Full Description of event/sighting: My grandfather who is 92 and still alive (Mar 2007) in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, told me recently about his childhood UFO sighting.
Funny thing is, as a child I spent an enormous amount of time with his mother, my great-grandmother. (originally from Canada), and she also told me the same story when I was a little girl. I did not understand as a little child that my grandfather had been the son who was with her at the time of the sighting.
One day Gramma and her son, who was a young boy of perhaps 6-10 years, were walking in a neighborhood known as Garden Acres, in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. It was still daylight, afternoon, when they saw a light in the sky. Airplanes did not fly overhead back in those days, so it was very unusual to see moving lights in the sky.
The light moved along horizontally as they watched it, then it suddenly shot upward and quickly disappeared from view.
Great-grandma told her son to never tell anyone what they had seen because people would think they were crazy in the head.
That's the whole story. In all of my 46 years, I have never known my grandfather to lie or exaggerate, nor to tell stories or believe in fantastical things. My great-grandmother, too, was a trustworthy witness not given to fantasy or exaggeration.
Thank you to the family member for relating this very interesting sighting.
