APPLETON COUNTY: CALUMET -- John B. reports, "We saw three flashing lights on August 30, 2001, at 8:30 PM that were lined up in a row.  They were flashing in sequence.  Two flashes, pause, three flashes, pause, four flashes, pause, and then repeated.  The front light was amber and the others were white.  At first, it looked like they were all connected.  Using binoculars, it looked like only the front light was attached to the next segment and the other segments were separate.  The object was cigar shaped and had some sort of windows in it.  Suddenly, the rear lights split apart and flew in different directions.  Then, as it got further away, it "realigned" into one cigar shaped craft that was headed toward Outagamie County Airport.  My wife called the airport and the tower had not seen anything as I described, on radar.  I also saw them on August 27th, when we saw only two similar lights. 

SHEBOYGAN -- Steve Oplatek on August 29, 2001, decided to step outside his house to smoke at 8:40 PM.  I noticed six large aircraft flying west with strobe lights at a fair rate of speed.  I heard jet engine noises and noticed that slightly ahead of the aircraft were another set of moving lights.  The second set consisted of two lights that were orange in color and steady; they did not blink like a strobe.  After further observation, it appeared to me as if the aircraft were pursuing the orange lights.  I got this impression because the aircraft were maneuvering a lot compared to the orange lights.  After 2 to 3 minutes the orange lights started to separate, one took a slight turn to the North, while the other one continued west.  The aircraft then split up into two elements consisting of hree planes each.  It looked like the aircraft were trying to surround the orange lights, perhaps in a dog fight.  This sighting lasted about five minutes.  Six aircraft in such close proximity to Sheboygan is unusual!
