500 REPORT UFO IN WISCONSIN, PROBABLY
MUFON John Schuessler reports that some
300 people called WIFC-FM (95.5) local radio personality Tony
Brueske claiming they had witnessed a mysterious green or blue
light floating over Wausau. WIFC Program Director Danny Wright
has provided MUFON with a CD of calls indicating nearly 500
calls. They all saw a green or blue light moving north really
low in the sky."
"Hi, this is Tina in Antigo,"
one caller said. "I saw it, too at 11:20 PM moving north.
When I first saw it, it was almost white, then it was
bluish-green." No one can explain why 500 people from
Stevens Point to Minocqua, phoned a radio station to report the
light. "I'd say it was probably the International Space
Station (ISS)," said Arnie Nelson, former director of the
planetarium at Wausau West High School. "I didn't see it,
but that's about the timing it would be, and the
brightness." The ISS orbits 250 miles above the Earth, and
its brightness varies with its path and weather conditions.
According to Heavens
Above, the ISS passed over Wausau
moving northeast at about 10:30pm.
