Belleville, Wisconsin to hold UFO Days Oct. 30thIt all started January 16th, 1987 when police officer Glen Kazmar reported seeing a cluster of lights in the sky. Now the town claims to be the UFO capital of the world and is holding a UFO festival to prove it.
It all started January 16th 1987 when police officer Glen Kazmar reported seeing a cluster of lights in the sky. After seeing the lights he met Jeff Furseth, his partner at that time and they drove to a bluff southwest of town. This is where the saw what is they believe is a U.F.O. The two men didn’t know what to think when they saw the flashing red, blue and white lights arranged horizontally suspended about 1000 feet in the air approximately 2 miles south of the bluff. The lights were much like the lights you would see on aircraft of that time but there was no sound and they remained suspended in the air for a extended period of time. Not long after the officers arrived A Sheriff’s Deputy from Green County arrived on the scene. Eventually these lights moved to the southwest accelerating faster and faster until they were quickly out of site. This was the first report of Unidentified Flying Objects in the Belleville area but it was certainly not the last. On March 6th Several citizens of Belleville described cigar-shaped objects in the late afternoon sky. The objects were reported to have pop can shaped or tank-like objects close by or directly underneath. According to the reports, some of the objects departed in, or were obscured by a cloud of vapor. There were more than a dozen reports of U.F.O. activity from Belleville and New Glarus residents from January to April. These reports prompted an investigation by a Chicago-based Center for U.F.O. Studies. Donald Schmitt, a Milwaukee Investigator ruled out any possibility of manmade or natural known objects and believed the Belleville reports were legitimate U.F.O. sightings. Even with Schmitt’s report there is still no concrete evidence proving U.F.O.’s exist in Belleville and the one chance at proving them went out in smoke as Harvey Funseth’s film did not come out. We will never know exactly what the residents saw over those few months in 1987, the objects were unidentifiable making Belleville the U.F.O. Capitol of the World.
