ORB-LIKE UFOs have been spotted “flying in formation” over the US countryside miles apart – reportedly sparking a police probe.
Footage showed mysterious bright white lights darting across night skies over farmland in rural Wisconsin.

The spooky spectacle baffled locals, with witnesses dismissing the idea the UFO was a searchlight.
According to former FBI agent Ben Hansen, local cops have been probing the case after residents asked for help.
At least two witnesses filmed the strange lights at the same time from different locations, Daily Mail reports.
Kimberly, 52, said she was driving home with her husband around 10.45pm on December 1 in West Bend when she noticed the white glow in the sky.
She said “all of a sudden we saw what looked to be a white owl swoop from the upper right-hand top of the trees, down in front of the headlights, and up to the left”.
Kimberly decided it wasn’t an owl after the object swooped in front of them another three times – but they were left puzzled.
The couple then saw white lights above them.
“And as we’re both leaning forward into the windshield, we start seeing these lights, similar to what I caught in the video,” she said.
“We just couldn’t wrap our heads around what we were seeing.”
Meanwhile, a man named Ken, a former cop, also captured the moment from his home in Fredonia – five miles from where Kimberly was.
According to weather data, the sky was cloudy at the time – but there were no storms with thunder or lightning in the area.
A third witness, Andrea Lynn, posted four videos of multi-coloured lights rapidly moving across the sky earlier in the night in Howard – about 80 miles from Fredonia.
One of the videos showed a single white light appearing and then three more lights flashing in a triangular shape around it before they disappeared.
She wrote in a post on Facebook: “Has anyone in the Green Bay area seen the random groups of lights in the sky flying around? Any idea on what they are?
“I reached out to the National Weather service, and they told me they saw the same lights again a week later.”
A day later, on December 2, Chris Nowak said he and his family saw a baffling light display as they were driving in the area of Greenfield.
He said he saw a “purplish-blue” light hovering in thick clouds and then streaks of white lights.
“I’ve really never seen anything like it before,” he told the Daily Mail.
“It was like a row of illumination through the clouds and it would pulse through the sky incredibly quickly.”
Chris said he’s convinced it wasn’t searchlights in the sky – although many disagreed with him.
Social media users pointed to a similar case in Yokohoma, Japan in May – which turned out to be lights coming from a rehearsal at a nearby stadium.
Footage from the scene near the Nissan Stadium showed a number of lights zipping across the sky in a similar manner.
Another person thought the strange lights might be “military manoeuvres”.
But former FBI agent Hansen said the number of sightings in Wisconsin makes the UFO case “more compelling” – and dismissed the idea of searchlights.
Hansen, who also hosts Discovery+ show UFO Witness, said: “When you take into consideration the totality of the circumstances of what was witnessed and where it was filmed, this case just becomes more and more compelling.”
He added: “It’s interesting to note that the majority of worldwide UFO sightings are now reported as ‘light anomalies’ and not traditional shapes such as disks, cylinders, or triangles that normally come to mind.”
