Location: Madison, WI
Shape: Disk
Duration:2-3 min.
Three disks appear in the West, stop at zenith, and proceed Eastward a rapid rate of speed.

While observing the evening sky while fishing on Lake Wisconsin my eye caught a flashing in the clouds toward the West where the sun was setting. Three gold colored disks appeared out of the clouds and slowed to a stop when reaching zenith. They appeared to be looking down at a beautiful scene below of a broad river set in a valley.

My grandfather, a friend and myself could detect a slight motion as they stood in rather tight triangular formation above us, kind of wobbling. After some 5 to 10 seconds the lead ship slowing began moving Southeast towards Madison and the others brought up the triangular formation. I would estimate their elevation at about 3-4 thousand feet and they looked about the size of a penny at arms length. They soon accelerated at a tremendous rate and were out of sight on the horizon within 3 to four seconds. It was a daylight sighting I will never forget.
