St. Paul, Minnesota Object Spinning In A Circle
U.S.A. UFO Reports Posted: January 15, 2005
Date: January 15, 2005 Time: 12:00 - 2:00 a.m.
http://www.hbccufo.org/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=2288

Approach_Direction: It was in the Eastern Sky Departure_Direction: It never departed, 
it stayed there doing these things almost all night till we got bored of it and went in. 
Witness_Direction: East

Description: I was sitting out on a lake with a friend of mine trying to pass time around 
1:30 in the morning. We were in my car, and I was rolling my cigarette. I looked over to 
my friend who had his eye set dead in the East sky from the twin cities area. So I looked 
up and in the distance I could not even begin to describe what I saw.

There was what looked like a star almost from how distant it was. It was no constant 
color though, it looked as though it were changing between red, green, and blue. And 
this object at random points would stop dead in the sky, begin spinning in a circle quickly 
stop again, then go like left, right, further away, closer back, etc.. But the way this object 
moved was like something I had never seen before...

With the directions in which it was moving, the speed it was moving, and the colors it 
gave off me and my friend ruled out any sort of device being flown in the distance by 
humans. I have never seen something like this in my entire life. I was so awestruck me 
and my friend watched it for almost a hour. I swear there's no way I'm going crazy, me 
and my friend should it to 4 other people and we all agreed no plane, helicopter, satellite, 
whatever could of done what that object was doing.

Can anyone identify with this?

Color/Shape: Seemed to be glimmering from red to green to blue, it looked round and 
elongated somewhat in shape

Height & Speed: It looked like a star from the distance away it was but we could tell with 
the easiness this object would stop and go back the other direction instantly was crazy. 
It would zig zag and turn in circles at quick speeds, changing color as it went in circles 
almost turning to different sections of this object.

Many small white dots floating high above ground.

A string of white dots floating in the sky. Only certain dots would
move, some moved suddenly quite quickly. Orginaly looked like stars.
three dots were about three times as large as the rest. Originally they
were in one long climbing line, but they grouped together. A large
stratus cloud had just recently passed by, moveing quite slowly to the
south, (I was positioned to the east of the city the dots were just
south of the city, almost above it.) Behind the white dots was blue sky

Oval shaped object performs remarkable aerial feats over Hastings, MN

I am a FI trainee with MUFON reporting here a sighting my sister had on
the evening of January 28th of this year. My sister was driving south on
Highway 61 in Hastings, MN en route to Winona when she spotted a bright,
oval shaped white light southeast of her position. There were scattered
clouds and the moon was fully visible. This object appeared at
approximately the 3-4 o'clock position relative to the moon and my
sister assumed that it was the light of an oncoming plane that she was
seeing until it began to perfom some very remarkable movements. From its
stationary position it rapidly decended vertically to near the horizon
level and hovered. It seemed either to be wobbling or to be flashing
lights, the clouds made it difficult to tell. The object then reversed
direction to head directly upwards approximately 1/3 the distance it had
initially decended then stopped again. After a second or two the object
shot off with incredible speed to the northeast before disappearing.

She had managed to reach me by cell phone during the sighting and was
obviously excited and seemed certain that she had seen no ordinary
aircraft. Unfortunately the object left the area before she was able to
take pictures. Also of note is the fact that she saw a vehicle pulled
over to the side of the road with a man and his child watching the
object through binoculars.  I plan to contact the local FAA to see if I can 
get any more information.

Feb., 2005 Reports


Subject: big lake bigger lights

Feb. 11th, 2005, 7:20 pm, 2 miles N. of Big Lake township I saw 8 and then 7 lights 
in a V formation reaching about 100 to 150 feet wide.  I do believe in UFOs and have 
seen 2 before but nothing this big or close.  It hovered maybe 300 feet off the 
ground with one of the lights going off or the craft turning.  The lights were yellow 
and steady, they did not blink.  

An unusual thing happened to me a believer,  I tried to explain it in other ways to 
the extent that I was hoping a new water tower was built.  Instead of driving towards 
it,  to much debate with myself, I chose to continue my drive to JP for dinner.  I was 
strangely frightened by this and unable to forget about it.  

I am more curious if I was the only one so early of an evening on a friday night.  It 
was visible to 25 and probably Hwy 10.  Could you let me know.  I'm embarrased to 
call the police and check myself.  I saw it for about 3 min.  
Thank you--  PS be careful for what you wish for,  you may get it.

Very bright "wing span" lights too large to seem like a plane with about
5 green lights in circular pattern in back on 2 very low pla

We were approaching an intersection on state Hwy 169 and a county road
next to Jordan. As we were approaching the intersection, I notice 4 very
bright lights - in a pair above the treeline in the west. I didn't know
what they were and my boyfriend thought they must be tower lights of
somekind. I was not aware of any toweres being built there, but thought
it might be a reasonable conclusion. As time went on, I thought they
were moving to the east and toward us and the town. At that point, we
thought they might be military planes as there is a strip in the area
somewhere. But, I felt these craft were too big to be military planes.
However, it was dark and so one couldn't see much but the lights. As we
passed through the interestion, I continued to watch and noticed the
lights on the craft. I felt they were not the usual lighting of
commercial planes. I am not that familiar with military planes, but the
back lights did not seem to reflect that of tail lights - but a circular
set of green lights (maybe 5). There was at least one red blinking
light. We turned around to get a better look while the crafts were
flying over the Hwy. We thought we would be able to get a good look
because they seemed to move slowly. But, as we turned around, we were
not able to see much else at a close range. They were at a low altitude
like military planes, but we did not hear any loud engine sounds like I
have heard in the past. I guess I didn't think that much about it
because we were in a car and may not have been able to hear a noise like
that. I think the biggest thing that stands out is that the "wing span"
of the bright 2 lights (left and right) seemed way too wide for a plane
and most of all, I have not seen green lights like that before on a
plane. I have seen lots of military planes in the area and this did not
seem to be like what I had seen before.

