Duration:5-8 seconds
Close triangle shaped lights and 5 fighter jets in central Wisconsin.

My husband and I were driving westbound on highway 54 towards the village of Dexterville (central Wisconsin) in the cranberry bogs. It was dark (10:08 pm), when suddenly, just to the left, we saw a very bright set of multiple lights ahead of us. They had suddenly appeared out of nowhere and were very large, guessing approximately 6 blocks above. The lights were shaped in a curved like boomerang or curved triangle shape. We could not see an object because of the darkness, but these lights very clearly were outlining something. The lights seemed to glide slowly to the right, as if the object was moving very slowly. The distance was much, much lower than an airplane would fly, yet, still off the ground some distance. The lights were white, but my afterthought recollection remembers some hue of orange. The lights appeared to suddenly begin to fade away as the group of lights in unison, tilted to the right, and amazingly, it was gone as fast as it appeared, it seemed to simply fade away.

We kept looking, thinking that it had to still be there, but could not see a thing. After it disappeared, we realized there were several star-like lights, much smaller, moving very quickly, higher up in the sky in a tight circular pattern. Very shortly, we came to a train crossing by a small dirt road on our left & pulled off the road and got out of our vehicle. We heard multiple jet noises and realized that these 5 star-like objects which were moving very fast, were fighter jets, as we watched them for several minutes. They kept circling above, just to the left, where we saw the object, at a much lower altitude. My husband and I both agree that we have never seen anything like this before. The whole experience as short as it was, is very incredible. I called the Wood Co. sherrifs department when we got home about 30 minutes later, to tell them about the episode. They said they had not received any other reports. I am interested to see if anyone else experienced what my husband and I saw. Wow!
