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 they saw what is believed to be 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 two miles south of the bluff. The lights
were much like the lights you would see on an aircraft of that time but
there was no sound and it 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 an Unidentified Flying Object in the Belleville
area but it was certainly not the last.
On March 6th, 1987 several citizens of Belleville described cigar-shaped
objects in the late afternoon sky. The objects were reported to have a
pop can shape 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
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. Their existence
went up in smoke, when Harvey Funseth's pictures did not show what the
two men saw that night. 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.