At about 1:00 AM on Wedsday 16th, 2005 I just came back from a movie and
as I was coming in my drive way i saw an small oval shaped object pass
through the woods at about 200 feet away. All that I could here was
trees knocking into into it as it was moving. I heard it stop crashing
into trees for about 30 seconds. Just after it flew out of the woods and
flash a red light for about half of a second.

stable tapered vertical light in sky

Last night I got out of bed ~1:30 to fetch my girlfriend a snack
(poached egg on toast; chocolate pudding). Upon returning to our bedroom
I looked out the window and saw a vertical streak of light starting just
above the tree line and extending perhaps 10 - 15 degrees into the sky.
The streak of light started narrow, got slightly wider and brighter in
the middle and then narrowed again. It was symetric both vertically and
horizontally. The light was a whitish/greening/blueish color, akin to
some northern lights displays I have seen. However, it did not shimmer /
wave as northern lights do. It did however slowly fade and brighten
repeatedly. We both watched it for about 15 minutes before going back to
sleep.

The sky had a fairly uniform cloud cover. Dark spots moved accross the
sky slowly, but it was not clear if these were darker clouds, or
openings in the clouds exposing dark night (I suspect the latter).
Regardless, the spots passed behind the light causing no change in
relative brightness. We could not judge the distance of the light.

We live in Minneapolis on Seabury Ave., which is directly on the
Mississippi River. The light was about 5 degrees SE of the Prospect Park
"witches hat" watertower: http://www.pperr.org/history/thetower.html

Checking a map to confirm the vector, I judge the light to have been
somewhere along the line running through the intersection of University
Ave. / Emerald St. and the centerpoint of the University of Minnesota's
School of Agriculture.

This light reminded my girlfriend of another odd light dispaly she saw
years ago with a friend: three bars of stable verticle light each of
which were truncated squarely on both the top and bottom.
Go figure.

March, 2005 Reports


Minnesota  Flying Triangle 

PLYMOUTH -- Lead Operations Specialist (name deleted) was driving home from 
work on Highway 494 northbound at 9 PM, on March 2, 2005.  He states, I saw this 
huge, white, bright light that was  more like three really bright, white lights that just 
ran together in the sky.  It was flying very low only 500 feet high or so and I thought 
a plane was going to crash???  It wasn't moving, made no noise and I was 
approaching it quite fast.  The lights were so bright!  And I was now about to drive 
directly underneath it and as I looked up I could see from directly below that it was 
triangular shaped.  Like a scalene triangle, but symmetric.  I could see it was black 
on the bottom with some sporadic little lights on it.  Creepy!  The weirdest thing is 
after I drove under it, I saw this dark object in the air behind it.  It looked like the 
bottom of what I had just seen.  The lights were so faint; I barely saw it moving 
through the air.  This aircraft was actually moving, but had no lights on.  There was 
a lot of traffic on the highway too so others saw it. There was no mention about it 
in the news. Thanks to Brian Vike.

3/5/05 Snowmobiling 9:30 p.m. on northern Mn. lake, several lights appeared above trees, 
blinking off and on, not moving, 45 min.

Two males snowmobiling out on a northern Minnesota lake on March 5th around 9:30 p.m. 
when they spotted lights above the trees; above some cabins. Four lights in a row, 3 
different lights blinking on & off, and different 2 lights blinking.

Lake is 1 and 1/2 miles long, 3/4 mile wide. The craft was down on one end of lake and 
large enough to block a television tower light which has never been out in 40 years.

They went and got two more friends, one male and one female. Craft was still there when 
they snowmobiled back onto the lake. One of the males said that he could see that there 
was metal or a shape reflected as the lights blinked off and on. It stayed in the same 
position and did not move.

They did comment that an airplane had flown over during the time they observed it. They 
left before the craft left because they were worried about the power on there machines 
going out. It was clear to all that these were lights not reflections. They have lived on this 
lake for many years and commented that they have never seen anything like this before.

Posted: 5/24/2005
Location: West St. Paul, MN
Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 seconds
Blue glowing sphere descends to Earth between ground witnesses and jet pilots
in Twin Cities, Minnesota.

I'm a licensed private pilot.
I was in my kitchen in West St. Paul looking out the window west northwest towards 
downtown Minneapolis 11 miles away from me. I saw a bright light over Minneapolis. 
I knew it was the landing light of a large jet on a downwind leg to land at Minneapolis 
International Airport.

