Reported: 5/10/2019 12:23:44 AM 00:23
Posted: 5/14/2019
Location: Madison, WI
Shape: Light
Duration: 20 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Bright light appears on an overcast night, remains stationary for 20 minutes, then vanishes.

An extremely bright white light with a halo extending to both sides appeared high in the southern sky around 1:40AM. No other lights, such as stars or planets, were visible because of cloud cover, so it was the only light in the sky.

It appeared to be stationary and constant (it did not appear to twinkle).

Then around 2:00Am, it vanished. It did not appear to get larger or smaller. It did not go away gradually. One second it was there, then it simply was not there.
