down the window and listened and 
it sounded somewhat like a lawn mower.  We turned around 
and followed it and drove about 55 or 60 mph and it was 
speeding way ahead of us.  We thought it might be a plane 
because there was an airport (Central Wisconsin Airport) 
that way but couldn't figure out why it was so low and why 
it was going so fast.  As we kept going, we saw it hovering 
over a field again. We saw that it looked triangular and 
somewhat flat.  We pulled over and watched and it took off 
once again and we saw yellow lights now.  As we followed 
it back the other way, it looked like it dipped and crossed 
the road and hovered about 60 feet above a house.  We caught 
up again, pulled over and again it took off very fast and 
looked like it landed in a field up ahead, but it was too 
fast to see where it went or landed.  Thanks to NUFORC.



HOLLAND -- I saw two very powerful lights at 10:45 PM, on 
May 13, 2002, coming from what appeared to be the back of 
some sort of craft.  It was in the sky and maybe about 600 
feet from the ground.  The lights resembled a pair of very 
bright car headlights.  The craft was heading south and to 
the west a little.  I was driving at the time, heading south, 
and was on a road with very little traffic, so I could speed 
up and try to get closer to it.  I sped up to try to get 
closer and it appeared to be slowing down.  I kept watching 
it and when I became parallel to it I pulled over and turned 
off my car.  The lights were coming from the back of the 
craft and there were no lights on the front.  There was a 
less bright light above the two, creating a triangle of three 
lights. It was making some noise and the closest thing I 
could compare the noise to was a high pitch radio frequency.  
I watched it briefly and after about 60 seconds it slowed 
almost to a stop.  It began to go straight up and turn 
directly around and went towards the north again.  I tried 
to follow it again and it quickly drifted to the west and I 
no longer could see it.  The witness says, "I have never 
previously seen any objects I believe to be UFOs first hand.  
I was not on any hallucinogens or drugs at the time of the 
sighting and I am convinced that what I saw was definitely 
real - I wasn't just imagining something.  
NUFORC Note: Peter Davenport spoke with this witness at some 
length, and we found him to be seemingly serious-minded and 
Editor's Note: Multiple witnesses in two states appear to be 
describing the same vehicle about one hour and thirty minutes 
apart and 200 miles away across Lake Michigan.  If the craft 
flew a direct course it would have passed through two 
restricted areas.

about an hour. there was only one. there was a fighter jet that we saw coming at the 
end of the siting it looked like it was chasing the ufo. thats when it left.


DULUTH -- The sighting lasted from 9:00 PM to 6:00 AM, and 
I saw it in Morgan Park, on May 24, 2002, during the entire 
night there were two round lights that people might think 
were stars facing west.  They were four times their normal 
size and much more active.  I saw a little light fly into 
one of the big lights.  They seemed to be watching me as I 
watched them.


Wayzata, MN sighting:
Yesterday 5/26/2002 at about 11:15 AM. while driving east 
on Hwy 12 at Wayzata, I saw a bright shining saucer 
between the Carlson towers, but when we got to the other 
side of them it was gone. My boyfriend also saw it and we 
searched the air all around and there were no airplanes 
in our veiw and the object had vanished. We never saw it 
go up and away, it seemed to be decending as if it were 
landing. It was not a large saucer or did not seem to be 
unless it was farther away then it seemed. From where we 
were (car dealer) it was smaller then the peaks on the 
buildings. We were wondering if anyone else had reported 
seeing it.

I realized that it looked like one light was trying to catch the other, then back off, 
going up and down, and then the first object looked like it was doing the same 
thing I ran home to get my husband, but by the time I went 2 houses to our home 
the lights were gone.


June, 2002 Reports

Sighting Date/Time: june, 2002
Sighting Location: Frazee, MN
Around the farms of Silver/Murphy lake area, topography is unusual there, too many 
sightings to report. One person said they saw a craft actually disappear into Silver 
Lake and was glowing under the water. This man was nighttime fishing last summer. 
Some say time seems to stop and everything is totally silent. Reports of strange 
mirror like objects in forest. 

Sighting Description: 
I don't have the courage to give you my name, especially since I have a high profile 
career, but down 505 St., Frazee, MN -Silver Lake/Murphy Lake area - The amount 
of UFO activity is staggering. This place has got to be the UFO mecca of the US. 
Freakish activity almost nightly.

In the summer time there's numerous sightings. Frighteningly aggressive aliens 
reported by a few scared residents. Those in the know say "don't go messin around 
down by Silver lake". Rumors of high ranking Gov. officials dressed up like D.N.R. 
on the move. Many town folks either unaware or button lipped. Some of the Aliens 
are nick named "old hags" because they reportedly appear to resemble old ugly 
women, but have all the other classic characteristics. The sky activity at this 
place must makes old area 51 look like a normal, happy place. As far as I know all 
of this activity has started about a year ago. My family has roots in this area and 
have all experienced sightings.



