This observation was the weekend following 4th of July. While camping at the park, my 3 children, their spouses/friend, and my grandchild went down to Lake Michigan to play flashlight tag. About 10:30, my girlfriend and I went down to check on the kids and see the lake. After a few minutes they decided to head back to the campsite to make s���mores. My girlfriend and I stayed to watch the fireworks from St. Joseph. While standing on the landing of the stairs to the beach. A ���Cigar Shaped��� thing appeared right in front of us. It was between the Lake and the sand dune. It was close enough to see bands around it. The bands were 8-10��� wide with something like rivets. This thing was about 40 ft long and 15ft tall. It made no noise. It seemed to be coming from the water. I observed it for 20-30 seconds. It disappeared as quickly as it appeared.
I stood there for a few seconds trying to get my head around what I���d seen. I asked my girl friend. Did you just see something? Or am I crazy? She said I just saw a ���Hot Dog shaped��� thing. We talked among ourselves it was like it was headed toward the Indian Burial grounds. We never told the kids, did not want to scare my granddaughter.
