Sight UFO near Half Moon Lake
Richard Breault, a town of Apple River farmer, said he hasn't slept well for nearly two weeks.
On Thursday, Oct. 25, he and his wife had an encounter with an unidentified flying object (UFO) about 6:30 a.m. while driving on CTH G near Half Moon Lake.
"We were on our way to our deer camp," said Breault. "We left our house about 6:15 a.m." About a 1 1/2 miles from the Half Moon store, the couple's attention was directed to a bright, shining light in the sky.
"My wife thought it was a bright star and I said it looked more like a weather balloon," Breault observed.
Suddenly, the bright light descended on the Breault's "just past the Half Moon store."
"My wife thought we were going to smash into it and screamed at me to hit the brakes," observed Breault.
The UFO came at the car about 80 feet above the ground and then came straight down until it hovered about 20 feet above the road. He described the UFO as about 40 feet in length with a hump in the middle. One end of the craft was square with the other end sloped.
"I've never seen such speed in all my life," he said.
It was out of sight in about six seconds, Breault estimated.
About three-fourths of the UFO was reddish in color. He described the top quarter as a combination of red, green, yellow and orange.
The craft then shot across Half Moon Lake at 4,000 or 5,000 miles an hour, according to Breault.
While there was no damage to the pickup truck, Breault said both he and his wife experienced a good case of the jitters including "butterflies in the stomach and we couldn't swallow."
The couple didn't tell anyone about the incident, except their children, "because you know what people think when something like this happens."
Sitting next to Breault on the pickup seat were a loaded camera and binoculars.
"It all happened so fast, I didn't think to use them," he observed.
No other sightings were reported to the Polk county sheriff's department.
This is the second sighting of a UFO in Polk County this year. Earlier, several persons reported seeing a UFO near East Lake located east of Dresser.