BRIDGMAN -- Five friends were sitting around the fire on 
June 1, 2002, thirty minutes after midnight talking and 
looking for shooting stars.  One witness states, "Out of 
the corner of my eye in the southern sky, I saw a slow 
moving light that was a little bigger than a shooting star 
that changed color from red to orange to white in a matter 
of seconds."  It looked as though it was enflamed, and it 
shot something out that looked like a spark."  My friend 
shouted out obscenities in disbelief when he saw it go 
under a cloud and shoot out sparks two more times at about 
a half second apart.  Then it abruptly slowed down, then 
sped up and suddenly disappeared.  The object left a small 
flaming tail but was too low in my opinion to be space 
junk.  The witness stated, "It was an almost perfect 
flying triangle with rounded edges heading southeast that 
lasted a few seconds.  Thanks to Peter Davenport Director 
of NUFORC http://www.ufocenter.com. 



KALAMAZOO TO MUSKEGON -- On June 2,,2002, the witness reports, 
"We were driving home and when got to Kalamazoo at 9:30 PM, I 
noticed a UFO in the western sky with lights all over it. 
Although it was pretty far up, the lights looked red, orange, 
white and a bluish-green color.  It looked like other small 
craft were coming out of it or beams of light were shooting off. 
It pretty much stayed with us for about two hours. As we neared 
Muskegon it looked as though it was going towards Lake Michigan, 
it got smaller and disappeared.  The next night from my father's 
house in North Muskegon, we spotted the same object near the 
moon.  My father said, "He had seen two of the same type 30 
years ago.  One of them shot a laser and hit the other one, and 
then they both disappeared."  The third night, the UFO just 
twirled around and moved a little.  Later, we saw four of them 
through the telescope that had three circular things underneath 
twirling clockwise, almost like balls of fire.  On June 26, we 
drove to Lake Michigan and saw two lights just over the water. 
Thanks to Peter Davenport


MADISON -- The witness states, "I saw a strange tubular 
shaped object going south for a moment on June 4, 2002, 
as I was distracted by another glinting object traveling 
north.  The glinting object seemed to change direction 
unlike a plane or a helicopter and entered a cloud but 
continued to glint, when I noticed the tubular shape 
coming from the north.  When I looked back a couple of 
seconds later, they both had disappeared. Thanks to Peter

I saw an alien

I was sleeping out in the backyard with my sister when I woke up. I did not know 
what woke me up so I looked at my watch. It said 3:00 exactly. I then noticed that 
the side of the tent that faced the wetlands and lake was lit up. I would like to tell 
everyone that it was no a light from a boat. The wetlands is inbetween my house 
and lake and it is about 150 yards wide and there is no way a light could have been 
that bright off a boat. I then saw what I truly believe to be a shadow of a torso and 
arm of an alien. I watched it for about thirty seconds and saw the fingers move in 
a manner that assured me that it was not a inatamate object being blown by the 
wind. I became frightened and hid in my sleeping bag. I do not know how long they 
were there but when I came out of my sleeping bag about an hour later the light 
was gone and so was the Alien.

July, 2002 Reports

Mysterious Lights Make Appearance At UFO Daze
By Mary Ann Holley Sheboygan Press Staff 7-22-2

DUNDEE - Six glowing amber spheres lit up the night sky 
Saturday above a forested area on the northern edge of 
Long Lake, lending credence to the statement, "They're 
out there."

More than 150 spectators watched as the lights moved 
methodically across the sky, then hovered in a formation 
over the northern edge of the Kettle Moraine State Forest.

One flashed from a bright yellow to a clear white. Then 
a second sphere flashed. The unknown lights were a 
surprise, but not entirely unexpected for those who had 
gathered there for UFO Daze, an event held each July for 
the past 12 years.

"If it's a hoax, it's a good one," said Bill Benson, 
owner of Benson's Holiday Hideaway, a small country 
tavern on the northern point of Long Lake. "If someone's 
jerking our chain, they're doing a good job."

Inside the tavern, where Out of this World pizza, Alien 
Extras and Martian pick-me-ups are on the menu, a 3-inch 
scrapbook sits on the bar, filled with hundreds of 
photographs of UFO sightings from the area.

"We call this UFO headquarters because there are so many 
sightings," Benson said.

In May 1985 after a night of soupy fog blanketed the area, 
a crop circle was formed in marsh grass just outside the 
tavern. The event was documented on a national television 
show, Benson said.

"A neighbor lady lost all the water in her well that night," 
Benson recalled. "It later came back, but never ran as well 
as it did before."

In 1989, a neighbor tried to chase the cows out of his 
barn, but the cows would run back in, Benson said. A UFO 
was seen hovering east and south of the barn. Another 
neighbor verified the incident, Benson said. In 1999, four 
fighter jets were seen chasing a light over the lake. Photos 
were taken by a local resident.

"I don't know why they pick this place," Benson said. 
"People say the magnetic energies in the earth here are 
very high. Maybe that's the reason. One of our town board 
members saw the same fighter jets."

UFO Daze guests spent the day hearing presentations by those 
who had encountered UFOs on various occasions and those who 
claimed to have regular contact with extraterrestrial beings.

Bonnie Meyer of Neenah, a presenter at the event, claimed 
she has had alien contacts since 1976 when a craft came 
down over the road as she was driving.

"I was camping in New London over the Fourth of July with 
my husband, friends and family," Meyer said. "A ladder 
dropped down and an alien in a silver suit waved me over. 
At first I wasn't going to go, but I figured I'd never have 
that chance again."

Since then, Meyer said, there have been steady contacts 
varying from once a week to once a month. They come down 
and she goes with them, she said.