My 10 year old son was the only one home with me at the time. He was in the living 
room watching t.v. The jet was coming directly toward me and also decending, so it 
looked from my perspective like a stationary light in the sky that was just growing 
larger and larger. So I thought it would be fun to play a joke on my son, so I said come
quick, there's a U.F.O!" He came running. We looked out the window at the landing 
light on the jet growing larger and larger. My son was in awe!

We watched it for about 2 minutes and then as it became near enough to us, we could 
finally see the red and green wingtip navigation lights and a blinking white strobe light 
on it's belly. I said to my son "oh boy, I guess it was just a jet plane after all!" (At this 
point, I would say that the jet was about 2 miles from us, maybe a bit farther).

No sooner had I finished saying that, both he and I saw a large spherical ball, I would 
guess about 50 feet in diameter, descend to Earth from an altitude much higher than 
the jet was flying. We were right at the window, and the object entered our fields of 
vision from the top of the window opening, so it must have come from an extremely 
high altitude. I have seen many meteors, and this was no meteor.

When it first appeared, it was falling in a slight arcing travel path from northeast to 
southwest, but very quickly changed into a strightline fall directly down all the way 
to Earth and disappeared behind the treeline. We didn't see it rise up again. I think 
it struck the Earth.

I know it wasn't a meteor because it fell much more slowly than a meteor would, 
like it's speed of descent was being controlled (imagine a meteor with a large drag 
chute, if you will.) The object was glowing in a very faint, light blue aura that reminded 
me of what a blue topaz gemstone looks like. It was EXTREMELY beautiful!

Me and my son looked at each other in amazement and we both said "what was 
that?!" at the same time! I say there were 4 witnesses to this sighting because the 
object came down in it's path of travel directly between me and my son and the two 
pilots of the jet. I know that there is NO WAY that those 2 pilots could have missed 
seeing it!

I watched the T.V. news and the newspapers for a few days afterwards hoping that 
there were many more witnesses and that there was a story to be told, but I never 
heard a word about it.

I'm not exactly sure of the date being March 10th, but I am sure it was in early 
March at about 6 p.m. I'm reporting it now, because as the weeks have gone 
passed, I am at an absolute loss to explain what I saw and I'll just bust if I don't 
tell somebody!

If this object indeed came to a rest on Earth, I would estimate it's current location 
would be along a line between the north end of the city of West St. Paul and 
downtown Minneapolis about 2, maybe 3 miles from West St. Paul toward 
Minneapolis. I would guess it hit the ground near Cherokee Park in St. Paul, or 
perhaps in the Mississippi River between the Ford Dam and downtown St. Paul.
I will never forget it's slow fall and beautiful faint light blue glow! Like an angel's halo!!!

((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS))
Hi! The best I could do to reconstruct the date was to look at our calender back in 
March for any unusual events. My wife gets home from work at 5:30 p.m., so she 
would have been home, but she wasn't. The only thing the calender shows is that 
on Mar. 8th, she was gone in the evening to our church for bible a study, so I believe 
now that the sighting was on Mar. 8th, 2005, not Mar 10th.

I didn't contact any investigators or authorities because this sphere was just so 
unusual that it just couldn't have been anything easily explainable (from Earth!). I 
figured if I watched the news carefully, the two jet pilots or the FAA controllers at 
Mpls. International would be speaking about it, or the fact that this thing came down 
near sunset but still very much in broad daylight in the center of a major metropolitan 
area would mean there were probably many thousands of witnesses, but nothing 
in the news ever appeared.

If I ever see anything like that again, I will certainly take careful notes, now that I have 
somebody like you guys that I can tell about it.

I'm 48 yrs. old, and I've never seen anything like that in my life! I kinda hope I don't 
see one ever again! Kinda scary in a way, not knowing what you just saw, you know?

Very bright white light speeding down HWY94 low in the sky, outside minneapolis 
on 3/19/05 10:45 pm

We were driving west on hwy 94, lots of traffic for a saturday night. We were coming 
home from a family birthday party and our kids were in the car behind us. Out of 
nowhere, coming from behind us and swooping over us was this incredibly bright white 
light moving silently past us. It was so white that I remember thinking that the on-coming 
head lights looked like a dull yellow. I have seen what looked like falling stars in the past, 
but this wasn't like that. It came right over us and everyone else on the freeway at that 
time.There was no noise. We called our kids in the car behind us right away and they 
too were in total amazement. It flew or glided horizontally unbelievably fast and when it 
reached the horizon you could see colors below it. I don't know how high it was, but if 
the IDS building were standing in the middle of the freeway, it would have smashed into 
it. What was it that we saw? and why didn't it hit the news? scary stuff

I was on my break at work and sitting out in my car, with the sunroof open.
I had my seat back and i was watching the sky. About 20 minutes had passed when, 
from my left, i saw a triangular object flying overhead. The lights on it were a faint 
orange, like nothing i had ever seen before. It was silent and flying very fast. Only 
lasted a few seconds. The object was very low as well. I couldnt believe what i was 
seeing but it couldnt be mistaken for anything other than what I had described above. 
After a few seconds, it had traveled into the treeline and i could see it no longer.

blinking and as it came over we heard nothing.

