To the Journal editor: At 4:20 p.m. Sunday, I was sitting, visiting a patient with my son Stewart in Room 626 at Marquette General Hospital in Marquette. Stewart was facing a large window covering the outside wall from waist high to ceiling, facing due east. He suddenly exclaimed, "There is a UFO." Sitting next to the window, I suddenly turned, stood up and saw an irregularly shaped (Stewart remarked, "It looks like a kite"), silvery, somewhat rectangular body rapidly descending across Lake Superior from the north at a 15 to 20 degree slope. It appeared to be 1 to 2 miles away when first seen, and in about 15 to 20 seconds, at the low point of its descent, it sped past the due east line from our location (to the right of the hospital smokestack and in line with the northern rim of Grand Island), then started to climb at a 20 to 30 degree slope in a south-southeasterly direction. It rapidly shrank in size as it sped away, and soon vanished in the distance at a high elevation - perhaps several thousand feet towards the top of a distant bank of fuzzily topped clouds. The entire transit time of my observation was perhaps 40 to 50 seconds. The overall appearance was a silvery, almost rectangular object with changing borders, suggesting it was twisting or rolling on its long (forward to rearward) axis, with flashes of reflected sunlight (the sun was behind us) and/or as light beamed from the object (some with a reddish color). Although irregular in outline, there were no specific structures. The distance from us seemed to be about 1 mile as it passed its lowest and nearest point. At its nearest, it covered an area about the size of my index fingernail when held upright at arm's length. I had the feeling it might be 50 to 100 feet in length. Overall, visibility was great. Only a few wisps of high clouds, plus the distant band of fuzzily topped clouds to the south. There was no evidence of any exhaust or discharge from the object other than the lights. The object's progression seemed effortless, like it was sailing or floating along, and unaffected by gravity. I would be interested to know if other parties saw this object or are interested in a few additional particulars of the sighting. John W. English, M.D. Marquette
MARQUETTE -- We've had a report that a mysterious silver flying object was seen over Lake Superior next to Picnic Rocks on Sunday. Two witnesses reported seeing the object, which they described as a small version of stealth bomber, at 4:20 p.m., looking east. The father and son say it flew in a straight path and twisted as it moved, disappearing into the distance about a minute after they spotted it.
To the Journal editor: (This is) in response to Dr. English's sighting of an unidentified flying object: On April 19, at 10 p.m., there was an object spotted hovering over White Bear Road in Negaunee Township. It appeared to be the size of a football field, with blinking lights, just hovering above the treetops. Also, two years ago on Christmas Eve, the same object was spotted in the same area around noon. As a child growing up around Dead River Basin, there have been many sightings of unusual objects in the sky. I have also heard of beings being spotted digging in the soil around a camp late at night. I've had my own experiences that I can't explain. I just keep an open mind and realize anything is possible. Kathy Morrison Marquette
In Marquette, MI., May 06, 2010 approximately 9 PM I went outside into my yard to smoke a cigarette. The evening sky was cloudy. Stars couldn't be seen. I noticed a very bright light through the trees and it could only be seen by standing in the "sweet spot". Initially, I thought it was the moon but quickly realized it was not. I moved around the yard trying to get a better view without success. Moments later the light seemed to burn out. I checked local news for reports as there had been a handful of daytime sightings of a craft days earlier. No comments. May 08, 2010 at approximately 11:15 PM I was outside smoking and looked up into a very clear night sky to see a brilliantly white light moving silently across the sky. I am under commercial airline traffic so was dilligent to see what type of craft could be lit up in such a way. I live approximately a mile away from the Lake Superior shoreline. I watched this very bright, large object move overhead and east toward the lake where it appeared to launch into hyperspace. But really, what I saw was the object get smaller and disappear. What I saw was that this UFO began to ascend at 45 degrees and zoom away out of sight. Yet, the craft got smaller not as a function of it's ascent or distance but more like, I know this sounds crazy, but like it was being vaccuumed or sucked into some unseen tube. This UFO was huge and silent! A couple of seconds afterward a commercial craft flew over and I could hear it perfectly and in comparrison of the lights, ...they were visable but pinhead.

I can see you have simply inserted the word "interesting" in 20 different threads, in order to increase your post count.
I'm not sure that's what you're supposed to do on here.
Do you have any commentary regarding this, or the other 19 threads in which you have copied & pasted the word "interesting"?