She said her neighbors don't notice because the ship puts 
up a force-field, a device, the aliens explained, that 
prevents others from seeing them.

"They said they're here because we're not kind to our 
planet," Meyer said. "I've met about 16 different alien 
varieties, from those who look like the Pillsbury Doughboy 
to ones that look like a blue Big Bird. They've always 
been friendly and kind. They said they'd like us to speak 
out more." Heathermarie Podulke of Sheboygan said she saw 
UFOs during last year's UFO Daze.

"It changed my life and changed my world," Podulke said. 
"It reminded me more of my soul's intention and purpose, 
that my soul comes from extraterrestrial origins. It 
jarred my memories."

Ken Keen of Milwaukee attended UFO Daze for the past two 
years. He said he blew off work to be there.

"Absolutely, I believe," said Keen. "It seems like common 
sense to me. The universe is very large. I'm into the Bible. 
Who knows? What we see might be God. It's a science and 
spiritual thing for me."

Rich Beringer of Dundee, a regular at the tavern, said he 
takes the UFO talk in stride.

"I live here. I was here when the marsh grass was packed 
down," Beringer said. "A couple of girls came in screaming. 
They were scared crapless. I don't know if I'm into it, but 
I've seen some weird things around here." 


Reporter Not Sure What To Think 
By Mary Ann Holley Sheboygan Press Staff 7-23-2

In the skewed words of Richard M. Nixon, "I am not a kook."

Saturday, after packing my skepticism in my back pocket, 
I covered UFO Daze anticipating far-fetched stories and 
tales of extraterrestrial beings.

But after arriving at the old country bar on the edge of 
Long Lake and seeing firsthand the amazing spheres of light 
hovering high over the hillsides, I began to think anything 
is possible.

What were the strange amber lights that so methodically 
made their appearance, lights that seemed to come by 
invitation to a waiting crowd pumped up by stories of 
UFOs and alien beings?

As one observer said: If it was a hoax, it was a good one.

Fireworks don't hover for 15 minutes. Planes and 
helicopters make noise. The lights were too high and too 
sporadic to be part of the old lanterns-on-a-clothesline 

I've always had an eye for the unusual and appreciate a 
good story, but when I see things that have no real 
explanation, it's a strange twist. I attended the event 
with an editor and a former editor of The Press -which 
should verify my sanity. They, too, saw the glowing lights.

After the sighting, one woman was weakened by the experience. 
Another sobbed for more than an hour, lamenting that the 
UFOs had come for her. Another said she was having a 
flashback from an earlier abduction.

Most of all, everyone questioned who, what, where and why - 
the basics of good journalism.

But there were no answers.

These were people of all ages and all walks of life - 
Sharon Moilanen of Sheboygan Falls, an employee at the 
Kohler Police Department, writers of books and Heather 
O'Grady of Sheboygan, a certified massage therapist.

John Hoppe of Sheboygan, director of UFO Wisconsin, 
investigated the incident, taking off in his car to try 
to find the source of the lights. He, too, questioned the 
incident, but too had no definitive answers.

Sgt. Nick Evans of the Fond du Lac Sheriff's Department 
said there were no reports of strange lights Saturday night.

What's your theory? Do you think there are extraterrestrial 
beings flying in our night skies? Are they living among us? 
Are there people with such skill and money to pull off such 
an amazing prank? Just what were the six strange lights in 
the sky?

     On Tuesday, July 2, 2002, at 10:30 p.m., the
eyewitness reported, "I caught a brief glimpse of three
bright yellow-orange lights in a perfectly triangular
formation--fairly close together--streaking from north to
south across the sky" over Madison (population 208,054),
the state capital of Wisconsin.
     "It took, in my estimation, less than two seconds
for these lights to move across the entire length of the
sky.  My first thought is that it was a shooting star.  I
dismissed this idea because there were those three lights
moving in a perfect triangular formation."
     "It continued to cross the sky.  About ten minutes
later, I saw the exact same formation of triangular
lights streak across the sky at what seemed like the same
speed, moving in essentially the same direction."  (Many
thanks to John Hoppe of UFO Wisconsin for this report.)


      On Tuesday, July 2, 2002, at around 3:30 a.m., Alan
A. reported, "It was a clear night, the stars were
bright, and there was no wind.  I had just got home" to
Bayfield, Wisconsin (population 611), a small town on
Chequamegon Bay on the south shore of Lake Superior.
      "I live some miles from town, and my driveway is
somewhat long.  I was driving up my driveway and, as I
always do, I looked up to see how many stars there was.
I know a little about stars, so I thought it might be
Jupiter...but this time of year, that didn't seem right.
It was east, somewhat low in the sky.  I had to take my
eyes off it to see where I was going.  I parked my truck
and got out and went in the backyard to see my dog.  I
looked up another time, and it was not there."
      "I looked down for a second and looked back up, and
there it was.  It was really bright and closer than it
was the first time.  It was not moving, and there was no
noise.  I can say it was about 75 yards (65 meters) away,
and about 50 yards (45 meters) above the trees.  The
light was white.  At first I thought it might be a light
from a helicopter, but it was not making any noise, and
it was not moving."
      "Then, what happened next really stunned me.  A
second light came on right next to the other one.  It was
also white but a little bit brighter.  I was looking
right at it with amazement when, all of a sudden, it went
out, like someone turned it off.  I stayed looking to see
if I could see a shape or something, but I didn't see
anything.  I stayed out for an hour looking but nothing
happened.  So I gave up."
(Many thanks to John Hoppe of UFO Wisconsin for this
(Editor's Comment: Bayfield is 13 miles (20 kilometers)
northeast of Ashland, the "UFO capital" of Wisconsin.
Chequamegon Bay and the towns around it, Ashland,
Bayfield, Washburn, Red Cliff and Odanah, have reported
UFO sightings since 1947.  There is a persistent local
legend that claims the existence of an underwater UFO
base out there in the bay.)


