Strange Lights In Sky Seen

Strange lights have been sighted in the sky in both the Ashland and Ironwood areas, according to reports from both the Ashland and Ironwood Police Departments.

Ironwood police officer officers reported aerial sights at 11:45 p.m. (EST) Tuesday and again at 2:45 a.m. (EST) Wednesday.

A report at the Ashland department noted moving lights in the sky at 1:45 a.m. Wednesday approximately the same time the Ironwood department reported the objects. The report said at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, an Ashland officer saw double and single lights in the Northeast. The officers said the lights appeared to change positions about six times and then went out.

Chief of Police Donald Tolliver said similar objects have been sighted regularly by his men since January. One officer said that the lights are usually in the north or northeast and often in formation and the speed was "fantastic."

The lights assumed a recognizable shape for Veikko Jarvi, a Saxon area dam keeper. He saw them around the second sighting at 2:47 a.m. He said they were half moon size, like a disk with windows.
