I have never told anyone about this outside my family and close friends. I apologize if this report is too old. It happened in the summer of 1995 when I was 11 years old. It’s been awhile, but I can remember every detail vividly and for the past 23 years, every time I go outside at night this moment crosses my mind.

One night in the early summer of 1995 my parents, niece and I were driving home around 10-11pm from night fishing on the Fox River in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. My mother, niece and I were in a separate car from my dad who did not see the UFO. We were driving South on Ohio St (Oshkosh, WI) right after passing the intersection of Ohio St. and 18th St.. My Mom and I both noticed at the same time a dark triangular object above and to our left out the front window of the car. It was moving at this time East to West and was crossing the street above us just above the tree tops.

The craft was a perfect triangle, maybe 2-3 times the size of our car (90’s Buick Lasabre), or about the width of the two lane street. It was black or very dark gray with steady white lights on each corner of the triangle. It also had an inner triangle centered on the craft that was darker than the rest of the craft. Our windows were rolled down and the craft was completely silent.

When the object passed over the street it turned south (now on the west side of Ohio St.) and flew parallel to our car for approximately 1/3 of a city block going slightly faster than us. We were traveling at this time only approximately 15 mph. If I had to guess I would say the craft was traveling 25-30mph.

The object was getting ahead of us, still on the west side of the street. It went behind some trees and we lost sight of it. We sped up and when we got to the clearing around the intersection of 19th St. and Ohio St. the object was gone.

We lived very close to the sighting location. When we got home we all sat down and drew pictures of what we saw. My niece, who was only 6 or 7 was very upset and crying but was able to draw the exact thing my mom and I did.

About a half hour after the sighting we could hear loud military jets flying around very high up. We all went outside and watched for awhile as the jets circled the entire night sky.

It was an absolute incredible experience that has been ingrained in my mind since childhood, and to this day I cannot go outside at night without looking up at the sky.

** I will email a computer drawing I made off of my memory and the original drawing I made in 1995. I will also include a map of the UFO’s path. The title of the email will be 1995 Oshkosh WI UFO. Thank you.