BAYFIELD, MASON COUNTY -- Alan A. reports that on July 2, 
2002, there was a dog barking a few miles away on a clear 
night at 3:32 AM.  I was driving up the long driveway and 
to the north one star seemed to be brighter then the others.  
I know a little about stars, so I thought that it might be 
Jupiter, even though it looked too low in the sky.  I 
parked my truck and looked up another time, and it was 
not there, I looked down for a second and looked back up 
and there it was.  It was really bright and much closer 
than it was the first time.  It was not moving, but it was 
now about 75 yards away, and 50 yards above the tree's.  
The light was white, at first I thought it might be a light 
from a helicopter, but it was not making any noise, and it 
was not moving.  Then a second brighter light came on right 
next to the other one.  I was amazed when all of a sudden 
it went out.

I really don't know what to say, it was last year.. I should have said 
something sooner. But my friends didn't believe me. 
It was late, or early depening on who you are, I was on my way home from 
fireworks, mand a barbeque... 
I was passing an orthodox church, and normally I would just keep my eyes 
on the street where i'm walking. Any ways, so I felt the urge to look up, 
and there it was with that wierd barely there humming.
It was pretty big at first glance, but no bigger than a very small plane.
I saw it clearly. It was shaped like a v. And had lights, round ones, 
going down each side, alternating, white and blue, and peachy.And at the

COUNCIL BLUFF -- A copier technician and friend on July 6, 
2002, reports seeing ten or more UFOs flying above he 
backyard deck on Hartman Street from 10:16 to 10:30 PM. The 
UFOs were flying west and almost looked like they were going 
to run into each other but did not. The craft were at high 
altitude an estimated 30,000 feet.  There was a commercial 
jet aircraft with flashing lights, but it did not seem to 
notice the UFO lights. The UFOs moved at a very fast pace 
in a straight line between each other.  They look like very 
bright lights, that looks like a star moving across the sky.  
They had the brightness of an on coming train.  Just picture 
a train coming down the track at night. Thanks to Stefan

Date: July 8, 2002 around Midnight
Location: Duluth, Minnesota
Source: UFO Wisconsin sighting report - witness requested to remain anonymous

I was visiting my dad in Duluth for a week in July of 2002. It gets kind of 
boring up there sometimes so that night, I asked my stepsister if I could go 
with her and her friends for the night. She told me that they were just going to 
look for a place to make a campfire, so we grabbed marshmallows and left. Her 
and I got into a car with three other girls. We passed through Gary New Duluth, 
and then we passed the road leading to the Oliver Bridge. We turned the corner 
that was on the St. Louis River and pulled over to the left side of the road 
(which was facing the river). My sister was in the back seat, to the right of 
me, her window facing the water. We were parked on the outlook. We sat there for 
about maybe three minutes, pointing our flashlights down the hill, looking for 
trails. We spotted one, and one of the girls got out of the car to check it out 
further. She walked probably 25 feet away from the car and her flashlight died, 
so she came running back to the car, scared. We talked about just going home but 
my sister didn't want to, saying, "We just got here, there's no point in leaving 
so soon!" So we sat there for a little while, talking. A few minutes later, the 
conversation died and I glanced at the time, which was 11:58. My sister was 
looking out the window and suddenly she said, "Look! On the water!" So I looked 
out the window and I saw a very bright white light, hovering over the water. I 
couldn't stop looking at it, and it appeared to start moving towards us very 
slowly. I thought I was imagining it moving, but all the other girls gasped and 
said, "Look! IT's moving!!!" So I turned toward the driver and said, "Let's go 
now, let's go NOW!" And she looked frozen or something, looking out the 
windshield and I moved forward and looked out the windshield and I saw an 
identical light hovering over the trees. And then, one of us noticed ANOTHER 
light on the other side of the car (the side opposite the river) also hovering 
over trees. At this point, we were all really freaked out so the driver turned 
around to back up and noticed ANOTHER light over the trees behind us. She kept 
backing up to turn around and all the lights grew brighter. The light on the 
lake shot forwards towards us, followed by the rest of the "lights" (I don't 
know in what order). We pulled out onto the road and headed back into Gary New 
Duluth. We passed the road to the Oliver bridge and to my surprise and horror, 
three of the four lights were on the right and left and back sides of the car. 
They were pretty large balls of light, I'd say the size of a small car. They 
were about four feet above the trees and houses and about fifty feet in from the 
road. They were shaped like a triangle, we could just make out the outline. We 
started panicking when the lights suddenly sped up and moved in front of the 
car. We pulled onto a side street and looked behind us. We were now in downtown 
Duluth. To make a long story shorter, we drove as far up as skyline, and we 
finally stopped driving because we were running out of gas. We pulled onto the 
Skyline Parkway and the "lights" moved out on top of the harbor in the middle of 
the night sky, and started moving towards the direction of Gary New Duluth 
again, and then shot in the opposite direction very fast and about five seconds 
later, we couldn't see them anymore. It was as if the lights knew we were 
looking at them and chased us until we were too tired to play their game 
anymore. Since then, I have never seen anything like that again. I was never a 
believer in UFO's or anything of the sort but because of that strange...thing 
that happened to me and my sister and three friends, I am now. And the more 
bizarre thing is, there is no military aircraft testing sites around this 
area....AND, I have talked to five different people in the past year that live 
on the St. Louis river that have seen similar lights. A woman that lives in 
Oliver on the St. Louis river, 57 years old, said that a few times every year 
she sees a light hovering over the water. I have ruled out the possibility of a 
boat light, because the lights we saw were much larger than a boat's light, and 
pulsated as they moved closer to us.


