Shape: Disk
Duration:1 1/2 hrs.
We saw a disk shape craft with lights that circled around the craft changing colors 
from white,to red, green,and blue

At about 8:30 P.m. , My husband noted a brighter light and told my foster son and I 
to come and look at the U.F.O . Not really believing him I went in and looked thinking 
he was foolish as well as my 15 yr. old foster son.  We saw at first a bright light and 
then as we watched it , it began to change colors in a circler motion .The lights went 
around the craft changing from white , to green to red and blue. It hovered for the 
longest time and then it began to come a little closer. I got the binaculars and looked 
and I could see the shape . It was shape in a disk shape or like what you would see 
in the alien shows . The coolest part was that we were able to see what appeared 
to be windows all along the top half of the craft. The U.F.O Stayed around for about 
1 1/2 hrs . We saw it again on 01/03/03 and my 21 yr. old daughter saw it too.  we 
have been watching for it tonight but haven't seen anything as of yet .
((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witnesses were looking at a celestial body. PD))

Shape: Light
After seeing a UFO with a bunch of friends at a lake in 1974 (Minnesota), I have had 
many odd occurances. This one happened in my home right after I had gone to bed.
I was laying there and saw the bright white/blue light coming from the area at the back 
of the house off my porch. (I'VE SEEN THIS LIGHT BEFORE) Next thing I am laying 
there unable to move and there is a strange small lizardy looking creature next to my 
bed. Think of a lizardy looking Ewock from Star Wars. My thought is it seem ludicrous 
how it's attired. Next thing I'm waking up. But I remember the incident, Cause I wasn't 
asleep yet. ((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. Witness describes self as a

North East Minneapolis, USA Another Unusual Morphing Object Filmed
Date: February of 2003
Time: 2:00 p.m.

http://www.hbccufo.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=1640 HBCC
UFO Research Note: I have the video clip here and it shows a very
interesting object which moves slowly through the sky. From what I
observe from the clip is that the object appear to be morphing,
certainly changing shape as it moves along. Also something else which is
extremely interesting is that at one end of the object, there is what
appears to be a reflection off of the object caused by the sun, or the
object has it's own light source which it is creating. You will see this
also in the center part of the object from time to time as well. This is
really an interesting bit of footage.

Also the clip is 4.91mbs in size and I will post it for a "short time
only" due to bandwidth concerns. Then I will take it down. All of the 18
photos will remain, these still shots were taken from the clip in order.
But there would have been hundreds that I could have grabbed but this
will give everyone an idea of what and how the object acted.

I shot a very similar object on video in North East Minneapolis. back on
a cold day in February of 2003... Before I saw the Dallas UFO, I
couldn't rule out the possibility that it was some black balloons, but
what are the odds of two videos looking so much alike? It gives off
irregular brilliant flashes that are too bright to be reflections of a
balloon, and balloons would have a constant reflection.
What could this morphing object be?

Additional Information below:
Q. - First of all, can you remember the time when this took place ?
A: just after 2:00 p.m.

Q. - In what part of the sky was the UFO located? North, South, East,
West? On the horizon or straight overhead or somewhere in between?
A: it was SE from my location moving North

Q. - When the UFO moved? How far and how fast? Describe its movements in
detail please.
A: It wasn't moving very fast I'd guess between 20-30 Mph., constant
altitude about 40 Deg. from Horizon, I filmed it for about 2 minutes,
until it was too far to see.

Q. - Can you please describe the appearance of the UFO: shape, size,
distance, color, texture, sound.
A: It seemed to be matte black with 3 round sections that appeared to
move yet stay attached to each other. It emitted a bright flash from
each section (1 section at a time) It's hard to judge size and distance,
but I got the impression it was only '5 to '7 in length. it made no
sound that I could hear. If I hadn't been scanning the skies, I'd never
have noticed it.

Q. - Can you describe the area in which you made the sighting. Is it
near an airport? An Air Force Base? A military or research installation
of any kind?
A: It's about 3 miles NE of downtown Minneapolis in over Hwy 36, in the
'Home Depot' parking lot. It is a high air-traffic sky (In fact I was
filming chemtrails) I was using a Canon Elura MiniDV w40x digital zoom.

Q. - Also I noticed a contrail high above in some of the frames. Did the
Jet happen to make any changes in direction that is if you noticed ?
A: No, they are much too high and the object is much too small for them
to see. I lost sight of it a few times until it flashed.

Photos and video clip are ©2004'SS'

Video clip 1 is of Unknown shaped morphing object 4.91mbs
Pictures can be viewed at:
The video clip may be pulled by the time you received this report due to
bandwidth, but the 18 pictures will remain.

News report reported a large object in the sky that they could notidentify. It
was invisible, but it did have a radar bounce, they checked radar for precip and
there was none. Initally they reported the object over the Dakotas moving into 
Minnesota during the broadcast. Throughout the broadcast it was brought up 
how unusual this was.

When the 6 Oclock news came on nothing at all was mentioned. Evening news
same thing, not a single channel mentioned it. This was very strange with how
much the 5 oclock news had made such a big deal about this. 

Up to this time, the invisible mothership is still in orbit and still can be tracked on 
radar. I was hoping to find a way to get more info about this, Im kinda excited.

