I'M REPORTING THIS BECAUSE ON ART BELL'S SATURDAY, JULY 31 SHOW, SEVERAL CALLERS IN OTHER AREAS REPORTED SEEING AN OBJECT SIMILAR TO WHAT I SAW.

I HAD CONCLUDED IT MIGHT BE VENUS, ALTHOUGHT IT SEEMED OUT OF PLACE.

I WASN'T ABLE TO LOOK AT THE SAME SPOT IN THE SKY FOR ABOUT A WEEK BECAUSE OF CLOUDS AND MIST UNTIL LAST NIGHT, AT 1AM WHEN THE SKY WAS CLEAR. I COULD SEE NO OBJECT OF ANY SIZE.

ANYWHERE NEAR THE PLACE I HAD PREVIOUSLY SEEN THE BRIGHT OBJECT.

I LIVE IN CENTRAL WISCONSIN. I SAW THIS BRIGHT OBJECT ABOUT 2 WEEKS AGO.

IT SEEMED TO BE UNUSUALLY LARGE AND BRIGHT IN AN UNLIKELY SPOT IN THE SKY.

THIS LOOKED LIKE A VERY LARGE STAR OR A PLANET.

IT APPEARED SLIGHTLY NORTH OF DUE EAST, AT ABOUT A 35-40 DEGREE HIGHT.

I HAD NOTICED IT WHEN DRIVING HOME FROM A 24 HOUR WALMART AT 1AM.

WHEN I GOT HOME I LOOKED AT IT WITH AN 8 POWER SCOPE.

IT WAS ROUND, NOT BLINKING, AND SEEMED TO BE REFLECTING SUN LIGHT, SUCH AS A PLANET.

IT WAS ABOUT 1/8 INCH IN DIAMETER AS SEEN WITH THE SCOPE.

IT DID NOT APPEAR TO MOVE AND WAS IN VIEW AS LONG AS I WATCHED, ABOUT 15 MINUTES.
