Location: Walworth County (eastern part), WI
Shape: Oval
Duration:1 minute
Light grey flattened ball, about the size of a muskmelon, with no propellors, fins, wings, lights, markings, holes, depressions, dents, sharp edges, exhaust, smoke, or apparatus attached to it. The light grey color was matte, with no gloss, glow, shine or flashing. The object was flying straight and true with no wiggling, wavering, shaking, etc. at about 65 mph when first seen. It appeared to have heat waves coming off the front and sides of it. It did not appear to be spinning. Because of my viewing angle at different times I could easily see the back, bottom, left and right sides of the object. If it had a noise I did not hear it. On Sunday, July 25, 1999 at 11:35 a.m. I was driving west on Highway D about 1 mile west of Honey Creek, Walworth County, SE Wisconsin, and I saw the object to the NW and it was about 35 yd from the highway, it was about 50 ft above the ground, about 50 to 60 yds distance from me. Its flight path followed the road I was driving. When I drove faster to get closer to it, it flew faster. I accelerated to 75 mph, then 80 mph to keep it in sight and it was outpacing me. After about 50 seconds of following it, it made a left turn (heading south) to cross the road in front of me. At that point I was a little closer and I saw its profile and it looked the same in appearance. When it reached the south side of the road it made a right turn and headed west along the road again, about the same height off the ground and distance from the road. Again, it had the same appearance. I saw trees ahead that were going to block my vision and I sped up to 85 mph. It was still outpacing me. I did not see it for about 2 seconds when it was behind those trees. When I drove beyond the trees, it was gone. I searched everywhere and could not see it again. I parked on the shoulder of the road and again searched everywhere and could not see it. I saw it for approximately 1 minute and for 1.3 miles and I figure the object was flying atleast 90 mph when it disappeared.
