I am currently reading a book that the MUFON WI director recommended. There are lots of first hand sighting reports of ORBS (not ghost ORBS) in the book. These sightings have been rapidly increasing over the past few years. Some things in these reports were right on the money with our experience. The anomalous lights were silent, they were interacting with other planes (military?), there were loud rumbling sounds, there was an AMBER color associated with the lights, our phones reacted abnormally, and one of the lights specifically made a 45 degree turn. It was the real deal. This happened in Blanchardville on the night of the super moon.
My initial report to MUFON-
There was a VERY loud, rumbling plane sound outside. My boyfriend went out onto the deck of the house after our dog reacted to the noise by walking to the sliding glass door and trying to get our attention. Our dog established eye contact with my boyfriend and then looked up into the sky. My boyfriend went out onto the deck and then asked me to join him. I knew it was urgent as he asked me firmly and repeatedly. I went out and saw a plane’s lights heading west to east on the right side of the full moon. The plane was high in altitude and appeared to be a normal plane. We were facing south. The rumbling sound was abnormally loud. The volume and duration of the rumbling sound made me say "this isn't right". For a moment I thought a plane was going to crash. I went in to grab my phone and came back out. I then saw a new flashing light move from west to east toward the high altitude plane. The flash of the new light wasn’t right either. It was like a camera flash or a strobe flash. It flashed a fast bright white, moved, flashed a single flash again, moved, etc. The light moved quickly in the general direction of the plane and then moved below and beyond it towards the east. The light then made a quick, tight u-turn and headed back to the west. It moved across the sky and then moved along the tree line and disappeared. This light moved across a 60 degree section of the sky and back in a few seconds. The way it flashed a bright light when it was closest to us was almost stunning. Very bright and white. When this occurred I said to my boyfriend something along the lines of "Holy Shit, something is going on". The complete movement of the light took it under and to the east of the full moon and then back again.
My boyfriend saw more of these lights when he went out just prior to me. He saw what he said were "way too many lights and planes in one section of the sky." He mentioned seeing one amber light make a 45 degree angle turn. That is when he strongly urged me to get onto the deck. My boyfriend is rather skeptical about most unexplained phenomena and he considers this event to be a sighting of something anomalous. When he first went onto the deck he thought there were planes with regular lights in addition to the anomalous bright lights. He felt the anomalous lights were reacting to something by the way they moved.
I thought I was taking a video after I grabbed my phone, but one wasn’t recorded (I may have hit the wrong button). My boyfriend's phone was dead this morning. He feels that there still should have been some battery charge left in the device.
My boyfriend of 19 years and I are professional artists. We were staying at my mother’s house in rural WI for a couple of nights in order to observe the super moon. We live in Rockford, IL. I have been fascinated with UFO's since childhood. They are common narratives themes in my artwork.
On Facebook today there was information about a MIG-21 being in the Rockford (IL) area last night. (I recently found out the private Rockford based MIG was NOT in the air at any time on November 14th). There were also reports of multiple fighter jets flying over the Rockford area and an unknown FAA plane landing at the airport.
I have been a Coast to Coast AM listener for 18 years, but haven't reported a personal sighting before this event.

MUFON INVESTIGATIONAL REPORT
Investigational Research: Two books:
The Complete Story of the Worldwide Invasion of the Orange Orbs- Terry Ray (author)
The Memphis UFO Incident- February 2015- Lee Spencer
12/5/16- Calls to Lafayette Co. Sherriff and Blanchardville Police Dept.
FINAL REPORT DATE: 12/7/16
FI ID# 20124
SYNOPSIS: On 11/14/16, at 7:00 pm, in Blanchardville, WI (53516) the 2 witnesses saw multiple lights in the sky and heard an unusually loud rumbling sound. They went out on the deck to see what was happening. They could identify an airplane at a higher altitude than the lights. The situation seemed to have affected their dog and cell phone.
The witness sent a video describing the encounter, which was very helpful. I explained
that most anomalous lights and objects in the sky are silent. Therefore, the rumbling sound is not related to the sighting.
OBJECT DESCRIPTION: The shape of the lights was unknown. There were very bright white lights and amber lights. One of the objects flew through the area, turned and flew back over the same area, and then seemed to descend to above the trees. The lights would flash sequentially. The elevation was at 37% and various. The lowest altitude was greater than 500 feet. The distance was unknown.
WITNESS STATEMENTS/INTERVIEWS: A phone interview with both of the witnesses was done.
One of the witnesses reported the way one of the bright lights flashed, when it was closest to her, was almost stunning. The other witness considered the event to be a sighting of something anomalous in the sky. The female witness has been fascinated about UFO’s since childhood. They are a common theme in her artwork. She is a professional artist.
The witness also reports there was an article on Facebook that a privately owned MIG airplane was flying that night. The map of the MIG’s course was from Rockford, Illinois to Monroe WI, which was 18 miles from Blanchardville. (Not verified yet)
WEATHER: The temperature was 51.8 (F) and the humidity was at 67%. The wind is from the west at 10.4 mph and the conditions were clear.
LOCATION: Blanchardville is in Lafayette County which is located in the southwest area of the state. There are several small airports near the location.
EVIDENCE/INVESTIGATION: Calls were made to local authorities were made but no other reports were made. The witness has attached a video that explains the sighting. See attachment to the Case.
WITNESS CREDIBILITY: Both of the witnesses are Professional Artists and were very
helpful and cooperative.
11/7/16 Burlington, WI 3:45 pm 9 white orbs
11/8/16 La Crosse, WI 5:00 pm 4 orange orbs
11/9/16 Kenosha, WI 7:45 pm 4 white orbs
CONCLUSION: Based on the information presented by the witnesses, I conclude that
the sighting would be in the Unknown-Other category. The rumbling sound is not consistent with the anomalous objects we investigate. It should be considered as a separate issue.
VIDEO ON YouTube (only for the investigator to get a better idea of what happened) I thought I was video taping the whole thing during the sighting with me describing it, but nothing recorded.
