Location: Genesee Depot, WI
Shape: Cigar
Duration:approx. 2 minutes
Linear, brightly lit, series of 5 or so round lights in sky, moved sloly if at all.

I was driving south on highway 83 and just approaching Genesee Depot. To me left, towards the east, I could see a very brightly lit object that was located beneath a star. It didn't seem to move much and may have changed length slightly and gradually as I watched it (as if it were turning?). It consisted of several, mayby 5, VERY BRIGHT yellowish lights that appeared to be circular in shape and in a perfect line, very close together. I thought that this could be how the windows of an airplane might look if it were rather close (it seemed rather large) and if it had only a limited number of passenger windows. It was just starting to get dark though, the sky was well lit and overcast and the stars were just starting to show as I recall. The lights SEEMED to be FAR too bright for aircraft windows especially considering that it wasn't really dark yet. The sky was a sort of grey color.

The extreme brightness of the lights indicated to me that they might have been actual exterior lights (not windows) but they didn't strobe at all, were yellowish, were too large in number and I don't think that they occur in a straight line, one right after the other on aircraft. No strobing navigation lights were seen.

I continued to drive towards and then into this small town and looked at it very frequently to try to identify it. when I entered the town and turned a corner, my view was blocked by trees for about 15 seconds or so. When the view was again clear,the object was not at all visible. It was large and seemingly near and very brightly illuminated just seconds before. I saw the star that I assumed was the right one but looked around and could not see this object. I wondered if it were a plane (lear jet as far as the approximate number of windows is concerned?) that could have turned and become not visible. This didn't seem likely to me at the time.
