Iron Mountain, MI

Sighted on Sunday 28. December 2008
Reported on
Shape: Light | Duration: 30 seconds

Four unexplained lights seen near highway in the Upper Peninsula of MichiganI was returning to my home town of Ishpeming, Michigan with my wife and her sister. We were returning from a medical checkup I had in Madison, Wisconsin. The night sky was clear. It was about 1 AM. It was the end of December 2008. Leaving Iron Mountain, Michigan we turned north on M-95. We went only a few miles when I noticed 4 white lights off to the right and barely above the pine trees. (I was in the passenger front seat. My wife was sleeping in the back seat. And her sister was driving.) I told my wife’s sister to look. We both watched the lights. They each looked about the size of a silver dollar. The lights were not overly bright and looked an inch apart. Then suddenly the 4 lights changed to 2 lights that appeared to be the shape of crescent moons about 9-12 inches apart. Again they were not overly bright. We were traveling north. The lights appeared to be moving south south-west. At first we thought it might have something to do with possible towers in the area. We have never these lights before. We have traveled this route countless times before. I have since been along the same highway four times during the day and night. Any towers we saw had red lights. Nothing like what we had seen that night.
