Location: Portage Dunning Rs. (About 15-20 miles outside of), WI
Shape: Light
Duration: 30 - 45 mins
Characteristics: The object changed color
Ball of light made no noise what so ever!

I was rather young at the time so I don't remember too many details, However I do remember it being about 10:15 or so at night I had just got done watching the wather report saying about how clear it was outside and I rather liked star gazing as I was out in the country at my sisters place she had just moved into. As I was out side seeing how many of teh star shapes I could make out the big dipper, ect. I had looked to my right at a rather large hill that the road that runs in front of the apartment house. A ball of light came over the hill i'm guessing was about 50 to 70 feet in the air moving very slowly. I watched it for a few mins an noticed that none of the "sounds" you would hear in the country had stopped and there was absolutly no noise from the object. I had ran into the house to get my sister and her then husband and we all watched it seem to slow down even more for a breef moment, then continued its path from the south to the north (more or less) As we had no phone in the house at the moment there was no way of contacting anyone else to what we saw. We were watching it move out of site for about 45 mins untill we could not see it any longer, I was quite supprized the distance we were able to see the light flashing from so far away as it was. (not sure if this is important or not but, The very next day, I had seen a red bi-plane following a sillilar course as the ball of light I had seen the night before but I could hear that from inside the house, the object had made no nose and was about 100 to 150 feet away as it passed us as we watched it.