On Sunday, July 14, 2002, just after 4 a.m., a woman
eyewitness in Ashland, Wisconsin (population 8,620)
reported, "I had just logged off the Internet, went to
the bathroom and got a snack.  Then I fed my cat, got my
nightgown on and then went to bed.  I got just about all
nestled in when a big flash of light came through the
window, and weird noises began, and the whole house
      "The lights kept turning on and off--the TV kept
turning on and off also.  It would get very dark, and
then bright flashing lights would appear."
      "I could not move.  It was like I was frozen.  I'm
still shaking.  I cannot get it out of my mind.  I was
not dreaming this.  I swear--it really happened."
(Editor's Note:  Ashland is sometimes considered "the UFO
capital of Wisconsin.")



MILWAUKEE -- Bruce S says, "I was at a cookout at my friends 
house on July 14, 2002, and we were helping my buddies daughter 
track down jets in the sky.  At around 5:45 P.M. (it was sunny 
and clear) my cousin saw a jet and pointed it out to the child. 
He then stated to me, " What's that next to the jet?" I looked 
and I figured it was Venus or a new supernova or something.  We 
argued back and forth whether or not the thing was moving, and 
eventually it started to move.  I kept track of it for 2-3 min. 
and watched it slowly fade away. Now I know well enough that you 
cannot see "normal" stars in clear daylight, I know what a plane 
looks like and it definitely was no bird.  There were 3 other 
witnesses also. The object looked like a normal white star, with 
no pulsing. It's distance was very, very high. It's motion was 
very slow, with a slow fade.  Thanks to UFOWisconsin 


DUNDEE -- Danny N. reports, "I was on the public fishing 
pier at the Long Lake Campground on July 14, 2002, and 
observed a large sphere with green, blue and possibly red 
lights spaced evenly on it at 4:00 AM. It was high in the 
sky and moved slowly to the east. I could see several white 
blinking lights, although they were faded in color and they 
were some distance away from me. I had a nibble on my rod 
so I tended to that and when I looked up that object was 
gone but there was another object moving in the same 
direction. It was triangular in shape and had lights in rows 
of 1,3,5,7 in red, orange, and yellow colors. It was high 
in the sky and it also moved slowly to the east.  Thanks to 
UFOwisconsin. http://www.ufowisconsin.com



      On Wednesday, July 17, 2002, the female witness,
A.A., reported "a sighting of 12 lights forming a perfect
circle, hovering at approximately 20,000 feet (6,000
meters).  First sighted at 10:30 p.m. Central time.  All
12 lights appeared to move together, then back to the
position where we first spotted them.  They approached
from the south," moving into hover position over Prior
Lake, Minnesota (population 15,917), a town on Highway 13
about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of Minneapolis.
      "They were circular lights, the size of the moon,
evenly spread in a perfect circle, all moving together.
Appeared not to be joined, although they moved together
in perfect unison.  Very slow-moving."  (Email Form


DULUTH -- On June 17, 2002, at 1:30 AM, the witness 
reports seeing a blinking white light, that did not stay 
long, The witness states, "It was round and slightly larger 
than the North Star and was seen in the sky above Morgan 
Park in Duluth for about five minutes."

August, 2002 Reports

On Sunday, August 4, 2002, at 10:36 p.m., in Three
Lakes, Wisconsin, 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of
Rhinelander, the male witness reported, "I was on
vacation with my family at three cabins by the lake.  My
uncle and I made a fire.  When we finished the fire, we
sat out on the pier and looked at the sky for a satellite
that we see every year up there."
      "Then, suddenly, we saw a whitish-color, circle-
shaped object heading south from the north (Michigan's
Upper Peninsula--J.T.)  It had no sound or wings or a
tail like a comet or an asteroid.  But it was weird

because the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis--J.T.)
appeared, but the shape wasn't the Northern Lights
because it didn't change color (like the aurora--J.T.) or
move (undulate--J.T.) like the Northern Lights.  It was
moving about 70 miles per hour (112 kilometers per hour).
That's why we saw it for ten seconds."
(Editor's Comment: The description of the auroral effect
is interesting.  Did the witnesses see a UFO actually
coming out of hyperspace?)



