Full Description & Details
It was around 10pm. I was turning into my driveway. I noticed three bright lights over Lake Tomah. I live 5-6 houses away from Tomah Memorial Hospital. I assumed it was Flight For Life landing at the hospital. I parked and walked to the end of my driveway to watch the FFL. Then, I realized the lights were so high up in the sky, it couldn't be the FFL helicopter. I couldn't hear any noise from a helicopter either. I then thought they must be three large stars or planets. This triangle formation was pointing East. Two of the lights, all spaced equal distances apart, started to move around the third light. The triangle formation was now pointing west. I say formation because I couldn't see any structure between the lights, just solid black. I do think they were connected because they moved in unison. Three helicopters from the East started to approach the triangle formation. The three helicopters were so high up in the sky that I could not hear the rotor noise. I knew by their light pattern they were three helicopters flying very close together in a straight line.The triangle formation slowly moved from the East to the West with the three helicopters following it. When the triangle formation flew a little ways to the west, it just vanished, all three lights went out at the same time. The helicopters continued and when the first helicopter was in the same spot where the triangle vanished, the first helicopter vanished. Then the second helicopter hit that spot in the sky and it vanished. The third helicopter quickly did a 180 and zoomed back to the East as fast as it could. I went into the house and sat down in shock, trying to figure out what to do next. I didn't know if I should call Volk Field, Ft. McCoy, or the police. I called the pd. and they just kind of laughed it off.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Yes UFOs are real. I've always believed in them. I saw one when I was a young child, one when I was about 16 and this one, I'm 43 now. I always watch those UFO shows on TV.