About 11:40pm it came back, This time it was going from north to south and still in 
the same shape. but as it went over the shape had started to change. The lights were 
white and the two times it went over it was moving at a very fast speed almost like

Shape: Chevron
Duration:10 seconds
Silent boomerang object seen in sky over Eagan, MN
Object appeared from the southeast travelling northwest. Because of surrounding 
trees, about 120 degrees of shy was visible overhead. It was a cloudless night.
The object was boomerang shaped or possibly trianglular. A series of dull lights, 
remimded me of amber bicycle reflectors, between five to seven of them, were 
arranged in a chevron pattern along the leading edge. I am unsure if the object was 
boomerang shaped or triangular since the lights were an a chevron pattern and the 
training edge of the object was not clearly visible.

The motion of the object caught my attention since it was balck but a bit more matte 
and light than the backgound sky, like a silhoutte. I initially thought from the size that 
I was seeing the silhouette of an eagle flying glow overhead when I first caught sight 
of the object from the corner of my vision, but as soon as I turned my attention to the 
object, I saw the lights and details. It clearly occluded the stars in the sky.

I cannot estimate the object, but it was about the same size as a bald eagle flying 
about 50 feet overhead. The object made no sound. It traversed the arc of the sky 
visible to me in about 8 seconds (about 120 degrees). The speed and direction of 
the object appeared constant during the time I observed it. The lights did not flash 
or otherwise change shape, posiiton of color. As I lost sight of it in the trees, I moved 
to a clear area which toook about 5 seconds. I was unable to locate the object in 
the sky again.

Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
I observed a bright orange triangle that made no noise and moved slowly into the North 
disappearing. A bright orange triangular object appeared from the East at treetop level.

It slowly moved Westerly in a wavy fashion. It then proceeded to move North slowly and 
faded off into the distance. The object made no sound. The night was clear and still. I 
observed this from my backyard on my deck and the neighborhood was quite dark.
On the Northern horizon there was a faint display of the Northern Lights in the distance.
The object seemed to disappear about the point where the Northern Lights faded. The 
object would fit in the full moon, if the full moon was about half its normal size.

((NUFORC Note: We express our gratitude to the Fergus Falls Daily Journal, and its 
award-winning journalist, Mr. Brandon Stahl, for publishing their article about this reported 
event. Please see other report from second witness in Fergus Falls. The source of this 
report indicated that the object was in the northern sky, from his vantage point. The second 
witness, who lived three blocks to the north of this witness, indicates that she had 
witnessed the object to the sourth, from her vantage point at her home. If that second report 
is true, the object may have been located between the two witnesses. PD))

Man witnesses peculiar, orange-colored, triangular object against the night sky.

Telephoned Report: A man called to report having witnessed a very peculiar, triangular
shaped craft, as it flew along a nearby river.

The witness reported that he awoke from sleep, and looked out the north-facing window 
of his residence at approximately 0250 hrs.. After a short period of time, he witnessed 
a very peculiar, triangular-shaped object, that was covered with many tiny orange lights. 
The net effect of the lights was to give the object an overall, distinctly orange color.

He added that the object appeared to be an equilateral triangle, and its apparent size, 
from his vantage point, he thought would have been slightly smaller than the apparent 
size of a full Moon in the night sky. The object slowly moved out of his sight to the east, 
after he had witnessed it for an estimated two minutes.

((NUFORC Note: We were first apprised of this incident by Mr. Brandon Stahl, a 
journalist for the Daily Journal Newspaper in Fergus Falls, MN. We express our 
gratitude to Mr. Stahl, and to the Daily Journal, for their sharing the information with 
our Center. That newspaper will publish an article about the incident in their May 21, 
2005, issue, which can be read here: http://www.fergusfallsjournal.com/
We spoke with the witness via telephone, and he seemed quite serious-minded to us, 
and his description of the object seemed very objective. PD))

Woman reports witnessing a "bright red sphere" in the southern sky, viewed from her home.

Telephoned Report: A woman called from Fergus Falls, MN, to report that she had 
witnessed the same object that had been reported in a May 21, 2005, article by the Fergus 
Falls Daily Record.

The woman reported that at 02:53 hrs. (local) on Friday morning, May 20, 2005, she had
 witnessed from here home in Fergus Falls a "bright red sphere" in the southern sky. She 
reported that the light was "solid, not blinking," and that it was moving to the west, i.e. from 
her left to right.

She also stated that she had taken a photograph of the object, and volunteered that her 
location was "just three blocks from the other witness." ((NUFORC Note: The woman who 
submitted this report is known to the original witness, who reported having seen at 03:00 
hrs. a triangular object, imbedded in orange light, and covered with tiny, distinct orange 
lights on its surface.

Given that the female witness has not submitted a written report, and given that neither 
NUFORC, nor any of the residents in Fergus Falls, has seen her alleged photograph, 
we have to consider whether this report may be a hoax, submitted by a "wannabe" 
witness, responding to the newspaper article.

We are saddened by this situation, given the convincing nature of the report from the first 
witness, but we feel duty-bound to share this fact with those who may read all the reports 
about the alleged event over Fergus Falls. PD))

NOT a sattelite.

I was standing outside smoking a cigarette and watching the sky when I noticed what 
I thought was a sattelite. Usually when I spot these I like to follow them across the sky, 
so as I was doing so I noticed it's trajectory wasn't straight.