On Monday, August 5, 2002, at 10:40 p.m., Scott T.
was in Mount Pleasant, a suburb of Racine, Wisconsin, and
"I was driving north on Highway 31 about a half-mile from
Highway 11.  I happened to notice something out of the
corner of my eye.  When I looked, I could see the object.
It was just over the treeline and the size of a quarter
(USA 25-cent coin--J.T.) and very bright white.  It was
about 5 miles (8 kilometers) from me in the sky, maybe a
little closer."
      "It was hovering there for a few seconds, and then
it turned on its axis, and it seemed to stretch out to
about the size of my fist.  I could kind of make out four
lights that were very close together, but the light was
too bright to really tell.  Then some trees blocked my
view for ten seconds and, since I was heading north, I
figured I would see it when the trees were out of my
way."  However, "it had vanished at the stoplight at the
intersection of (Highways) 31 and 11.  I searched the
sky, but I never saw it again."  (For the Ashland
sighting, see the Duluth, Minn. News-Tribune for August
9, 2002, "UFOs still in Northland?" page 1B.  For the

Hoppe of UFOWisconsin.)

Strobing Satellites ?

Watching the sky on the shore of Northern Lake Superior for auroras & satellites 
early Monday morning. Saw an early (just after sunset) bright satellite/iss…very nice. 
Also saw several shooting stars…very nice. As the night wore on and into the early 
hours of the morning, I saw a number of satellites/orbital objects. Characteristics: 
very very dim, some fading in and out. One object in particular caught my attention. 
A very dim satellite/object moving near the zenith (top) of my field of view, slowly 
dimming even more, then suddenly, a relatively weak strobe (bluish light, same color 
as object), followed several seconds later by a very very bright strobe (astoundingly 
bright), followed by perhaps another several strobes of various intervals/intensities. 
Object faded, and was very dim to begin with.

I have seen beautiful satellites before which are apparently tumbling and reflecting 
the light back to me in the proper manner to give me a “light house” effect…that is a 
rare treat. But a strobing satellite ? Do some satellites come equipped w/ strobes? 
My thinking is a military spy satellite with a given wavelength HID strobe where a 
high gain can be applied to that wavelength to amplify the illuminated image relatively 
free of noise. Another theory is just an ordinary function of satellites so a ground 
observer can do a quick and easy visual check to verify proper functioning of the 
satellite (in other words, just another cheap easy, fail safe check…why not). My 
final theory is that it may be part of a function to freak out paranoid terrorists (and I 
DO HOPE it freaks them out!). Any thoughts? This is the second time I have seen 
this sort of thing. The first one I ever saw was just a bit after 9-11-01, and was 
observed over St. Paul, MN. Looked like a satellite, and then one HUGE strobe flash 
(brighter than the one I saw over the lake). These objects all looked like satellites to 
me. Very dim, moving, tiny tiny stars, very difficult to see and follow.
((NUFORC Note: We believe the first possibility to be ruled out would be tumbling 
boosters and space debris, which reflects sunlight in a pulsating fashion. Just a 
guess. PD))

Triangular light formation, tree top height above my head in Aitkin Mn.
That night my sister was spending the night, with my wife and I. They
were in the house and I was on the deck, looking up at the stars. The
kids were asleep and the sky was clear. No more than 5 mins. had gone by
when from over the house, just above the tree tops three white, brite
lights forming a narrow triangle flew above my head. I could see no body
attached to them. They were pointed straight ahead like car lights. If
there would have been a craft attached to the lights I would have been
able to see it. After all, it was so low to the ground if I would have
had a rock I would have been able to hit it easily. They flew straight
accross the field and over the tree line. The speed was to slow for an
airplane, but fast enough where their should have been some wind sound,
there wasn't even sound from an engine. I watched it most of the way
accross the field. My wife and sister could not have made it out in time
to see.  ((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. PD))

BELLEVILLE -- The witnesses went outside to watch a meteor 
shower on August 11, 2002, at 5:00 AM.  The witness reports, 
"I was watching the meteors when I noticed a strange object 
in the sky off to my right that was just hovering there and 
was dark in color."  After sitting outside for a while, I 
noticed it was still hovering unlike the meteors and stars 
that were moving.  I got up from my seat and started staring 
at it and I realized it was metallic in color.  It was kind 
of low to the ground and just hovering with a dome on top 
of it.  Then I decided to walk closer to get a better look 
and when I got closer, it just took off and disappeared 
into the night sky.  This kind of gave me the chills and 
scared me so I went in the house. This object made a 
humming noise of some sort.  Thanks to Peter Davenport NUFORC

Going West over Hwy 36 and B2 when almost ran over curb when sister saw object, 
which was a flying saucer, directly above and in front very close also going west and 
thought was going to land at a trucking company near there, where her son works in a 
big parking lot. Both sisters got out in parking lot while it hovered over other end of 
parking lot. While waiting for someone to come out it moved behind trees and could 
only see the flashing red lights, like coming out of it and then disappeared. While 
leaving and son came out, but son only saw lights because they were then going 
away from.



GRAND RAPIDS -- While driving on I-96 west bound on August 18, 
2002, a couple looked north and saw a disc shaped craft in

We saw two balls of light aimed at each other and after they passed each other 
one dissappeared, the other stayed and changed colors.

