Shape: Light
Duration:2+ hours
Bright lights in the sky witnessed from highway

The first one looked like a star at first, then it moved so we thought it was a plane, then it stopped, and started changing color from red to white to blue. it stayed relatively still for awhile, then zigzagged, then stopped again. Hung hovering in sky for about an hour and a half, brightening and dimming. I saw a plane fly directly past it. Then the driver of the car I was in spotted another one on the other side of the sky brighter than the first. This one was going from red to blue to yellow, and brightening and dimming, it was so low in the horizon that we lost it behind some trees for awhile, but it was definately moving. Then we drove into La Crosse which was covered in a fog and we did not see them again

((NUFORC Note: Except for the reported movement of the objects, the description is consistent with "twinkling" stars. Movement is very difficult to establish by a witness who is in a moving vehicle. However, we were not there to witness the objects.))