Just as I was questioning this I raised my arm up to form a straight line of what should 
have been the trajectory if it were a sattelite. When I did this I watched it turn about 45 
degrees from what should have been it's straight line orbit.

As I took note of this I lowered my arm, and when I was done lowering my arm the 
object was then gone. I checked the sky for a few more seconds for cloud cover, but 
there was none it was perfectly clear.

5 Dark Round-Orbs in a String Form Decending form the Cloud Bank

I saw 5 round orbs flying down out of a cloud bank and I grabbed my digital camera 
(Fine Pix S3000) and started shooting some pictures. I only was able to get one that 
came out visable. They were moving at a moderate speed and move up, down and 
looped back up into the cloud bank out of my vision. They were a dark - grey/blackish 
color, and in the photo they look black. It was a grey day and you can see a tree top 
in the bottom of the photo - but the most incredible part is the 5 orbs/ships that are 
what looks like stringing down in formation of some kind from the clouds.

July, 2005 Reports


Crosby, Minnesota A Strange Object Witnessed By Four People
Date:  July 3, 2005
Time:  Approx. 10:00 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 4
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Oval

Full Description of event/sighting: We were camping in Crosby on the lake for the 
Fourth of July Weekend. Myself, boyfriend, and two friends were visiting our campsite, 
sitting around campfire eating chips and cheese dip and talking. Not intoxicated in case 
that matters.

All of a sudden as I stood up to find my cigarettes, I saw something strange in the sky. 
Not really based on my vision but on the eerie feeling I got-the guys were still talking at 
this point I still couldn't stop staring at it. I tried to look away but just couldn't. Then one 
of my friends turned around, and I knew right away that he saw it too. It was a moment 
or two before we could say anything. Then all four of us, our eyes were like they were 
glued to it-so strange. As we all stood and watched it, it began to move to the right. 
Very slowly and in a perfectly straight line. We kept watching as it the moved up, down 
again, to the left then the right- back and forth several times, but still very slow and 
straight in every movement. Perfectly straight lines- I have never seen anything move 
like that. Then it moved to the right again slowly until it went towards a tree, then 
vanished. It didn't fly away, just gone suddenly.

All of us agreed instantaneously that we were so glad each other were there to witness 
this because no one would believe us otherwise. And we all had the same feeling, like 
we couldn't stop watching it till it was gone.

Thank you to the eyewitness for their report.

4 sets of light lines moving at 50 degree angles on the horizon; one appeared to 
have a bright light off one end.

After watching the sunset, we noticed a strange phenomena in the
afterglow light. There were 4 sets of light/lines across the sky each at
an angle of 50 degress or so. At first we thought they might be jet
contrails, but they were very defined, without any broken up pattern in
the line like contrails leave. Two of us watched the lights and called
the other 2 in our group to observe. They moved at the angle they were
pointed in, slightly downward and then one moved out of sight. Another
appeared to move out of sight and then it started going upward in the
same angle and another one above it moved downward, maintaining the same
amount of space from each other as they traveled in opposite directions.
One line had a bright light off the end of it that appeared briefly.
Finally after about 20 or so minutes the light lines disappeared.

I thought it was a star until I watched it slowly move across the sky
appearing to start and stop as it went along.

I let my dogs out around 11:15p.m. and was just looking in the sky
from my driveway when i saw a point of light in the southeast that was
traveling towards the northeast. what struck me as odd was that it would
appear to start and stop as it made it's way across the sky. When it got
to the northeast another point of light appeared to travel straight up
and meet it. It seemed like 10-15 seconds passed, then the one i
originally saw went straight up as the other one went straight down. I
lost the second one in the trees, but the first one went up a short ways
and then appeared to just stop again. At that point i went in to get my
husband who was watching tv and he came out and we both looked at where
it was, but it was gone, nothing else was moving. Neither objects had
any flashing lights, they were so far away just points of light. I could
hear highway sounds, so maybe it had a sound but i couldn't distinguish one.

Cohasset, Minnesota Bright White Lights In A Triangular Formation 
Date:  July 10, 2005
Time:  10:30 p.m.
Location of Sighting: Cabin Resort near Cohasset, MN
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Triangle?
Full Description of event/sighting: While staying at a cabin resort with relatives and 
friends, I had occasion to walk from one cabin to the other alone at about 10:30 p.m. 
There are many tall trees at this resort and when I looked up at the clear night sky 
between the trees, I saw a vehicle of some sort passing over head. The vehicle made 
absolutely no sound, which made me question it being an airplane. It consisted of 
three, bright white lights in a triangular formation and it moved fairly slowly across 
the sky. Its altitude appeared to me to be only a few thousand feet. I could not see 
its body shape per se because of the darkness. I was able to watch it pass over 
head for about ten or fifteen seconds before it became obscured by the trees. One 
odd thing about it was that it had no flashing or colored lights. I may be wrong but, 
I believe  aircraft are required to have flashing and colored lights for safety reasons.
Thank you to the witness for the report. Brian Vike, Director HBCC UFO Research,

It looked like a planet - but moved

I noticed what looked like a yellowish orange planet just over the east
horizon, but the planet/object was twinkling, which appeared
uncharacteristic of a planet. Opon closer evaluation while standing
outside, I noticed the object would slowly drift to the side and
downward,and then upward again. The object did not necessarily return to
its original position or appear to be moving away. I would have to say
the object was several miles away, but I really could not determine it's
actual distance. ((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous;