As me and my boyfriend were driving down the road we spotted two balls of light in the 
Southwest sky. We decided to follow it and came to a clearing, when we got to this 
spot they were both now in the Southeast sky. We continued to watch them and all the 
sudden they just started moving towards each other almost like they were going to collide 
with one another. They got so close to each other that we could only see one ball of light 
as they were passing each other. After they had passed each other, the one moving to 
the left all the sudden just dissappeared, it was there and then it started moving fast and 
then gone. The one moving the other way kept moving and all the sudden just stopped. 
It seemed as though it was circling a specific area and while it was doing this it would 
lift up and then drop and then move left or right. When we could just see the one it was 
changing colors from red to white to an almost glowing blue/green and it looked like it 
was spinning. We watched it for about 15-20 minutes and it just stayed in the same 
spot not moving anywhere, just lifing, decending, moving right/left and changing colors. 
We could not believe what we were seeing as we had never seen anything like it before. 
It couldn't have been a plane because planes do not look like they are going to collide 
and planes don't stay one spot for this long. We were in awe.

Location: Columbia Heights, MN
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5-6 Seconds 
Triangle shaped object traveling east to west approximately 45 degrees above northern horizon.
While observing an unusually strong display of aurora borealis I noticed an object traveling 
from east to west approximately 45 degrees above the northern horizon. This object traveled 
across approximately 90 degrees of visible sky before I lost it behind ground clutter. The best 
description I can give would be a plastic coat hanger with the hook at the top removed, leaving 
a flattened triangle with rounded corners. It appeared to be either clear like acrylic with many 
small lights inside, or perhaps a light gray that matched the background sky color with a highly 
reflective surface in which case the many small lights may have been reflections of ground 
lights. I have been an aviation buff for most of my life and this was no aircraft I have ever 
seen. While the shape was reminiscient of a hanglider there was no "swooping motion" typical 
of "kites". Since there was no sound it couldn't have been an ultralight either,they use very 
noisy small engines and this was silent. The movement was straight and level so must have 
been powered flight. the size at arm length appeared to be about three inches wingtip to 
wingtip and about one inch nose to tail. While I can't say the exact distance from me I have 
the impression this was about the size of a small private aircraft which would give it an 
altitude of a few hundred feet, certainly low enough to hear engines or see someone hanging 
below a hanglider. Speed would be hard to estimate, but it only took five or six seconds to 
cross my line of sight, much faster than any private plane.
((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. Satellites generally do not have a westerly component 
to their orbit, and they do not move across the sky as dramatically rapidly as the witness

My 2 friends and I were star gazing in the southern sky,almost straigt above, when we 
all witnessed that looked like 3 satelites moving together in a arrow shaped formation, 
they were of the same brightness and size of satelites. None of us had ever witnessed 
2 or more satelites moving together before, which made us all wonder if they were 
satelites. They seemed to be individual, and not a perfect formation. The first one in 
front disappeared after about 12 seconds then the next 2 disappeared a couple seconds 
later.   ((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witnesses observed the three satellites that 
move in formation, and which are reported to our Center frequently. They are thought 
to be three U. S. Navy satellites, which are part of the "N.O.S.S." program. PD))

Duration:10 seconds
Silent delta-shaped object seen in Savage, MN against clear October night sky.
Observed a delta-shaped object in clear skies. Object had 3 soft white lights at the 
vertices which shone downward. Approximately 40 feet in width. No other discernable 
lights or charactaristics. Moved in a south by southwesterly direction at approximately 
150kts. Appeared to be about 1500 feet AGL. Made no sound, though it appeared close 
enough to be audible if it had jet enines. Left no contrails. Observed maintaining straight 
and level course for about 5 seconds, then rolled right to a 45 degree angle which 
caused the downward lights to shine brighter, as they were directed more towards the 
observer. After 1 second, object then rolled left back to a straight and level position. 
Object never appeared to change course or altitude during this rolling activity. Lost track 
of object due to distance and the horizon. Event took place near the intersection of 
Highway 13 and County Road 42 in Savage, MN while facing westward, and up at about 
a 30 degree angle. Background was a dark sky with a few visible stars, including Orion 
in the east. Highway 13 was illuminated, but obscured by a small hill in front of the 
observer. Slight glow seen over the crest of the hill from these lights, as well as the 
columns of light from Lake to the west. Object was just west of Highway 13, but certainly 
east of Lake, as it was observed passing in front of the beams of light from the casino. 
Observer is a pilot and is familliar with the air traffic around Minneapolis International 
Airport, about 20 miles to the northeast. This object did not conform to any recognizable 
aircraft lighting or flight patterns around MSP. No navigational lighting, beacon, or landing 
lights were observed. Object could not have been part of the air traffic pattern from MSP, 
as it was far too low. Also, the sudden rolling activity seemed very uncharacteristic for 
commercial aircraft. Lack of sound and contrails is very curious.



