Location: Cedarbug, WI
|20 reddish orangish lights hovering east of Cedarburg, WI.
Approximately 20 reddish/orangish lights in the sky probably spread out over a mile or more. No discernable pattern in their positions. I was heading southbound towards Milwaukee on I43, south of Grafton, passing Cedarburg, and approaching Mequon. I saw about 20 lights to the east in a place where I had never seen lights before. Seemed to be too high in the sky to be towards and too spread out. I was focused on the road, but they appeared to be hovering. No specific shape other than lights in the sky. I kept glancing back as I passed and they remained. I took the Mequon exit and doubled back to head northbound again towards Cedarbug. I saw that the lights remained. I had my Iphone set to video mode, but had not begun to record as I wanted to pull over first. I took the Cedarburg exit eastbound and pulled over and noticed 3 other cars pulled over as well.
Although I was hesitant to, I called 911 to explain what I had seen, tried to switch to video mode on my Iphone, but could not. By this point, I noticed closer to 7 lights slowly moving in a northbound direction, all lights still spread out in no specific pattern. Got disconnected from the 911 call.
A woman with her two teenage kids came up to me and mentioned that they could not get their Iphone to videotape this either. As we were visiting over a couple of minutes, the lights were moving away and then just faded out.
Sheriff called back, and asked that I wait to talk with one of their officers en route. No one else had called to report this.
I indicated 7 witnesses. I believe there were more than likely over several hundred passive witnesses driving both northbound and southbound while this was occurring.
These lights may have been in appearance for far longer than I had estimated. I was driving on the highway and only noticed them when I passed them.
I have never witnessed anything like this before.
