UFO's spotted in Central WI. Line of lights.

I was driving home from Madison back up to the Stevens Point area on a Thursday night.

We witnessed bright, white lights in the western sky just north of Portage, WI. The lights varied. A single light would appear, and sometimes multiply into many separate lights. At times there were as many as 5 all in a horizontal, straight line. The lights would stay in place for a few moments and then disappear, only to appear a few minutes later. At one point there were two lights that turned into two separate lines of 6 lights in total. The lights were brighter and larger than stars, but appeared lower than stars in the sky, yet higher than fireworks would appear.

The entire time, the lights expanded westward and horizontally. Even though we were traveling 70 mph in a car, the lights remained in the same part of the sky.

After 15 minutes of seeing these lights appear, disappear, and repeat, they finally stopped.