Shape: Light
Duration:until daylight
circular blue/white light with sparks shooting out from all sides

I was up very late and looked out of my window to see if it was snowing. In the SW 
sky, I saw a circular light, it seemed to rotate in a circle, one side of it was a blue 
light, the other side was a white light. It had sparks shooting out all the way around 
it in a circular fashion. It rotated clockwise. It would stay stationary most of the time, 
but occasionally shooting in different directions. I have stayed up late on numerous 
occasions since then, and have seen the exact same thing anywhere from 11:30 
p.m. on, lasting all night as far as I know. My friend can see the same thing from 
her apartment window. I traveled 10 miles North of here, and I could see it in the 
SW sky. This seems to be there every night. I have mentioned it to a few people, 
and they think I'm seeing things, but I know what I saw, and see every night.
((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate, but the date may not matter in this case. 
We suspect the witness was looking at the star, Sirius, which would be in the 
SW sky at this hour of the morning. PD))

I watched this on live tv on cnn, fox news, msnbc. It was durning the war coverage.
They were showing the live feed from baghdad. Shots were going up in the air,
but there was no planes seen. There was one object in the shy. It looked like it 
mite be a large star, then it began to move from right to left. The camera in 
Baghdad followed it. You could see someone shoot at it and it took off straight up 
then it came back down and keep moving to the right. I started my vcr so I do 
have some of it on tape. I keep checking the enternet to see if some one besides 
myself and my to sons saw this. ((NUFORC Note: We will request permission 
to view the tape. However, our suspicion is that there is a vastly greater likelihood 
that the object is a terrestrial aircraft of some variety. PD))

Location: Saint James, MN
Shape: Formation
Duration:at least 30 minutes 
I saw a cluster (7 min.) of tiny lights stationery in the sky like 
stars with shimmering lights for at least a half hour.

I looked out my window as I was in bed and noticed a cluster of tiny 
lights in the sky. I thought at first that it was an airplane but the 
cluster didn't move. I watched diligently for about a half hour 
before falling asleep. The lights shimmered slightly and stayed in 
the irregular shaped formation. At 2:30 A.M. I awoke and checked the 
area in the sky. The cluster had disappeared. This was a very clear 
night I have seen reflections from satellites and man made objects 
in space but this did not appear like those. I couldn't estimate a 
distance but it looked like tiny stars. The shimmering lights 
reminded me of looking through an astronimic telescope and seeing 
the atmospheric shimmering effect. I am a retired Industrial Designer, 
of sound mind, and always interested in details. This is the only 
sighting I have witnessed of a supposed anomaly in space.

star shaped moving south to west in straight, and up and down

In the southern sky I seen a star like obj.(same shape, size 
and color) moving toward the west, sometimes straight and then 
up and down and then back to straight, half way into the siteing 
it grew very bright white, while growing to basketball size, 
flashing like it was going to explode and then returned to its 
star like self in size, shape and color. When I returned in a 
minute or so from waking another in the house to see this, it 
was gone. I continued to search in all directions in the sky, 
but seen nothing like it or have ever seen anything like it 
before. The whole siting lasted a minute or so. It was a clear 
night with many stars. I am not in the star field, but do gaze 
upon the sky often, but have never seen anything like this 
before, I have seen shooting stars and the northern lights and 
it was not like that.
((NUFORC Note: Object could not have been a satellite, and it 
almost certainly could not have been a meteor. PD))

Vivid green fireball
I was sitting in our living room when I saw a green fireball shoot through a portion 
of the sky that is visible through one of the windows in the room. It was so clear 
that it almost looked like some sort of firework. It was visible to me for approx.
1-2 seconds before trees in our yard blocked the view. I assume that it was a 
meteor or something similar but figured I should report it in case it corroborates 
with someone elses report.

Three objects, two headed north, one headed south, all about 2 
minutes apart.

My wife was outside and noticed a meteor shoot across the sky. She 
came inside to tell us about it, and myself and my 3 sons went 
outside to see if there were any more. Within 2 minutes my wife 
noticed an object traveling north, higher than a plane, consistent 
speed. Another couple minutes passed, we observed another, in almost 
the same path as the first. About 4 minutes later we observed another 
traveling south, opposite direction as the first two, but in what 
looked to be the same flight path. The sky became hazy and our 
observation ended.

Very bright light close to house

An hour ago, my wife woke me up to take our oldest back to bed. 
She seemed quite awake and I assumed she was just getting into bed 
late for some reason. For some reason, something made a noise 
outside and my wife jumped. I asked her if she had checked all the 
doors before coming to bed and she had not, so I double-checked 
everything. When I was down in the basement (walk-out) I was checking 
the door to our backyard when I noticed the entire back yard was 
lit up. My mind ran through the various options and came up blank.

The light source (which I could not directly see from my location) 
was somewhere on the other side of the trees but must have been very 
close from how bright everything was - practically daylight, with 
shadows being cast from ABOVE the trees. I watched for about 15 
seconds, then decided to get a better angle from upstairs, which 
overlooks the yard and our neighbors yard as well. By the time I 
went up 1 story (maybe 10 seconds to go up the stairs), the backyard 
was completely dark again.

I ran upstairs and asked my wife if she had seen the bright light. 
She said yes. We were both a bit puzzled by it, and a bit freaked 
out. She asked me to bring our oldest BACK to our bed (when does 
that ever happen?) and I opened the door next to ours with the little 
one. Somewhat jokingly, I told her I was going to use her computer 
to do a Yahoo search on "Chanhassen UFOs" - she said "DO IT!", so 
here I am…
((NUFORC Note: We have attempted to correspond with this witness, 
but the e-address he provides is defective, despite the fact that 
he identifies himself as a software engineer. This report seems to 
be from a serious-minded source, but we are uncertain on that point, 
based on the error in the personal and contact data. PD))

