9:41 PM CST on October 10, 2021. Noticed bright star-like circular light shining brightly. Bright enough where I mistook for reflection from my bedroom light. Turned off lights in bedroom, looked out window and circular light did not move. It hovered above tree line to South East of my bedroom window. Too close and too bright to be a star or planet. I observed for about 10 seconds, and then I grabbed my phone, opened the window and snapped two pictures through the screen at 9:43 PM. No noise that I could hear from object. I ran downstairs to go outside to get a better view. By the time I made it downstairs (10-20 seconds)the object was flying South toward Milwaukee. Same height. No erratic motion. Noticed slight blinking before it was out of view.
On the afternoon of 19th April 1978 in the small town of Colfax, Mark Coltrane was on police patrol duty when he decided to pull his vehicle to the side of the road so he could have something to eat. It was as he was doing so, in an area in a town of only a few thousand that was free of people, he noticed how “crackles” like static was sounding from his police radio.
Before he could take in any more details, though, his attention turned to the “metallic-looking disc” that was moving upwards in the afternoon sky, perfectly clear through the windshield of his police car.
He continued to watch, noticing that the strange object, whatever it was, was moving toward him. As it did so, he would reach for his Polaroid that was in the car. Exiting the vehicle he prepared to snap photographs of this seemingly unearthly craft.
He managed to fire off several shots on the Polaroid. This would send the pictures spitting out of the bottom of the device seconds after capturing the image. He would recall that at one stage the craft was so close that he could even make out markings and details on its underside.
Then, the object began to move away and back into the sky eventually disappearing into the distance. Although he wasn’t exactly sure, Coltrane would state that the sighting would last no longer than several minutes. That is, from first noticing the crackling sound to the craft disappearing into the distance.
He knew what he had seen was real. And he had photographs to prove it. Coltrane would, however, remain in his car for several hours contemplating his next move. He would finally set off to the station to file his report.
