Sighting Reports 2008

Man Sees Object That Changed From Cigar to Circular Shape

Date of Sighting: August 31, 2008
Time of Sighting: 10:30 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Wausau, Wisconsin (North Central Wisconsin)

Description: The witness called and reported his sighting several months after it occurred. He said that he wasn't sure where to report the sighting. He was out for an evening walk and saw a light that he first thought was a "shooting star." However, when the light shot straight up in the sky he knew it was not a shooting star. The light then descended and moved much closer to him. The light the shape of a large cigar shaped cylinder and was "bright white." The cylinder then began rotating "side to side." The object was the size of a dollar bill held at arm's length. The object then changed to a circular shape. It then shot straight up and disappeared.

Comments: The witness sounded very credible in his reporting and I don't doubt his description of the experience. I can think of no known natural phenomenon that would fit this sighting.
