Sighting Report
Occurred : 1/14/2003 19:00 (Entered as : 1/15/03 19:00)
Reported: 1/17/2003 2:03:27 PM 14:03
Posted: 3/4/2003
Location: Wisconsin Dells, WI
Shape: Light
Duration:1 1/2 hours
We saw 10 or more, very bright, beautifully colored round lights, darting very fast back and forth across the sky.

We live in the country where it is very dark so had a good view. We have not talked to anyone else who saw these objects at this same time. My husband has seen similar objects before in this same area. This was my first sighting, and it was the most remarkable, awe inspiring thing I have ever seen and hope to see it again.

The objects were very bright lights that seemed to be round and of numerous beautiful colors: pink, blue, yellow, white, purple, green. They were not all lit at the same time. One would go off and one or more others would come on. After the light went off at each sight, we could see small, dim white lights flowting around that area. Then there would be a break of 5 to 10 minutes and the round, colored objects would appear again in a different spot in the sky. The most dramatic display was a line of six in a row. They would take turns going on and off and the most lit at one time was three. We could see the shadow of those that were off when the others would light. This went on for maybe 10-20 seconds before they all disappeared. All would be dark and then it would start over with one or two lighting at one time in a different area. We viewed them from about 19:00-20:00 hours. Then there was a half hour before we saw two more. That was the last we saw of them. They seemed to dart around, moving very fast from one location to another. Shortly after we saw the first two or three we also noticed 5 airplanes seeming to be following them. We saw other planes but they didn't seem to be interested in these objects. The five planes however seemed to try and stay with or near the objects. When all the objects disappeared, so did the planes.

((FOLLOW-UP COMMUNICATION FROM WITNESS))

Similar sighting seen and reported on this site by others from Wisconsin

I reported this earlier and may have had the date wrong. I said 1/15/03, but it may have been 1/14/03. I talked with a neighbor and she saw the same thing we did. She discribed the colors as amber. I said they were multi colored. In talking with my husband we agree with her. There are at least a couple others from WI that reported this same thing on 1/14.
