UFO Report: In the fall, may have bern july or august 1994,,, I was on the south east side of Enterprise lake near Elcho Wisconsin. Mid morning about 10am the light is just at the angle it is breaking through the thick trees, thus living there you tend to sleep in if you have no reason to get up early, as I had this day. I got up and still somewhat sleepily, as I wandered outside to greet the morning and walk down to the pier. I walked out to the near the end of the pier, 3/4th of the way, I recall a nearly or cloudless blue sky and perfectly sunny late summer/early fall day ( I really wish that I could go through hypnotic regression to verify the exact date ).
I’d gotten up and gone out to look at the lake, going out on the pier, it being a fairly calm day the lake was peaceful. I happened to glance back toward the shoreline, in a split second, I noticed a tree’s shadow on the lake bottom, at the waters edge, had gotten larger, odd, it was not a very windy day, and remained, instead of moving like a cloud would. I looked up at the tree on the property’s edge, and right by the shore. A tree, that some years before my family bought this property had been struck by lightning, blowing the top – probably 20-30′ off the tree splintering it into pieces at the very top, it otherwise would be the tallest by far.
As if it was hung there, by wire, just above the tree “top stump”, hung a craft very closely resembling a stealth fighter (the smaller one, not the big bomber), black painted, just hanging there silently, without moving, I could very clearly see the pilot, wearing his helmet, visor, air breathing equipment, etc. staring right at me, looking me in the eyes. This may sound strange but, it was like at that moment, for an instant, we could read each others thoughts…. Mentally, I guess is the best word, I could feel his reaction was like “Oops, you are mot supposed to be there”, and mine, “what the…you’re not supposed to be there”. It was an odd moment… I felt like the craft had somehow gotten out of position, like it had flown up to the lake to see if anyone was on the lake fishing (there was not), to see if he could shortcut across the lake without being seen. I know, that does not make much sense but, that was my “feeling”, and thats the only way I can describe it… I know he was human, well humanoid, I could not see eyes through the visor, whether it was an alien hybrid flying the thing with telepathic ability, or a human, and just, ‘one of those things’, I can’t tell but, that was my thoughts, and they are as clear today, as they were at that moment, its burnt into my brain.
The craft’s pilot and I, locked vision, for that brief moment but, too brief, as I was staring into the sun coming up behind the trees, and it was too bright, to continue staring, so, I broke the gaze blinded, looking at the pier at my feet instead, to regain my vision. Knowing I could not look into the sun like that, I took several steps over to the foot of the pier, and three more steps past a far shorter tree there, and around it where I could look up and see while still, in the shade. I did not initially see it, by this time the craft, apparently moving as I did, had floated slightly out over the lake, just beyond the shoreline, as I looked for it, I only found it by following two more duplicate craft that floated up silently from behind the house roofline above the trees and right over me, coming up behind the first, one taking the left wing position and slightly behind, the other the right wing position and slightly behind, forming a triangular formation ( I could also clearly see the painted American Flag on the rear of these craft with various identification letters & numbers and the white painted air force star with a circle. As I continued to watch, the formation still gently floating perhaps a few feet a second, continued floating out over the lake slowly, then I saw what they were waiting for as two more craft came up over me but further to each side away, falling in place to make a flight of 5 in perfect triangle. These guys were experts, clearly, flying so close, and the first three accelerating to match the faster two coming up behind. Just as these last two joined the formation, they all began to accelerate, already a quarter the way across the lake and quickly approaching halfway, in just seconds (perhaps one, to one and one half, minute, had elapsed from the time I had seen the first one, hanging there….). I decided, that they would be gone fast, as they were accelerating quickly, and completely silent, with no wind, nothing to indicate motion except movement. In that split second I made the decision to go get the binoculars my family kept by the front window to look out over the lake. Crossing the 15 strides or so around back if the cabin to the porch entry door, inside and up the three steps into the interior, two strides and I grabbed the binoculars. Looking it took a moment to find them because they were already far beyond the lake’s western shore some 3 miles away, and going west fast. I could see them in her binoculars (fairly good powerful ones) as five tiny craft quickly becoming five dots, then they just faded beyond my vision range, even with binoculars. They were gone, silently, quickly, and just gone, all about two and a half minutes since I had seen the first one hanging there less than 100′ from me, above the lightning shattered tree.
