From the April 13, 1897 Burlington [Iowa] Hawk-Eye, a description of another urban setting, the dual Milwaukee sightings on the day after the Chicago sighting. I thought you might be interested: "It was first seen on the northern horizon, and about the only persons who were up at the time and were not seeing things double, were a few newspaper men, police officers and a guard at the house of correction. All of these are willing to make oath they saw an airship come from the north a little before the break of daylight and that it disappeared again, reversing itself and fading from view in the north. Last night the stranger made its appearance again in the heavens around 9 o’clock. It came from the northeast from out over the lake [Michigan]. There was no possibility of a mistake this time. Thousands of people saw it, and in a few minutes they were following the machine as it floated over the city. It traveled towards the southwest until it reached a point directly over the City hall, where it stopped for a quarter of an hour. Then the excitement in the downtown districts became intense. It was reported that attempts were being made to anchor the machine."

Many of the mysterious airships sighted in 1897 were likely man made dirigibles.
