BATTLE CREEK. -- Residents of South Central Michigan reported seeing mysterious flying objects in the sky last night.
One person said he saw an object that looked like a "giant bulb." Others said the objects were "football shaped."
Objects were also reported sighted in the Detroit area.
Volunteer observers of the Civil Air Patrol's "Operation Skywatch" at the Ionia airport reported seeing the objects between 10:15 p.m. and 11 p.m.
This time coincided with reports of sightings at Battle Creek to the south.
