DEXTER, Mich. (AP) — One man played a violin and another used a “universal

undercarriages. They are said to bear lights which flash in a variety of
colors and intensities.
Meanwhile, U.S. representative Weston Vivian of Michigan, planned to ask the
U.S. defence department to investigate the reported sightings and
Wright-Patterson air force base said its unidentified flying objects office
had begun an investigation.
