Appearance / Description of Object(s)
The 16 "saucers" were round and silver in color. The time was about 8:30 am with a clear, blue sky.
Size of Object(s)
Since they were so high in the sky, but also so visible, I would guess that if they were on the earth they would have been as large as a steamship.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
Hard to say, but, judging by my knowledge of aircraft, at least 30,000 to 50,000 feet in the air.
Description of Area / Surroundings
In the northwest area of the City of Milwaukee. I was a school crossing guard regulating kids going to school in teh morning a block away from my corner.
Full Description & Details
The 16 silver disks were very high up in teh sky appearing almost tiny. They were flying east to west in an unwavering patern equally spaced apart and traveling very fast. All of a sudden they stoped stock still in the sky and then darted as a unit diagonally back and downward. They stopped again, and then proceeded to fly straight upward. They stopped again and then flew back directly east to west. They stopped one more time, and then instantly flew straight up and out of sight within seconds!
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
There is no way it was anything man-made or natural. The Cop was in awe, probably more so than us kids as we just accepted such a phenomenon, whereas the adults were in shock. I said, "Did you see what I think I saw?" And the Cop said, "Yes!"
Navy Reserve Commander with 42 years of military service before retiring 4 years ago at age 60. Also, in civilian life, a business executive. I should also add that in 1964, while serving in the Milwaukee Air Force Reserve's Intelligence Department as an Airman 1st Class, I used to field calls from civilians calling to report UFO sightings. These people were very agitated, but since we didn't have any method for following up, I would just tell them the little white lie that we were launching weather balloons to clam them down.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I was only 12, so had no previous knowledge/awareness of UFOs other than in comic books. The experience made me a believer! So, that when I saw another one 45 years later I wasn't as shocked. (see next report)
About 6 or 8 years ago (1999) I was driving home in teh suburban community of Greendale, Wisconsin, which lies oh the Milwaukee airport's glide path, when I saw a huge cigar-shaped object hovering just about tree-top height, It was covered in multi-colored lights. At first I assumed it was an aircraft heading for the airport, but no, because it was standing stock still. I pulled to the side of the raod and just stared at it assuming it would soon fly away. I sat there in my car for a good 5 minutes when a car coming from the opposite direction on Southway Street also stopped and stared. I called to the lady and asked if she was seeing the UFO, too. She said, "YES!" I waited so long, I finally decided to drive the 2 b;ocks home and get my camera. But, by the time I retirned it was gone,a nd so was the lady in the other car.
Reported To:Just to the policeman who was there with me.