 Bob and I were driving in my car home to Babbitt,after working in Ely-going
 slightly southwest on Hwy 21,a wooded road with alot of wildlife to be on the
 watch for..it was about 904 pm,the sun was still very well up and it was
 bright-I happened to glance up over the treeline,as I often do,and to the
 East-northeast saw what appeared at first to be a large jet airliner.What
 caught my attention was its size,shape,and colorbrightness.It was a flattened
 rectangle,like a cigar box viewed from the side,and VERY bright and
 reflective,not at all the dull aluminum tone of a plane.It was much too large
 to be a small plane,and it was hovering in place.We both were struck by the
 reflective nature of the craft,and its flight path-watched it for several
 minutes and slowed our own progress down alot on the road in order to get a
 betttter look-I was sayingdo you think we are seeing a UFO here,or is this
 something explainable We felt curious,but calm,not frightened.Tried to disceern
 if it was an old bi-plane,because of that rectangular appearance-but this thing
 was large,and truly hovering.Just when I told Bob to pull over so I could find
 my binoculars beneath the front seat,the thing shot off and out of view,toward
 the NE,gone in an instant-we both mentioned the feeling that it somehowknewwe
 were trying to get a closer look,because of how it dissapeared immediately upon
 my reaching for binoculars.It was gone,and we drove the rest of the way homeits
 a 14 mile trip from ely to babbitt-this happened about 8 mi.out of elyfeeling
 calm and even tired,didnt talk much.My 18 yr old daughter then reported seeing
 something very similar several days later,to me,which made me wonder all the
 more just what was this bright,reflective and hovering object-from what we
 could tell it must have easily been about the size of two 747s laid end to end.

Bright light formation moving at high rate of speed with no noise

I had just laid down and was looking out our window, I saw a bright 
white light with four smaller red lights forming a diamond shape 
around it. Distance was about 1/2 mile heading north at a high rate 
of speed. I see commercial jets flying over every day and it was 
moving alot faster than I have ever seen anything else move except 
for military aircraft. The light was very large which made me think 
it was close. I could hear sounds of of crickets outside but this 
object emmitted no noise, NONE!!!! I told my wife to look and she 
commented on how fast it was moving. She thought it was probably a 
military jet. I said it's not making any noise? I used to be an 
aircraft mechanic and my wifes father is an aircraft mechanic. We 
both have spent our lives around airports and aircraft. Neither of 
us could explain this as something we recognized. I just wonder if 
anyone else saw this? 


Sighting Date/Time: July 4th, 2003 around 12:00 - 12:10 am
Sighting Location: Above my neighborhood
Sighting Description: I was laying in my pool watching the stars and from the southern 
horizon what appeared to be a jetliner was flying north out over Minneapolis. I spotted 
1 bright lights which where spaced like a DC-9 or MD88 at about 3-4,000 ft. Their aircraft 
started heading north and appeared to be turning east to fly over my house and suddenly 
the lights changed to a bluish white and then started to rise almost straight upwards 
and actually made it to the orbit in which sattelites travel in a matter of 4-5 seconds. Then 
it dimmed as it rose up into space and was not longer visible. This was the first UFO 
sighting since I moved to Minnesota in 1992.

In Cincinnatti Ohio I had sighted approximately 40 - 50 UFO's approximately 55 miles 
northeast of the city in a 3 month period back in the summer of 92', however as a child in 
cinci my family watched a UFO in daylight hover over our trees in the front yard for approx.
1 - 2 minutes at roughly 7:00 pm back in 1966 on a summer evening. I also lived in Boston 
Massachusettes from 1972- 1987 and saw 3 UFO's while living there.

Duration:30 Min
Black, unlit, triangular, silent, stationary, object hovering at high altitude, July 2003 
in Willmar Minnesota USA.

While attending the Sonshine festival Willmar Minnesota as sundown was 
approaching my teenaged daughter noticed a black object flyinging in a stationary 
(hovering) position directly over the concert. I noticed it too and since we were at 
a concert I had a monocular. I used it to look closer and saw a totally black 
triangular object that appeared to be at least a thousand feet or more above 
ground. My daughter, her sister and my wife each eventually looked at the object 
through the monocular. My wife who is a pilot insists that it was not like any flying 
object she has ever seen. Each of us took turns the next day drawing a picture 
of what we saw. Without any help from each other we all drew the same item. 
There were no lights (on the object) and no reflection from the sun. The object 
eventually became impossible to see as the sun went down. It made no noise.



      "The St. Louis County (Minnesota) Sheriff's
Department says a large fiery object--seen by residents of
Aurora, Babbitt and Ely at 5:24 p.m. Thursday," July 17,
2003--was most likely a meteor."
      "The Sheriff's Department took several calls late

I was outside watching the stars, lying on the hood of my dad
92s car in the driveway.  I was talking to a friend on the phone at the time.  I
saw a satellite traveling northward across the sky.  Later, I thought I was
another satellite.  This observation was reached by the luminosity of the object
and it rate and direction of its travel.  The object appeared as one bright,
whiteyellow ball of light.  Having lived under busy commercial air routes for my
entire life, and being an amateur aircraft expert, I readily identified the
object as not being commercial air traffic.  The object was traveling in an
Eastern direction, coming from the West.  Suddenly the object stopped.  It
started to move again, but on a different course.  The object was soon almost
directly overhead.   As the object was overhead, it rapidly flew in circles,
zigzag patterns, and hovered.  During the aerobatics, I noticed that the object
had a hazy halo surrounding it and it left a short, hazy trail behind it as it
maneuvered.  After a few minutes of said displays, the object started moving
rapidly north.  Suddenly reversing directions, the object began traveling
southward.  It was at this time that I noticed the object was not one white
light, but three distinct lights composing one object, or very tight formation. 
The lights were colored green, red, and white.  These are the colors used on
commercial aircraft, but the did not appear in the correct configuration to be
such an aircraft.  As the object sped southward toward the horizon, it stopped
briefly.  At this time, the object split into three different white lights in a
triangle formation.  As soon as the object had completed this transformation, it
disappeared at incredible speed to the Southeast.  From the high altitude and
speed the object was traveling, I knew that it was not a helicopter or
commercial airplane.  By the aerobatics that I saw, I also knew that it was not
a fighter jet, or either of the previously mentioned types of aircraft.  I am
confident in this conclusion because I have been an aviation enthusiast for most
of my life.  I have observed all type of aircraft, military and civilian.  I
have lived under major air routes for my entire life and I consider myself a
gifted aircraft spotter.

