My son stepped outside at around 10:00 pm. He came inside and told me and my wife to look outside. To the East of Fort Atkinson we could see orange flashing lights in the sky. At times blue and red beams seemed to shoot through the trees. It looked as if kids were playing with laser pointers in the distance. We wanted to get a closer look at the lights so my son and I drove to Purdy School parking lot. The street lights in the area were flickering when we saw the light in the sky. We then followed the light east to Hommersons pond where we sat and watched for about 5 min. Orange flashing lights seemed to be behind the tree line so we drove again to get a better look. We drove about 5 - 8 miles down 106 east and pulled over to the side of the road. We now had a great view of a large orange ball of light behind a cloud. It was a clear sky but the strange lights always had a cloud around them. When it lit up, the whole horizon was orange. We saw a large white light that looked like it was getting closer to us in the sky. We both now were scared and turned around to go home. I found myself almost unable to stop looking in my rear & side mirrors. When we passed Purdy School on the way home we noticed that the street lights where back to normal. When my son and I got back home we told my wife what we had seen. I heard about MUFON and decided I should report what we saw.