Red and White flashing light over Twin Cities

I saw what appeared to be a UFO from my home in Eagan last night. It was
too far away to make out any shape, but after looking at my star
software, I ruled out any planet, star or other celestial object. It had
caught my attention because it was so bright, like a bright Mars in the
sky, or a tad brighter and larger. But it was white, like a star and it
was flashing red. I needed to know what it was, but after viewing my sky
astronomy software and finding nothing even closely matching, I realized
it must be something else. The object could be seen looking into the
western sky at about 11:30pm, and finally going out of vision (very
small spec by this time but the flashing red still visable) at about
2:00am, traveling very slowly in a west-ward direction. I grabbed my
camcorder to see if I could zoom in any closer on this object. While I
did record the flashing red, you can't make out anything else. Please
let me know if you have any questions.

Strange colorful light in the sky

I was on my way to work and noticed a star that was very bright. Well
the more I looked at it the more I thought it wasn't a star. When I
arrived at my work, I got out of my car to look at it more closely. It
wasn't too high in the sky just about where planes would be at and it
moved very strangely. It would make quick little jerks just about in any
direction and zig-zag like movements also. It changed into different
colors very rapidly. It was almost like it was a color strobe light in
the sky. It lasted for about an hour. I went back out side around 1 am
and it was gone.

Posted: 9/2/2005
Location: Minnetonka, MN
Shape: Triangle
Duration:26 seconds
Triangular plane like object seen close to ground with little noise,
moved very little over the course of 26 seconds then was gone.

I was pulling off of the highway and thought I was seeing Mars in the
distance. I was driving towards it in my car and noticed it was too
close to be Mars because it was growing in size with regards to my
approach. I pulled towards it and noticed some blinking lights... but it was not
moving or not moving much. I pulled into the CompUSA parking lot on
Hopkins Crossroad and 394 and observed it some more... it seemed to be
about 200 feet away.

At first I thought it was a plane, but it wasn't moving quickly enough.
It was very close. I considered a helicopter, but it didn't seem to be
the right shape or light configuration. I parked my car, grabbed my camera, and 
stepped out into the parking lot. As I grabbed my camera, it started to move. 
Outside of the car I could hear a slight whirring sound like the sound of a jet, 
but it was way too quiet to be that close to me. In addition, the sound was not
shifting like a Doppler effect would cause. It was constant.

I had been taking photos of the moon (or trying to), so my camera was
set to accommodate the brightness of the moon against the night sky. I
was not thinking straight enough to realize this until after around five
photos taken... probably over the course of 10 seconds. Still too
shocked to think straight, it traveled past me and I stopped taking
pictures to get a better look at it with my eyes.

It definitely had lights and looked like a very triangular plane of some
sort. It looked closest to the F117 shape if it was a plane. It had two
white lights and a flashing red light in the middle... again, like a
plane might have. But it was much closer than a plane could have been,
was traveling too slowly, and wasn't loud enough.

I changed the settings on my camera and, by that time, the object had
passed by me (this is around 15-20 seconds since I stepped out of my
car). I started taking some pictures that actually turned out. The
lights kept the same spacing, more or less, despite the angle from which
I was viewing it. It was black and when the red light flashed, I could
see a slight outline of the thing. The two photos that came out best
show it against a building.

It moved across only 15% of the viewing area between the two photos and
my digital camera stamped the times five seconds apart. That seems far
too slow to be a plane. The object seemed to be pulling over the highway
when I noticed another set of lights to my left. I watched those for a
moment... but I realized that those were just a normal plane. I turned
back to watch the original object but it was nowhere to be seen.

I got in my car and tried to follow approximately where it seemed to be
headed but I didn't see it again. I have those photos and they mostly
show the two white lights.

I drove to a hill where I saw a UFO zipping around in the distance
around six years ago and I saw what might have been it quite a bit
further out. It was moving slowly, again, and it was moving in the
opposite direction. Over the course of two minutes it made its way
across the whole horizon. It might have been a standard plane... the
camera was having a hard time snapping photos that showed any detail.
The only thing odd about it was the trajectory... it was moving in an
arc instead of a straight line. But it never came much closer.

Minnesota flying triangle 

MINNETONKA  On August 23, 2005, I was pullinng off the highway and realized a light 
was too close to be Mars because it was growing in size. I pulled into the Hopkins 
parking lot and observed an object about 200 feet away.  It was a flying triangle very 
close to ground with little noise. It moved very little over the course of 26 seconds then 
was gone at 10:25 PM.  As it started to move, I grabbed my camera and took five photos 
in the course of ten seconds. I could hear a slight whirring sound like the sound of a jet. 
It looked like a triangular plane similar to the F-117 with two white lights and a flashing 
red light in the center   and traveling too slowly.  The object passed by  15 seconds 
later and I took some photos. It was black and when the red light flashed, I could see 
a slight outline of the thing. The two photos that came out best show it against a building. 
It moved across only 15% of the viewing area between the two photos and my digital 
camera stamped the times five seconds apart. That seems far too slow to be a plane. 
The object pulled over the highway and disappeared.

