Location: Belleville, WI
|white to yellow to orange light in the Southern Wisconsin sky
Having seen something a half hour before this (report already submitted to you), I drove back out to the area myself. I did spot the light, changing from white to yellow to orange and traveling what seemed to be north/northwest. I found a high hill to position my car on and stopped. I watched it move N and it just faded away and I could not see it anymore. I had been sitting there maybe 30 seconds. The total sighting was about 4 minutes. Just wanted you to know that at your urging on the phone today, I did call our little local newspaper. He said that he had gotten a call about 2 wks ago from someone who had seen something very similar. He is planning on putting something in the paper (without names) and I urged him to list your website and your phone number. I also told him that you recommended a tripod and getting time, sight duration, and direction detail. He also said that my description was absolutely identical to the sighting that our local police officer and friend had about 13 years ago here. Identical. 13 years ago was when Belleville had a large, large amt of sightings.
