Location: Merton, WI
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Light in the distance that did not move, or blink, and in the blink of an eye it was gone.

My buddy and I were out ice fishing, and we decided to stay out until a little after dark. At around 6:45 pm, we decided we had enough and began to clean up our tip-ups. As we left the shanty, I noticed a light out to the west that was brighter than any other star in the sky, and it was a little more orange than the stars. I got my friends attention and he saw it too. It was not moving at all. It stayed in the same place for roughly 20-30 seconds, and then it was gone. I can’t explain what it is, but I know it was not a plane because it was not moving, and there were no flashing lights. I don’t know what else it could be.
