Duration:15 minutes
Fifteen minute sighting of unusual light formation north of Madison..

Light formation witnessed for a period of fifteen minutes north of Madison. This formation appeared to be approx the width of a football field. It looked like 30-40 spotlights pointed straight upward toward the sky.

The lights were green with a bit of orange- but mostly green. I could not see a source of the lights, and they were over an area of farm fields.

There were no tractors in the fields and there are also no homes or buildings in this area.

The light formation did move slightly to the west at the ten minute mark. I counted approx 20 Air Force jets circling in the sky during the event. This is highly unusual, as I normally see no more than a handful at a time in the skies around my home. At the fifteen minute point the lights completely disappeared.
