|Many erratically moving blinking star-like lights, occaisional bright orange "flares"
Two times in one week, with three separate witnesses have I witnessed these lights over the potato fields south of Plover around 9:00pm. Blinking lights, some brighter than others, appear and disappear. The most I've seen at one time was approximately six. At one point when there the largest number of lights, I could hear what you would pass off as airplane noise, but too loud for no real close airplane to be seen. Several were gathered near each other when the most spectacular display occurred. At three different areas in the southern sky (at the same time), gatherings of orange lights occurred. The gathering I focused on formed into four orange lights in a perfect horizontal line. From my peripheral view I could see other gatherings moving. Then they faded out. They were in view for probably 6-7 seconds. From then on, I watched 2-3 blinking lights move around the whole horizon, ending up back in the southern sky. At one point they stopped blinking but if you focused, you could see the object still there. It would appear like a satellite at that point, except that it changed directions at times. Then it would start blinking again. After about a half hour, they were gone.
