Location: Milwaukee, WI
Shape: Formation
Duration:1 1/2 hours
ufo's formed a circle over our roof and hovered there for about 11/2 hours

My son ((name deleted)) and his girlfriend had gone for gas , as they came home they noticed an odd formation of what they thought were stars over the roof, ((name deleted)) yelled for us to step on the deck and have a look,my husband and I did and It struck me odd that the stars had nevr been in a circle before, we all stared for a bit the one in the middle seemed to flash in a row and the ones around it responded with flashes, each in its turn.As we stood there puzzled my daughter ((name deleted)) and her futer husband came to see what we were talking about and also thought it looked strange. My oldest daughter came out to see what had now gotten us all looking up and as she turned to look around, out of the corner of my eye, i see something streak acrossed the sky heading north , as I watched it another was passing it coming south and I ran for my camera (digital powershotA300) I stepped back onto the deck and notice that 2 of the stars that had formed the circle were now missing, my husband told me it was coming back , as i turned to see it, the second one zipped so fast past it was a split second. I turned back to the formation and noticed that the 2 emty spots were no longer emty. I took my camera and focused on the middle of the formation and snapped a few pictures, as i did so, the middle object seemed to lower its self, the entire formations seemed to shift from east to west and stood still again a bit closer. I took a few more shots and all stayed to watch but myself and daughter, we loaded the shots onto the computer and i sketched the formation on my paint program, as i pulled up my photos I could see only one clear view of what was there and it in no way looked like a normal aircraft or a star, it was boomarang shaped with a row of lights around the outer shape. At one point while looking at the formation, there was a bright flash of red that seemed to go to one of the smaller crafts in the circle. At 4:30 am all came in to see the picture and to agree on sketch, we all went out to look again and it was completly gone!! we were in the house for only about 60 seconds and all went back to look and found nothing! myself and my son ((name deleted)) kept hearing a high pitched tone in our ears which kept me up till dawn. Since that night we have all looked to see if we could be wrong, that it may have really been stars and the formation has never been seen since!I should mention that it was mostly clear skys with only a few high shreads of clouds. the sky seemed particularlly filled with stars, since we are in the city, its rare to see it such. This is not our first siting ,but is the only one that left a photo to prove it! If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
