A Wisconsin witness leaving a church program 25 miles southwest of Oshkosh reports watching a “metallic, elongated” shaped object move overhead at 8:09 p.m. on July 26, 2011, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witnesses’ daughter first saw the object.

“My 9-year-old daughter spotted a bright object in the sky over the building, to our west,” the witness stated. “We watched it for a minute as we walked to our car. The kids got into the car and I stood watching this object advance towards us, going due east, at a steady speed. The object came into view as a metallic, elongated shape, like a stick or a cigar or a rectangle. It was slender. It continued coming directly over us.”
The witness also reports seeing wings on the object half way through the sighting – “two wings out either side, like a double-wing or bi-plane aircraft.”
The object appeared to be larger than other double wing aircraft the witness had seen before.
“But this was bigger than any double-wing aircraft I had ever seen, and higher in sky than they would normally fly. This was confirmed by my 7-year-old son who also saw the craft. I asked him to draw what he saw and he showed a cross-type object, and then said, ‘But there was another part on top of it that I didn’t know how to draw, like another wing.’ I thought, Aha! Yes, he saw that too.”
The witnesses’ two daughters also described the object.
“The 9-year-old saw it as a whitish-yellowish rectangular-type object, or rather two ends to the object, with a space in the center. One object held together by something in the center. My 16-year-old saw a rectangular object, two objects flying front to back, with a space in the center where the wings would be if it were an aircraft (only she didn’t see wings), and she said both sections were lit up like incandescent lights (yellowish). My 7-year-old son and I both saw this cross-type object, rectangular, with the two pieces, but we could see faint ‘wings’ on it, like a bi-wing plane. It would be a safe guess to say the object was segmented.”
The witness thought that perhaps the object was associated with the Experimental Aircraft Association fly-in at Oshkosh upcoming this week, approximately 25 miles northeast of their location.
No images or videos were included with the MUFON report, which was filed on July 26, 2011.