Flashing Ring floats S-SW from Minneapolis view area 45 minutes.
From Maple Grove, MN looking south recognized an odd flickering of light
for what I would expect to be a star or planet. Watched for 10 minutes
noticing that the object moved ver slow across the sky.

Used aircraft leaving MSP Airport as reference to object as they were
moving many miles closer to my location. Could discern what apeared to
be red and green blinking lights.

Retrieved binoculars and telescope. Binoculars confirmed the twinkling
light, but unable to see much else other than the slow movement S to SW.
21:45 set up telescope and targeted object. Clearly saw what appeared to
be a planar ring shape glowing modest white/yellow light, with bright
white lights flashing around the diameter in an orderly
counter-clockwise direction. Ring did not appear completely rigid, but
could have been as it may have been "wobbling" or deforming. Object
appeared to remain planar, and did not expand or contract. Looked much
like what you would see under a microscope looking at a small bacteria
or sea animal. Green and Red lights would periodically flash from what I
can best describe as directly perpendicular to the ring plane. Looked
like a donut with an imaginary center post kind of like a spinning top.
As the object moved to the SW, it fell below the house and tree lines
and I gave up watching about 22:15.

Sept., 2005 Reports


Round Silver Object
Shakopee, MN
September 2, 2005, 5:30pm
"I was coming home from work on September 2, 2005. It was about 5:30pm, perhaps 5:45pm. 
I was driving south on the 169. I had just passed where the freeway had split off to 18 and 
hwy 13. I still was on the 169. I noticed up in the sky a round silver object. At first I thought it 
was a plane. I looked up at it a several times thinking that it was kind of strange looking plane. 
Suddenly a bright light came from the object, so bright I was blinded for a second. I was 
looking at it at the time. I thought that it was a reflection from the sun, but with the entire 
airplanes I have seen in my life I have not ever seen it reflect light like that. Because I was 
driving, I had to keep glancing at the road as I was trying to follow the strange looking plane. 
After the bright light, the object was there for about a minute or less then it disappeared. It 
left no vapor trail. And I kept glancing up to see if I could spot it again, but I no longer could 
see it."

We saw an object in the sky that didn't appear to be moving. It shot out lights in all 
directions from it's center. The lights would switch from green to red. I thought it was 
an advertising gimmick of some sort. I wanted to drive over to where the light was 
comming from to see what was causing it. The others who saw it, (my wife & 2 kids, 
and 2 of their cousins, decided to go inside instead. I stood outside watching it and 
the lights were red and they slowly faded away twards the objects center.

Then the object slowly flew off to the South. It blinked red and green as it flew. At 
that time I noticed another object further East and North that seemed to be the same 
kind of craft. It was blinking red and green also, but did not shoot lights out from it's 
center. I got my wife to come out and see the 2nd similar object. I wouldn't have 
thought anything of them had the first one not shot out those lights.

Here's the strange part. We were having a weenie roast outside, and to impress the 
kids I shot off 4 fireworks. We were heading inside right after the last firework when 
we first noticed the first object. I called the Washington County Sheriffs office an hour 
later to see if anyone else had reprted seeing these objects and was told no. When 
I described the shooting lights The lady on the phone asked me if I was sure they 
were not fireworks. The sighting ended about 10 minutes after I first noticed them 
as they flew out of sight to the South. ((NUFORC Note: Possible twinkling stars, we 
suspect. Just a guess. PD))

Bright colorfull glowing ball
My wife and I video taped an object glowing blue, green, red, and white in one place for 
about an hour out our back door from 3:00AM until 4:00AM. Object is slowly moving 
from east to west sky. Called flight services and MPLS airport reported no aircraft in 
the area. My wife has seen this before and I didn't believe her. This time she woke me 
up. We don't know what this is, rotating and changing color fairly rapidly. Have video 
and pictures and will hope to get any explanation. ((NUFORC Note: Possible star. PD))

floating, moving object in Park Rapids,MN
My wife and I were taking our two dogs out to do their duty,when we had seen a 
strange light I mistook as a bright version of Mars. As we kept looking at it,the color 
was more golden than anything else. As we continued looking at it, it was moving 
in a erratic behavior, similiar to the pattern the lady you reported in Canada saw. It 
had been showing itself at night every night this week. Being a stargazer myself, I 
don't believe it to be a plane, a star,planet or any other mundane, ordinary object I 
know of.)   ((NUFORC Note: Probable sighting of Mars? PD))

Slow moving bright light moving across early morning sky!
While I was outside having a smoke it was around 6:10 am people were driving off to 
work or to breakfast, I was enjoying the moon and stars also mars was directly west 
just above the horizion the moon was at 1200 high.