Shape: Oval
Duration:5-7 seconds
Dark grey oval seen from an aircraft - On July 27th, 2003 I was flying my Cessna 
P-210 from the Denver area enroute to Oshkosh, WI to attend the annual 
Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture convention, a week-long gathering 
of aircraft builders and aviation enthusiasts from around the country and the world.  
I have been a private pilot for nearly 40 years and have flown over most of the 
western half of the United States. My 16 year old son was my sole passenger in 
the right front seat.  We had stopped in Mankato, MN to refuel and have a snack.  
Departing Mankato airport approximately 2:15 pm on a heading of 100 degrees, we 
climbed through a layer of widely scattered cumulus clouds with bases at about 
3,500 feet and tops between 4,500 and 5,000 feet. We leveled off at 7,500 feet with 
good visibility and the scattered clouds below us.  About twenty minutes into the 
flight we were passing through the area north of Austin, MN and south of Rochester, 
heading toward La Crosse, WI.  Suddenly the my son blurted out What the hell is 
that?' as he looked out the window to his right toward the south. I said Where? and 
he pointed off to the south and somewhat below our altitude.  I spotted an object 
slightly higher than the level of the cloud bases and 3 to 4 miles off our right wing.  
Because of our speed at 170 knots (~195mph) and the intervening scattered clouds 
I only had a glimpse of 5 seconds or so after I spotted it before it began to be hidden 
by the passing clouds. My first impression was I was looking at the back end of a 
blimp or a WWII barrage balloon.  The object was a medium dark grey, oval shaped 
but a vertical oval.  There were no vertical or horizontal stabilizing fins on it, however 
it did have two areas on the lower sides of the oval that were slightly bulbous and 
colored bright orange.  There was no apparent movement, however with our speed 
it could have been moving slowly and not obvious to us. It was very puzzling since 
the area is very rural farming country and we were not near any cities or towns.  I 
thought at first it was a blimp, however a blimp would probably not be traveling within 
the clouds at nearly 4,000 feet since there was plenty of clear air below.  My next 
thought was that the object might be an Aerostat balloon the Customs Service uses 
along the Mexican border to spot incoming drug running aircraft, but this is not near 
the border and I believe those are typically tethered 10,000 feet above the ground.  
The only other thought was a large balloon to provide a high antenna for a radio or 
TV signal, but here again it was out in the middle of nowhere and was not marked 
on the flight chart. Since we were trying to get to Oshkosh by 3:30 pm to in order 
to land prior a flight of over 100 incoming Beech Bonanzas, I did not deviate to 
investigate. I am very familiar with almost all aircraft and have seen the Goodyear 
blimp and other advertising blimps many times both from the ground and in the air 
and this did not appear to be one of those.  On every flight I have to watch for other 
aircraft and am used to spotting and identifying them as traffic, yet to this day I have 
no idea what it was my son and I saw.

A family of three witness two quck flashes, then a VERY fast, dramatic fireball streak 
west in the night sky.

Telephoned Report: A man, his wife, and their daughter were driving to the east on 
Highway 5, and were approximately 15 miles to the east of St. Paul, MN.

Suddenly, all three witnessed observed a momentary bright flash in the northern sky, 
approximately 60 degrees to the left of the centerline of their vehicle, and above the 
tops of the trees to their left, maybe 30 degrees above the horizontal plane.

Approximately two seconds after the first flash, with their attention focused on the 
area of the sky where it had just occurred, they witnessed a second, similar flash. At 
almost the exact instant that they witnessed the second flash, they also observed a 
large fireball streak from east to west in the same area of the sky where they had 
just observed the two flashes. It was a very dramatic flash, and the fireball was 
moving VERY fast, according to the father's account of the incident.

Star like object in the night sky looked like it was trying to avoid a falling star?
I was out on my balcony having a cigarette and looked up into the sky just to get 
a feel for the weather and whether or not it was going to rain. I looked over to the 
N/NW and saw a bright starlike object. I saw a falling star off to the right of the 
object and noticed that the object had made a swooping motion as if to avoid the 
falling star. It then continued to keep it's position in the sky where I had first 
witnessed it, yet constantly in motion. I began to think that I was perhaps imagining 
things so I went to get my wife who was already in bed asleep. She came out on 
the balcony and watched this phenomenon along with me. It continued to make 
swooping and other types of motion that I can say without a doubt was not the kind 
of motion you would expect at that altitude to be an aircraft of any kind. As we 
watched the object I and my wife witnessed multiple falling stars as well as motions 
from the object that simply cannot be explained as motion from either aircraft or 
satellite.  ((NUFORC Note: We suspect that a celestial body would be the first 
possibility that would have to be ruled out. PD))



NEAR THE IOWA BORDER - On August 5, 2003, at 5:08 AM, we 
woke up and had no water. The circuit breaker was OK, so it had
to be something going on in the well house. I left the house at 5:00 
AM, driving west on a gravel road lined with cornfields in heavy 
rain. The cloud ceiling was about 9,000 feet, with a temperature 
of 62 degrees. As I rounded a curve I saw two red lights in 
between a band of white light. I got a little closer to these 
lights and decided to turn on my high beams to see better. 
Immediately, the white light in between the two red lights went 
off, and the two red lights started to move at a faster speed 
over the next hill. I could make out two red lights at about 25 
feet altitude moving west parallel to the road! This placed the 
lights ten feet above the electric wires. I saw an occasional 
beam of white light come from the craft directed at farmhouses 
as it passed. The red lights then went over the hill and I sped 
up to see and one of the red lights zoom off to the west. The 
other red light now 65 feet high stopped dead. 

