Location: Mosinee, WI
Shape: Other
Duration:five minutes
Organic looking craft hovered silently in place for several minutes then took off towards the horizon at a high rate of speed.

My friend and I were doing some night fishing with his 7-year-old stepson at Bean’s Eddy in Mosinee Wi and had been doing fairly well with catching fish until this… thing showed up. Bean’s Eddy is a heavily wooded area on the Wisconsin River so animal activity is very prevalent but once this thing showed up everything went eerily silent, no bugs, no small animals, and fish activity went completely south, even the coyotes went quiet for hours. It was a clear night, not a cloud in the sky, we could clearly see the planes coming in to land at the nearby Central WI airport, and in fact there were planes in the sky when this thing showed up (though none near it), so we could tell the differences and see size references.

I have seen other things but nothing close enough to say, “Hey, that’s not a plane!” This was different…. First off no noise, there was no sound whatsoever, and considering how close it was and that we could hear the jetliners coming into the airport we should have, if there was any noise made. Second, I could see the shape of this thing, it looked almost organic, eight lighted panels grading in color from dark orange to a bright yellowish white and a body that was silvery black, kind of like a black chrome..

Last and most disturbing was that it just showed up, it didn’t glide in, it was just there, hovering in place for several minutes, then, when it started moving it moved from above us to the horizon line in less than thirty seconds. I drew a picture of it just to get it out of my head…. it looks like nothing I have ever seen.