Then while looking at mars a light came out of nowhere just to the left of mars it and 
started moving toward south and slowly turning easterly it was moving slow it was not 
a plane or jet it just had the one light and it did not blink, my neighbor just backed out 
of the driveway and took off and a lady giving her dog a early morning walk just went 
by my house, I was standing on the steps which face west and walked down to the 
middle of my driveway and I was looking for this light, and it had stopped directly to 
the south just above the horizion! It just sat there I watched it and it watched me the 
light was moving around back and forth up and down just floating in the sky and it 
looked like little white lights would go around it once in a while and seems to give off 
some sort of light flashes it was bright there was like light branching off the top to the 
left and right of the object, kind of like when you squint your eyes and look at a light.
It was about 6:30 now I went in the house to lay down I was still tired too earlty to get 
up yet. I dozed off and woke up about 7:05am sure enough the light was still up there 
moving around and bobbing up and down, then just all of a sudden it vanished just as 
strange as it appeared! There was no engine noise the whole time I had been viewing 
it and it was approx. the height of the smaller planes when they go by I know it was 
not a star or a plane or jet or satlelite! Thanks, keep looking up everybody they are 
out there!!!   ((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides

Two UFO's Sighted in Northern MN
My husband and I were out on our back deck when I noticed 3 white, blinking lights 
in the southern sky. We thought it was unusual to have 3 airplanes that close together, 
especially since we don't see many planes here in northern MN. They were headed in 
a westerly direction. One of the lights eventually veered SW and then we heard the 
sound of it's jet engines so we knew it was indeed an airplane.

The other two blinking lights continued to travel west, making no sound, and then 
suddenly one of them took a 90 degree turn, which surprised us because airplanes 
can't turn that quickly. It turned again and continued to travel in a NW direction with 
the other blinking light. We followed their course in the sky for about 10 minutes when 
suddenly it looked as if they connected to each other and 4 GIANT beams of light 
shone down from the craft. It was almost too bright to look at but you could definitely 
tell there were 4 lights. It illuminated a very large area. This lasted for about 5 minutes 
and then just disappeared. No more blinking lights at all.

Bright star-like light is seen staying in one spot, then quickly moves when witnesses 
try to investigate further. The object in the sky looked very much like a large star, and 
was first seen from a window within the house. I looked out of the window, and saw 
a bright light. Although it did look like a star, it was far to large, and was pulsating.
It stayed in one spot for quite some time, but as soon as two of the witnesses went 
outside, it began moving off very quickly in a southeast direction.

I have already sent a report on this, but wanted to mention a mistake I made. The 
object I seen was SSW. Would of there been possibly a star in this area? I was 
looking directly South. The moon was out and this object was was about halfway 
between the horizon and the moon and about 15 degrees to the right. Excatly 
where the MTKA sighting was on the same date. Not that I was seeing the same 
object. But it was really something to see. If anyone could just give me friendly 
email to let me know, it would be very much appreciated. I Have always been 
very interested in UFO's ever since as a child at the age of about 13 me and 
about 6 other kids were out in a swampy area in Minnetonka, where I grew up. 
We used to go out in the cat tails and and pat down a circle and hang out together. 
One evening it was getting dark, and we all decided that we should probably get 
going. We all stood up and, when one of my friends looked up and said hey look 
at that! I looked up and to my surprise was three star looking objects in a triangle. 
the wierd thing is that this tringle of three star looking objects were so high up 
that they looked to be up in space, and also that they were moving at a slight 
angle straight up into space. As far away as they were ( if you held out a marble 
in your fingers that's about how spaced they were), the triangle had to be so far 
apart I can't even begin wonder how far apart they were to make that triangle. 
They just kept moving almost staight up into space tell we couldn't see them. 
This all happenend in a matter of about 20 to 30 seconds. Very impressive. I hope 
I am not wasting your time, but after seeing that I have always been very interested.

Outside Of Ellendale, Minnesota Object Interacts With Witnesses Vehicle
Date: November 24, 2005 Time: 8:45 p.m.
U.S.A. UFO Reports Posted: December 6, 2005
Number of witnesses: 4 Number of objects: 1 Shape of objects: Bright blue- white "Orb"

Full Description of event/sighting: Thanksgiving night, my friends and I were going for a 
drive out in the country near our hometown. It was a very clear Minnesota sky, showing 
the stars like it always does. As we conversed in the car, I instinctively noticed an odd 
bright light that seemed kind of unusual. I watched it for about 10 seconds before I told 
my friends to take a look.

It being so bright is what got my attention, but what it was about to do was borderline 
creepy. By this time we were all fixed on this object that we determined immediately 
was not a plane or helicopter. I noticed the object was moving unlike anything I have 
ever seen. It would move back and forth, up and down in the sky, constantly changing 
position. It was not a steady path of some human made machine.

Now by this time everyone in the car was somewhat bewildered. We literally couldn't 
believe what we were seeing. At a certain point the driver of the vehicle proceeded to 
park, to see if maybe it was because of the movement of our vehicle. This is when 
the object interacted with us. The object suddenly stopped. This made me very 
unsteady. As we watched the light, it seemed to be coming towards us, acknowledging 
our presence. The light became brighter and larger, something that happens when 
something comes closer. I caught about the worst vibe you could imagine. I 
immediately told the driver to drive, and get out of the area. The driver agreed, and we 
sped off. The light continued to interact with us, it proceeded to race along side the 
vehicle when we gunned it.(when I say along side of us I mean in the sky, at a low 
elevation) We all freaked out, and all of a sudden it shot off in one direction, dimming 
to nothing, as if leaving the atmosphere. To put the icing on top of the cake, my friend 
looks directly to the back of the vehicle, and there it was again, behind us. Probably 
the most frightening thing I've ever seen. And suddenly it was gone. To this day, 
everyone in that vehicle agrees we saw something that was not from here. Aliens...? 
Maybe. UFO...? Most defiantly.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
