Wisconsin witness photographs two orange orb UFOs

A Wisconsin witness at Madison reported watching and videotaping “two reddish-orange objects” that quickly disappeared, according to testimony in Case 63958 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was driving to a store in Madison at 4:01 p.m. on March 6, 2015, when the incident occurred.

“I noticed two objects in the sky that had a reflective, reddish-orange color,” the witness stated. “I very quickly realized I was seeing something unique and unusual.”

The witness pulled out a cell phone and recorded a 10-second video of the objects.

“It was there in the sky and it was gone from the sky. Thinking this has to be something explainable I reviewed what I recorded. The video is so fast that you have to slow down the video by 50 percent and go frame by frame.”

The witness noticed unusual behavior in the video.

“That is when I saw this object take different shapes and move beyond any speed I’ve ever seen. I would like someone to see the video and the pictures I got after slowing down the video and I saw clearly something unusual. So I zoomed into the video and got some amazing pictures and plus I have it on video.”

  1. I live in madison, does anyone know where in madison this occured? Been watching but haven’t noticed anything.

  2. I grew up in LaCrosse, WI about 2 hours away and have noticed a few reported sightings from that area as well. Wisconsin has been active lately!

  3. A few weeks ago I was driving on back roads between Whitewater and Fort Atkinson when I looked out my driver side window and saw a bright orange orb to the west sky just over the horizon. I thought to myself wow the planet Jupiter or Mars is very bright I’ve never seen it so bright before. Thinking nothing of it I kept driving and few minutes later I took another look. This time there were two bright orange orbs in the sky. I then thought well that’s no planet or star, and that can’t be a plane light because I’ve never seen it that orange before. This got my attention so I decided to stop the vehicle to watch these lights. When I stopped I got a good look at the lights and thought they must be off in the distance pretty far. I noticed they were actually heading my direction right for me. It was only a few seconds later I realized what I was looking at was not that far away. It actually was much closer than I thought. The two objects in my mind were two different objects, but when they moved they moved like birds in a flock, or like one, but never did I see it as one object. At this point the objects made the strangest S turn in the sky. This is when I realized what I was looking at was not far away at all. In fact they were almost right above me. The bottoms were pinkish red leaving a streak of light when making this bizarre S turn. Once they made this move they started heading north bound and went behind a tree. I thought to myself what I saw is not normal so I want to follow this and see where it goes or what it is. Once on the other side of the tree the lights were gone and I searched for hours not realizing I was searching for hours. I don’t remember driving back home, don’t remember how I got back or the route I took. When I got home I realized what should have been a 40 minute trip took me hours with no recollection of how I got there. I wish I never saw what I saw because it has me so confused as to what it was. No noise or sound was heard I had my window down. Never seen objects move like this or look like this. The strangest things is once I realized the objects were close I had this thought that they knew I knew they were there. I thought my headlights are giving me away. That’s when they made that S turn and disappeared. This is one of those moments that you can not explain, and I wish I didn’t have this experience because all the questions I have now are bugging me. I don’t think I was supposed to see this or wish I didn’t. I’d rather not have the experience now that it happened.