The red light then turned on three banks of white and red lights 
with six lights in the top row, eight lights in the middle row 
and six lights in the bottom row. The UFO was above a farmhouse 
and moved 300 feet to the north and stopped. The object turned a 
pale shade of lime and I could make out the distinct shape of a 
black saucer with some sort of "stem." The saucer turned on a 
multitude of lights with lime green beams that lit up the grove 
of the farmhouse. You could see the black of night in between 
the shafts and it lit up the whole grove. I parked and watched 
this display 1/8 of a mile away from it. To the west, I saw the 
night sky light up from saucer #2. I watched for a couple of 
minutes, and a few other cars slowed down, but did not stop. I 
then turned south and headed for work with saucer #1 still 
blazing light lime green while saucer #2 was throbbing with 
orange light. 

Later, I left work to get parts to fix the well. The passing 
saucers, who could have been pinching electricity, probably 
fried the solid state-switching unit in my well. When I came 
back, my wife said, "She had heard a noise similar to a gunshot 
and the electricity had gone out." The local electrical provider 
came out and found a problem with a transformer and had to 
replace a section of underground cable on the road where I saw 
the two saucers. E-mail report.

i heard a thumping noise from outside. i went to my daughters bedroom to look out her 
window because she has a good veiw from there. i seen lights reflected on my neighbors 
window. i went outside to get a closer look and i noticed three lights above my neighbors 
house just above the trees approximately 50" or so.the lights were 2 white lights and 1 
red light each the same size and in a row, they cast no light on the ground or trees. there 
were no other lights, no flashing lights. i thought it was a helicopter but it was like a black 
mass and there was a dull thumping noise. i live next to an airport, which is down the 
bluffs from where i live, i hear helicopters and airplanes quit often and this was different. 
the windows should have rattled, they didn't, that close the thing should have woken the 
neighbors, no one else heard it. i looked at it for a good 2 to 3 minutes. i decided to go 
back inside and the lights left as soon as i walked away.this has clearly been in my 
memory since then.i don't recall any missing time or anything else unusual, just that i 
seen these lights and heard a thumping noise from something hovering above the

Two star like objects accelerate and fade one after the other.

I was standing outside in my backyard, which faces east, and was watching the 
sky as I usually do this time of evening. I noticed a very bright object about the size 
of the brightest star, which at first, was moving at an almost imperceptible speed. 
It was in the east, southeast part of the sky, at an angle of about 30 degrees. It 
accelerated north from its position, but always moving slower than a satelite, and 
faded out at about 5 degrees from its original position. I searched for the object for 
about 4 seconds when I noticed another object of the same magnitude a few degrees 
southwest of the first. It moved the same direction and speed as the first, and it also 
faded in the same manner and area as the first. Again, both objects seemed not to 
be moving at first, but accelerated about 5 degrees from their original positions and 
faded. Most satelites I watch travel well past 90 degrees at this time in the evening, 
and I've never seen 2 satelites travel this close to each other.
((NUFORC Note: We observe that the planet, Mars, would be in the area of the sky 
that the witness indicates at the time of the sighting, and it would be very prominent. 
It does not move perceptibly. We do not know what the witness observed. PD))

Short Description of UFO Event:  star-like light in night sky came on,
grow in intensity, then dimmed out completely, followed by very faint
meteor streak from the north to where light dimmed out.

Detailed Description of the UFO Event: 	At about 10'clock on the evening
of 13 August 2003, I went outside on the back deck to have a smoke
before I went to bed. I gazed up at the night sky to see how many planes
and satellites I could see and count before I retired to bed. I just
happened to look at an area of the southwestern night sky that was
almost devoid of stars when a star-like light suddenly appeared from out
of the blackness, grew with the intensity of an automobile's headlamps
on high-beam at about a quarter mile away, then faded back out to
nothingness without moving. It was as if the "light" was being operated
by a "dimmer-switch", and lasted only 5 seconds or so from dim "on" to
dim "off", bright white-white in color. The light got so bright that I
remember I shielded my eyes and recoiled back thinking the light was
shinning at me or coming right at me, much to my embarrassment later.
Then, approximately 3 seconds later, I observed a very faint meteor
streaking out of the northern sky and disappearing in the area of the
southwestern sky , midway up, where the light had just disappeared. I
put my binoculars on the spot where the light disappeared and saw
nothing but blackness. At first I thought I had just witnessed a
supernova, but thought otherwise because the event only lasted afew
seconds. Then I got this feeling that maybe this "light" was not that
far away, possibly in orbit or closer, and that the "meteor" was some
kind of defense system, and the hair on the back of my neck stood up.
Afterwards, I went inside and told both my mother and my brother what I
had just witnessed outside. The next day at work I heard on the radio
that the eastern US was experiencing a massive power outage and I
couldn't help but wonder if what I saw the previous night had anything
to do with it. Since that event, I've been somewhat hesitant to continue
looking at the night sky because I cannot satisfactorily explain to
myself what the heck it was that I witnessed that night.

