Shape: Cigar
Duration:2 minutes
This has happened so long ago but the event is very clear yet. It was an evening, on the way home from watching a movie, I approached a steep hill on my bike 2 blocks from my home, I decided to walk. Surrounded by large Pine Trees on both sides. I heard a whiring noise similar to a simi-in the distance traveling on a freeway. I knew the noise was above me and when I looked up there was nothing, scanning to the right of me I seen a large cigar shaped object floating/hovering, moving slowly , finally clearing itself from the trees, and just above the trees. Approx 70 to 100 Feet high. The object moved at a slow pace directly above and slightly to the front of me. From right to left I watched as I was froze in one spot on the road. I remember how scared I was. The Object glowed kind of a goldish brown, it was like looking into a black light, with fuzzy edges. I would guess it was 200/300 feet long and 60 feet wide. It slowing went out of my sight do to trees and the noise stopped. I raced home to tell my parants. I 15 years old. I had tears in my eyes as I told them. I remember hearing of alot of sightings in Wisc back then. I never went public with this information at the time fearing ridicule etc.
