Location: Milwaukee, WI
Shape: Circle
Duration:2 minutes
At 11:00 PM lighting struck a silent, unlight craft and then started to glow a brilliant yellow illumination and flout across the sky

I was watching the sky to my south observing a lighting storm/thunderstorm. I saw a bolt of lighting come across the sky from west to east. In its path the lighting hit an unidentified object that had no lights or markers on it. The lighting did not continue across the sky, it went straight down after hitting this object. the object looked to be a circular long object. The object was a mile or two away at the point of impact. It moved across the sky faster than a plane and as light as a feather. It looked as though this object was slowly declining out of the sky. It was a neon yellow glowing haze/aura/light after the lighting hit it. It was just at the lower level of the cloud line(Few thousand feet). As it passed directly over my head it made no sound at all. At this point there was no thunder or rain to dampen the sound of a plane. Several minutes after the object had passed a plane had flown by at a similar level and not directly over my head, and it made normal airplane noise. The plane had several lights on it(like the F.A.A. requires), as the U.F.O. only had one light that glowed on and almost off but still bright enough to see.

((NUFORC Note: Possible overflight of the ISS. I don't have time to check. PD))