Apparent Size: 	Starlike,Aspirin
Prominent Colors: 	White: Surface   
Exterior Light Characteristics: 	Brightened

Description: 	What I saw was a star-like point of light suddenly appear
in the night sky, grow bright white in intensity and size, then dim back
out to nothingness.

Description: 	I just want to state that I shielded my eyes due to the
light's brightness, and that I recoiled back out of fear that the light
was coming right at me.

I saw a very bright red cirucular shaped object travel jerk through the sky

While going outside to take a look at mars on August 28th, 2003 I watched the sky 
for about 10 minutes when I saw a circular red ball travel across the sky. It was not 
very high above the ground and I was able to watch it for about 1 and a 1/2 minutes. 
The night was so clear and still you could hear a mouse in the woods at 100 yards 
away. The milky way was as bright as it gets. This object made NO sound and kinda 
jerked as it moved in a straight path heading North East. The object was brighter than 
anything in the sky by far & had a red glow with a very different look that I had never 
seen before. Its been 5 days now and I felt I should file a repost to see if anyone else 
had seen the same thing. I am 41 years old and have had my own contracting 
business for over 18 years. I have been married for 15 years with 2 children.


Vining, Minnesota A Huge V Shaped Craft
Date:  August 30, 2003

Number of witnesses: 1
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: V shaped.

Full Description of event/sighting: It was labor day week-end 2003. It was Saturday 
night August 30, 2003. I had come home from work and decided to view Mars, since 
it was so close to earth at this time. I had the binoculars to my face when all of a 
sudden there was another light in my view. I took the binoculars away from my eyes 
and couldn't believe what I saw. This thing was huge ( at least as big as a foot-ball 
field or possibly a mile long. It did not make any noise that I could hear. It had five 
large red lights and three white lights on it. The three white lights together where 
about the size of one red light. The red lights where along the sides of this thing. 
Evenly spaced apart. They where not flashing at all, just stayed duller then any 
plane I've ever seen. The way it moved, it just glided off to the east. You could 
have put many planes in this thing. I read what a man from McGregor had wrote, 
stating he thought it started near him. I live in Vining, that is half ways between 
Fergus Falls and Wadena. Also I have found a person in Sisseton S.D. had seen 
it to. All in a matter of a few minutes or perhaps an hour. Also the three white 
lights where in the nose of this thing.

A large V shaped object in the night sky.
I SEEN A v shaped object in the south eastern sky. It was 11:15 pm. It was very 
large. About the size of a football field or larger. Itwas moving very slowly. It made 
no sound. It had three red lights on one side and two on the other. It had a cluster of 
white lights in the nose. With my binoculars I could tell that the cluster was three 
white lights. These three white lights toghter were about the same size as one red 
light. These lights were not flashing like plane lights do. The one red light that was 
missing was bettween the two red lights on one side. It glided off to the east, till I 
could'nt see it any more. I seen it for about 3 minutes. All the lights moved together 
as if it was one huge object.

Huge, stealth like craft passses over us with red and white lights, only to be followed 
by squadrons of fighters in its path

Craft sounded like a slow flying jet. We could hear it coming before we saw it. It was 
around midnight so it was dark and all you could see was the lights. There were four 
white lights on the rear of the craft in the shape of a diamond and two red lights on 
each wing, Maybe one on the end of the wing and one in the middle of the wings. 
None of the lights were blinking like all the other aircraft in the sky today. The lights 
on the wings were angled back so you could tell that the wings were swepted back 
like a jet. It reminded me of a Stealth only in a much much larger scale. At first I 
thought it was more than one plane flying in formation but the lights would'nt have 
made any sense, because there would have been only one plane with the four white 
lights on the back of it and four other planes flying with only one red light. So it came 
to our conclusion that it could only be one plane. Antway it continued across the lake 
and at that point we could see two other planes coming across the sky at a very fast 
rate of speed to meet up with it and fly almost like escorting it till it was out of our sight. 
About twenty minutes later a squadron of planes flew over us in the same exact spot 
and the same direction almost like they were trying to duplicate what the other had 
just done. Only the precision flying wasn't there, and the lights were blinking on these 
planes. They had red and white lights on them too. Only each plane had red and white 
lights on them. After a while another squadron of them flew the same way and a little 
while another squadron. All of these planes had both red and white lights blinking on 
them. Thats why I think that the first one we saw was one big craft.

Large V shaped aircfaft slowly flying overhead while other planes scramble to catch up.

The craft in question came out from behind the tree line above and out in front of us 
heading NNE. If I was to hold my fingers out at arms length and about 2 1/2 inches 
apart, that would be about the size it appeared in the sky. The sound was a low 
rumble like you would hear from a jet liner going over, except that the sound was 
coming directly from the source, as opposed to trailing the aircraft, which makes me 
think that it wasn’t very high in the sky, but yet I would estimate it at between one and 
two miles. It turned to the east and continued on until it was out of sight. As far as the 
shape, I would say it was like a B2 bomber but would have had to have been bigger. 
A little before we saw this my brother and nephew had noticed a couple smaller aircraft 
flying around to the north of the lake. As the big one turned to head east, the two 
screamed across the sky and met up with it a ways out. We could not hear the smaller 
planes so they must have been pretty high up. On a normal night we may only see 
one to four planes on average, and knowing how slow they move across the sky I 
thought that the two planes must be jet fighters because they crossed the sky quickly. 
Within an hour later 2 smaller planes came back from the east and we watched them 
thinking that it may be the same two that had caught up and escorted the big one. They 
had made a couple of turns, which again made me think that they were not commercial 
planes ( again, what we normally see up there are commercial planes that fly high over 
head in a perfectly straight line.) Anyway then we heard planes overhead and saw four 
planes flying in "V" formation and trying to follow the same route as the big craft flew. 
The formation looked like they were trying to make it look like it was what we saw earlier, 
but was obviously not. After a while and seeing a few more planes jetting around the 
sky I went to bed, but was told that everyone that stayed up saw one more display of 
the "V" formation a little later.

