It went right alongside the highway all the way from
Highway 48 down to the Bible Camp. Then it crossed over the highway in front of us
and lowered  down toward the field and hovered there about 50 or a hundred feet
above the ground.

Ted Wistrom is crystal clear about what he and Heather Berrard saw as they were
traveling south on Highway 87 from Grantsburg at about 5 p.m. last Wednesday. They
vow the aircraft, no more than 20 feet wide or long, was moving down the west side
of the road at about 30 miles an hour.

The craft was not nearly large enough to carry people, says Wistrom, but he also says it
was dark, so exact size was hard to tell.

Checks with officials in law enforcement and the Department of Natural

Resources uncovered nothing to explain what the couple saw.

Wistrom says he knows they weren't the only ones to see it. He says the car in front of them slowed down, too, as did two others behind them. Wistrom said he had planned to turn east on
Highway O, but continued south on 87 to continue watching the aircraft.

It made no sound

He says it wasn't very high in the air. He could see what looked like propulsion units, sort of like tubes, protruding out of the bottom of the craft that were tililted toward the ground, like that was  
what was holding it up.

There were four rectangular lights on what appeared to be the back of the craft, he said. They spanned the entire rear, with the lights immediately adjacent to each other, with each one being
maybe two or two and a half feet high.

While the craft was moving, the lights were all orange. When it began to hover over a field near the Bible camp, he said the center left light turned blue and the center right one turned white.
The white light began to blink as it was hovering, he says, and then the craft disappeared.

Wistrom says he cannot  give an overall description of the craft, because they only saw the underside and rear.

˜Just kooky stuff

Wistrom says friends had been telling him of seeing strange air vehicles over the last couple of months, and claim they have seen military-type vehicles at Crex Meadows before the snow came.
He laughed off their remarks as just kooky stuff,

Now, he says, he thinks they are doing some kind of testing around here.

DNR employees at Crex Meadows say there have not  been any unusual vehicles there.

After the strange vehicle disappeared, Wistrom says he and Berrard headed east when a low-flying airplane flew by at low level. That plane, he said, had a blue-and-white light underneath and
red lights on the wingtips, but nothing like the much larger rectangular lights on the strange air vehicle.

“There are rare persons in this world who see things others
don’t; persons who connect the dots of existence and
possess an instinctive talent for linking with kindred souls to
reveal otherwise invisible patterns and excavate hidden
truths. Such a person is Mary Sutherland. She is a natural-
born networker in all she does --- from her Burlington
Vortex Conferences and Sci’Fi Café to her public talks and
published books. Nowhere, however, is her gift for
perception more developed than in her latest title.“  Frank
Joseph .
Joseph was nominated by Japan's Savant Society as
Professor of World Archaeology. He was editor-in-chief of
Ancient American Magazine from 1993 to 2007 and has
traveled the world collecting research materials for his
twenty-seven published books.
"Mary Sutherland is not simply a reporter of all these phenomena;
she lives them! As readers expect, her studies extend beyond her
own experiences. The author and investigator often takes visitors
on tours containing an inter-dimensional vortex and hosts yearly
conferences and meet ups with many well known speakers on
anomalous phenomena."
What differentiates her book. Haunted Burlington Wisconsin , is that
Sutherland includes her explanations of the unknown realms and
phenomena with tips for heightening the reader's own psychic
awareness. Readers who complete this dizzying journey may find
they can no longer look at Burlington in exactly the same way.
Perhaps, then, this book itself may be considered a vortex. and
whether or not it actually transports you to another place, it will
certainly draw you in."
