Hi All,

Yes, my apologies -- I got the direction reversed. It was WNW to ESE.
(In my defense, I made the mistake of taking one of the early witness
reports at face value that the direction was going "east to west".)

Based on the Doppler data, the westernmost returns are at much higher
altitude than the easternmost returns, so there is no doubt this was
travelling toward the ESE. --Rob

Looks like WNW to ESE. This camera is pointing nearly directly west at
the lakefront in Milwaukee. (Building in video is US Bank)