A few key points to myself are.
1) We normally will only see one to three planes per night. We sit out at the campfire 
every weekend looking up at the stars and counting satellites, so it’s not like we don’t 
look up. On this night we saw in excess of 20 planes, all after 11:45 p.m.
2) The big craft appeared to be flying too slowly for something that big.
3) The fighters that screamed across the sky to intercept or escort.

A couple of questions.
1) What was this large craft? 
2) Would the airforce admit to flying "training exercises" or anything else? 
3) Is it possible that this large craft was below radar and the other planes were waiting 
for it to show itself, and we saw it as it was going up and the two smaller craft streaked 
toward it when they picked it up again?

Lastly I would like to mention one thing that may have nothing to do with this but may 
be worth mentioning. About an hour earlier than the sighting of the big craft, we heard 
loud commotion back in the woods maybe a mile or more that sounded like many 
coyote’s or wolves howling or fighting. This went on and off for about a half an hour 
or so and ended shortly before seeing the big craft. These sounds were coming 
directly in the area of where we saw the craft come from. Probably just a coincidence
((NUFORC Note: The date of the sighting was August 30. We have amended the 
data above. PD))

Posted: 9/4/2003
Location: McGregor, MN
Shape: Triangle
At 11:55 pm on August 30th, ten people who were gathered around a campfire in 
northern Minnesota witnessed a triangular shaped craft that was subsequently 
chased by multiple military aircraft. The craft's 'wingspread' was an apparent two 
inches at arm's length. It had four white lights in a diamond shape at the front, an 
apparent one quarter inch in size at arm's length, and two solid red lights on each 
of the apparent leading edges. None of the lights blinked and all were very bright. 
We heard the craft coming over the trees at the water's edge before we saw it, so 
it was apparently flying very slowly. All were in awe upon seeing it, as it was flying 
much too slowly to be a 'standard' aircraft, the lights were very bright and distinct, 
and yet it was apparently high the sky. The sound it made was that of a very high 
flying commercial jet. It was flying west to east, directly toward Duluth, Mn.

Prior to seeing this craft, two of the witnesses had been watching two apparent 
military aircraft in the distance north of the lake, flying east. After the craft passed 
overhead, these two military craft were seen flying very fast southeast to intercept 
the unindentified craft. No sound was heard from the military craft, which suggests 
they were at high altitude, and one of the witnesses, formerly in the military, stated
that they were flying above mach speed. They covered ground VERY quickly. They 
then intercepted the unidentified craft several miles away and then flew next to it, 
while two more military aircraft appeared from the south and also flanked the craft, 
as it disappeared into the distance. All of the military craft were much smaller than 
the object, which dwarfed them. From this, it was estimated that the size of the 
object was approximately one thousand feet from wing tip to wing tip.

Thirty minutes later, at 12:30am, several military craft were seen coming from the 
east, circled the area, and then joined with a group of aircraft following the exact path 
of the first object, and attempting to fly in the same triangular pattern, apparently in 
a attempt to show that the first object was only a military excercise.

Again at 1:34am, two more military aircraft circled the area, this time close enough 
that through a binoculars they could be identified as fighter jets (the lights on these 
aircraft made structure visible), and again they joined with a formation of other 
aircraft flying the exact path of the original object, and in a triagle formation.

All witnesses thought this situation had an element of high strangeness about it. In 
one hour and thirty five minutes, twenty six aircraft were observed, including the 
original object. It is believed that twenty five of the aircraft were 'normal' military craft. 
The witnesses have been in this area during the summer for many, many years, 
and have never seen this number of aircraft, either during the day or at night, and 
hardly ever have seen military aircraft of any kind flying overhead. We are not on a 
normal commercial route and seldom see commercial craft overhead. It could be 
that the first two military craft flew in from Minot Air Force base in Minot North Dakota, 
although this is only speculation.

We were able to video tape portions of the encounter, although we did not get the 
object on tape as it first went overhead, as we needed to send someone through 
the dark and into the cabin to retrieve the camera, thus the quality of the video is 
not very good.

This was the first sighting of any kind for the vast majority of the witnesses. I'm the 
only person who has ever seen a UFO, having made a report to MUFON several 
years ago. Only one of the witnesses had been drinking alcohol, and that only beer.

3 seperate sighting of a series of 6 red lights taking on a wing formation, slow 
moving, engine sound (but not jet engine)

This occurred at our propery outside of Brainerd, MN. At 11:30pm, 12:25am and 
1:30am. There were six red lights in a wing pattern, but no tail lights, it was moving 
fairly slowly and looked quite large, I heard a definite engine sound, but did not 
sound like a typical jet aircraft. There is no airfield large enough to land such a 
large craft (I did not make out an actual shape or craft, just the lights, but they 
spanned a large area). The same (or different) lights, traveled over the same 
path on the 3 seperate times indicated above - I tried to take pictures the second 
time, I have not yet developed the film. The exact location was at the Mississippi 
River, at Riverton, MN (at the location of Rabbit lake). I did not call the hotline since 
it may have been planes (but it must have been a huge plane and I don't know 
where such a plane would land) and I don't know how to check with the local 
airports to see if it was in fact a plane (somebody would have been tracking it, I 
assume). We have been going to this piece of property for 3 years and I have 
never seen similar air traffic- which is why I thought I would report it.

