I am 47 yrs old now but was about 16 when this took place.I was walking Goat island resort back to our lake house[south to north] and noticed a bright glowing orange ball moving up over the tree line across the lake NNE in the wildlife refuge area.It hovered 200-300 ft about 2 min. then went down slowly behind the tree line.The distance was less than a half a mile[aprox 2000 ft]from where i was standing.At that time[1979]that area was closed to the public but is now open for hiking.This was really weired but at that age I just did not care that much about it but now i am amazed how many people are reporting the same type of things over years.I have told only a few people about this event but I was with a friend when this happen,but it is kinda cool to at least vent this to someone who cares.Thanks for listening!