SAVAGE -- MUFON's Bill McNeff reports, "A pilot observed a 
delta-shaped object in clear skies on October 14, 2002, flying 
south at 1:22 AM". The object had three soft white lights at its 
vertices which shone downward. It was about forty feet in width 
flying at about 1500 feet altitude and at 150 knots. The pilot 
stated, "It flew straight and level for about five seconds, then 
rolled right to a 45 degree angle which caused the downward 
lights to shine brighter, as they were directed more toward me -
- the object then rolled left back to a straight and level 
position without making a sound." The object never appeared to 
change course or altitude during this rolling activity and was 
lost on the horizon. The object was observed passing in front of 
the beams of light from the Mystic Lake Casino. The observer is 
familiar with the air traffic around Minneapolis International 
Airport, about 20 miles to the northeast. This object did not 
conform to any recognizable aircraft navigational lighting or 
flight patterns. The sudden rolling activity and lack of sound 
is very uncharacteristic for commercial aircraft. Thanks to Bill

last fall in late oct. i was going to work and noticed a depression in a cattail slough. 
a week later went out to look at it the cattails were laid down flat in what i believe 
was a triangle shape. pressed flat all the cattails around it were up. have pictures 
will send soon see what you think 2 years ago i had seen a ufo triangle shape near 
the same area. wonder if you saw anything like this before. is this what they term 
crop circles ? nothing else could explain what happened there. by the way my ufo 
sighting it was behind a hog barn and very bright lights on when i approached the

Sighting Date/Time: 10-16-2002  7:09PM
Sighting Location: Junction of I-94 and county 55

Sighting Description: Traveling east on I-94 I looked up at 
the moon. It was at approximately 30' above the horizon, and 
3/4 full. To the immediate right of the moon I saw what I 
thought was a planet. A few seconds later, I noticed it was 
descending. It was obscured by a small cloud for about 12 
seconds. When it reappeared it was apparent it was also moving 
slightly to the left. By time it was half way between the moon 
and the horizon it had traversed to the left side of the moon. 
It continued down until it dissapeared below the horizon. The 
whole thing only took less than two minutes. The light never 
blinked. No plane or fuselage of any kind could be seen. Only 
the steady, white light.

Any information as to what I saw, would be appreciated. I would 
also like to know if anyone else saw it.

Dimly lit Boomerang shaped object in St. Cloud, Minnesota
I was bringing the trash to the curb, when I noticed an object hovering above.. kind of 
like a boomerang shaped object, dimly lit.. I could just barely make out the outline 
against the night sky.  In the center was a dimly lit round red window or light.. the object 
appeared to be a couple hundred feet high; perhaps 70-100 feet from tip to tip; while 
hovering the object made a slight circular motion.  The circles became larger in 
diameter; it then made a spiraling maneuver and sped off like a bullet to the south 
over the trees in the woods behind my house. (I live on a wooded 1-acre lot in a semi-
metropolitan area).  This whole time, the object made no sound.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the following report describes Venus in the eastern sky, 
although that is an educated guess. Unless the witnesses saw TWO bright lights in the 
eastern sky at 0500 hrs., the light they were observing, we feel, must have been Venus. 
However, please look at the next report from Cumberland, RI, for this date. PD))

 Large, black, foil / wing flying low over field near highway in dayimte.

 My fiancee and I were driving north on highway 94 north of Rogers, and south of 
St. Cloud, when I looked to the west (my left) and noticed something gliding over a 
nearby field. My fiancee was driving, and I was a passenger in the backseat with her 
elderly grandmother in the front. I told her to take a look, but since she was driving,
ahe only caught a short glimpse of the object. Her grandmother was unfortunately 
unable to turn and look at it. My fiancee told me she had seen it, and asked if I could 
tell what it was, to which I replied, "not sure, but it doesn't look like any kind of plane 
I've ever seen." As she continued to drive, the object was hovering slightly above the 
field at about 20 feet or so, then began to "sprint" in the same direction as our car 
was traveling (north). It quickly caught up to our speed (about 75 mph.), and then 
rose up to about 200 feet or so and stalled, then dropped to about 20 feet again, 
turned 180 degrees and took off in the opposite direction (south). Once more it 
stopped, hovered for 2-3 seconds, then turned once more and took off at a fast pace. 
Finally, we were to far down the highway to see anymore.

 I am not an aviator or engineer of any kind, but from my distance (about 200-250 
yards away), it appeared to be approximately 20-25 feet from "wingtip" to "wingtip", 
and was about 4-5 feet wide in the middle. It was all black with no visible lights, and 
was in the shape of an air-foil or kinda folded wing; like an upside down, elongated 
U. It appeared to have no external propeller or engine, and no "cockpit" or apparent 
area for a passenger. I saw no people anywhere nearby in the field to make me think 
it was some sort of radio-controlled airplane; if it was, it was the largest radio 
controlled object I have ever seen! It was broad daylight at about 10:30 am with partly 
cloudy skies, and a slight wind from the west.

 I have included a map showing the approximate area we were, the direction we 
were traveling, the direstion(s) the object was traveling, and an illustration of what I 
saw. I hope this information is helpful, and I hope someone else saw what I saw.

ST. PAUL -- Bill McNeff MN MUFON SD writes at, "About 200 AM on the 
morning of December 30, 2002, an independent truck contractor was 
heading west on I-94 around 47 miles east of St. Paul.  Something 
made him look to the south and he saw an unidentified object at 
about 45 degrees elevation heading northwest.  It appeared to pass 
between two airplanes.  He said he felt energy coming from this 
object and received a message that he "should report this and that 
two other people had also seen it".  It was not as bright as a star 
but was in the shape of two spheres pressed together to form a 
rough egg shape. The object glowed white with a little blue.  It 
rose about 30 degrees before he lost sight of it in the northwest. 
It was about the size of a muzzleloader ball at arm's length.  He 
left a message at CUFOS and Mark Rodeghier notified us.
