Massive craft seen in the Devil's Lake National Park, Baraboo, Wisconsin.

Object seen during a night drive to Devils Lake (south Shore). Object looked to be 200, or so, feet from each end.

I first thought it was a flare, due to its red color.

But as I got to the bottom of the Devil's Tail, there were two more lights. From the clear night sky, it became clear to me this was not flares I was seeing.

The object was silent. No sound at all it was judging from the highest point of the bluffs just over 300 feet above elaphant rock. As i had been hiking this area the morning before. I parked in the middle of the road. I got out of my car and checked to see if maybe campers on the other side where out seeing the object as well. But i couldn't see any lights or hear anyone from the north side.

I watched as the craft slowly moved from where I first saw it. To the railway tracks not far from where I was parked. The red lights which marked the ends of the craft dimmed. The craft decedent to just above the trees still there was no sound of any kind. From bottom middle of the craft. A brief bright blue light shot through the pines. The light was bright enough to hurt my eyes. It did this in bursts of five. From my view point it seemed like it was scanning the ground. I was terrified by this point. Thus got back in my car. Quietly i will add.

I counted as many as fifteen rounds this object shot into the forest floor. I pulled out my old flip phone and tried to get a picture of the object. I only was able to get one when the phone Wich was fully charged died suddenly no reason. ... The object came to a full stop at just beyond my full line of sight. The craft stopped firing the (beams if you will) The end red lights brighten once again.

I put the car in nutral to coast down to see what it was or had done to the forest floor. I slammed it in park when I seen it rise from the tree line. I tried to restart my phone with no response it was still dead. I then heard a sound I will never forget as long as I live. .. it was the sound of rock being ripped out of the ground. From under the forest. But I couldn't see anything being lifted up skyward. The trees were still. nothing moved. The craft slowly rose up from the forest. Past the bluffs. And beyond the thousand foot range. I watched it continue skyward. Then it emitted a bluish swell in front of it. The craft shot forward through the swell the swell opened then vanished with a bright flash.

I wish to state i never reported this to any law enforcement agencies nor did I mention this to the local park rangers stationed in the park. ... i did return home and tell my family of my encounter. They told me then to keep it quiet and that it was nothing. ... The fact is I had seen something beyond my understanding that night. .. something i am now some years later able to share with the world. My hope is that I wasn't the only one who witnessed the craft maybe someone else will too come forward from the camp sites and share their own encounter with you as well. ...

As for me? I believe. .. I've spent the last 13 or so years looking into the rocks and minerals that could possibly be of interest in the area. ... there's no gold or silver in the area of the event quartzite and the basic granite is all that's in the devil's lake. .... to this day. ... im stumped. ..
