Location: Eagle, WI
|at approx. 20:25 pm tonight while traveling east on state hyw. 59 from Palmyra to eagle, WI. with my family wherew hyw Z intersects hyw 59 I looked to the north east and saw an extremely bright light in the sky ( this would have been located approx 2 miles north of eagle, Wi. at the time I brought it to the attention of my wife and kids. we all watched this light and my wife joked that it was a ufo. It was much larger in size than any airplane lights would be looked to be about 1/4 mile above the ground and extremely bright like a large star or planet reflecting - but it was obvious that it was in our atmosphere not far away.
As we watched it while driving down the highway it appeared to be stationary and solidly bright( extremely bright white ) . Suddenly it dissappeared as if a switch was shut off - it did not fly off it just shut off the light so to speak both my oldest son and I witnessed it dissapeared as my wife did not happen to be looking at it at that very moment but was supprised to see it gone so quickly. As we scanned the sky for it we saw a plane flying in it's general direction and were able to see just how much larger than a planes lights it actually was.
Has anyone else reported this sighting? please let me know.
Sincerely, ((name deleted))
