Location: Oshkosh, WI
Shape: Disk
Duration:1 minute
Black disk,changing course,going straight up very fast for half a second and continuing on its course.

I just stepped out my front door which faces east and looked up. There were white cumulus clouds floating across the sky and it was mostly overcast and hazy. Just to my left,coming from the northwest,was a black disc. It was clearly visible against the white clouds. I looked very close and it had no wings,no markings of any kind. It made no sound. It turned and moved straight to the south. When it was directly in front of me to the east it went straight up in the air about 500 ft. That is just an estimation. Then it continued south but was gaining a little altitite as it went. I watched it untill it was out of sight. I called my son outside and he also observed the craft for about half a minute. I can't estimate how high it was but it was under the cloud cover and was easy to see because of it's black color. I observed it about one minute and my son for about half that time. It was moving fairly fast but not extremely fast. Faster than a jet would go across the sky.
