Daylight Disk Sighting
Date: June 15, 1947
Location: Madison, WI
Three disks appear in the west, stop at zenith, and proceed eastward a rapid rate of speed.
While observing the evening sky while fishing on Lake Wisconsin my eye caught a flashing in the clouds toward the west where the sun was setting. Three gold colored disks appeared out of the clouds and slowed to a stop when reaching zenith. They appeared to be looking down at a beautiful scene below of a broad river set in a valley.
My grandfather, a friend and myself could detect a slight motion as they stood in rather tight triangular formation above us, kind of wobbling. After some 5 to 10 seconds the lead ship slowing began moving Southeast towards Madison and the others brought up the triangular formation. I would estimate their elevation at about 3500' and they looked about the size of a penny at arms length.
They soon accelerated at a tremendous rate and were out of sight on the horizon within 3 to 4 seconds. It was a daylight sighting I will never forget.
