Posted: 3/4/2003
Location: Sturgeon Bay, WI
Shape: Light
Duration: so far 25 min.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object changed color
Two bright lights over Lake Michigan, one full of colors, the other still light, same distance above water.

Two bright lights were over Lake Michigan, so close to the shore at first I thought it was a helicopter or plane coming in, but they just hovered and didn't move position. The one on the right was as bright as a planet like Venus only twinkled with blue, red, green, and yellow and in looking through the spotting scope which isn't very strong, looked bow shaped. The one on the left, maybe a mile - 2 (hard to tell distance over water and above) from the other one was at the exact same distance above the water, but did not twinkle at all, just a very bright yellow light. I noticed them at 6:30 P.M. They are still there at 7:00 P.M.

((NUFORC Note: The witness appears to provide a very precise description of what the star, Sirius, and the planet, Venus, look like in the eastern sky during the early evening hours. PD))