A chain of lights moving slowly in the eastern sky

While viewing the night sky/Mars....we observed a chain of lights in the eastern sky 
slowly move north and then head slowly east. The chain of lights consisted of 3 red 
lights then a concentration of about 4 white lights in the center followed by an 
additional 3 red lights. All the lights were non-blinking. There were no sounds heard. 
There were no quick movements. All action was slow and methodical.

Very large, slow moving, wing shaped craft was chased by 3 F15's. 4 white 
lights, 4 red lights.

As I was fixing my rootbeer float, my dad came storming in to the cabin yelling 
of a UFO. I immediately ran out to see what everybody was looking at. I looked 
up and saw this large slow moving craft that made a low rumbling sound, like a 
passenger jet at 30,000 feet. The craft had a flying wing appearance with 4 red 
lights on the trailing edges, 2 on each side spaced evenly across its wingspan. 
4 white lights in a diamond pattern were focused near the center and were 
equally as bright. It was flying slow enough and/or low enough that the sound 
was not delayed but seemed to emanate directly from the craft. Holding my 
hand out above me, the craft was about 2 inches wide in the sky and was 
moving at a rate of 1 inch per every 2 seconds, and seemed to be accelerating. 
After about 30 seconds of watching it move in a straight line across the sky, 2 
aircraft which appeared to be F15's were moving in on its location at very high 
velocity. Once both reached the craft one F15 followed off the crafts left wing, 
and another directly behind it. Both of these F15's had noticeable wing tip lights 
and a center flashing light, standard to military aircraft. In the distant we could 
still hear the low rumble of the craft yet no sound from screaming the F15's, 
which suggests they were too far away too hear, which would also imply the 
scale of this craft was enormous. After another minute or so, we could still see 
the flashing lights of the following F15’s in the distant, while another F15 flew 
overhead at very high velocity toward the craft in the distant. From then on we 
saw an occasional pair of F15’s which looked to be in a search pattern across
the sky. Not more than a half hour later 4 military aircraft flew over head in a 
formation that looked similar to the craft that flew over, yet only a single white 
light in the center, one red light to the right, and 2 red lights way too far off to the 
left. All had flashing lights. They looked as though they were trying to “copy” the 
lights of the first craft. A! lthough, it was obvious these were F15’s or similar 
because they were traveling at much higher velocity and the delay of sound was 
very long. Within a time span of an hour, 2 more F15’s had circled around and 
met up with yet another formation of five F-15’s that closer matched the look of 
the first craft, yet even this time it was obvious again that these were more F15’s 
in a V-formation at high altitude, high velocity, and long delay of sound. ((NUFORC

I was on a farm in northern minnesota and just happened to glance up at the sky, I 
saw the big dipper and noticed three star sized lights moving past the tail of the big 
dipper. they were in formation with each other moving very fast and flawlessly 
stayed the same distance from each other, they did move apart and back close. 
they went from one end of the big dipper all the way to the southern horizon then 
looped back to the north,then continued to "swim throught" the sky like fish in a pond 
before dispering over the western horizon. I have been a star gazer my whole life 
and ive seen many satelites and shooting stars and many airplanes fly across the 
night sky,I worked for a major airline for five years so I am very familar with planes 
and how fast they move across the sky and these lights were not any airplane i 
know of, In fact they seemed to move three to four times as fast as a plane crusing 
at 40,000 feet. It couldnt have been more than five minutes, and they crossed the 
entire sky twice. The lights appeared to be the same size as an average star and 
if I had to guess at the elevation I would say they were as high as our satelites. 
there were no sounds emmiting from them, and if a jet flys over here I always 
here them. ((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. PD))

Three faint blue triangles high in the sky.

I'm amazed. I hope someone else saw some of this too. I arrived home at 
approx. 3:15 in the morning on sept. 4. as I was walking toward the house from 
the back alley/driveway I noticed what appeared to be a sattelite moving slowly 
from southeast to northwest. I didn't think much of it, other than it was quite 
bright, and seemed a bit low in the sky. It also was a tiny bit orange-ish in color 
which I thought was odd, but it was partly cloudy so I thought it may be just 
something to do with the atmosphere. Then I noticed the strange part. Moving 
at the same speed, and in the same direction, were three faint blue triangles of 
lights, all about a hands legnth(to the eye) apart from each other. They were 
each about the size of my thumb across, which seems quite large for how high 
they appeared to be. I immediately ran in the house and grabbed my video camera. 
I came back out to film the objects(which were moving very slow) but the darkness 
of the sky, and the lightness of the city made it impossible to see anything on my 
viewfinder, so I was unable to get any footage. The objects slowly moved out of 
veiw to the northeast. I also saw probably five to ten shooting stars, but I doubt 
if they were related in any way.


Big Round Lake North Of McGregor Minnesota Delta Shaped Craft
Date: September 2003
Time: 10:30 p.m.
Number of witnesses: 13
Number of objects: 1
Shape of objects: Delta
Full Description of event/sighting: Brian, I'm 50 years old and live in a rural area 
2.5 hours north of the Twin Cities and 60 miles west of Duluth. Labor Day 
weekend in 2003, thirteen of us were sitting around our nightly campfire on the 
beach, talking and watching for satellites, as we are want to do. I heard what 
sounded like a high-flying airliner coming from the southwest, over my shoulder. 
My older brother suddenly stood up and said in a very concerned voice, "Mike, 
what the heck is that?". I looked up and saw a huge, black delta-shape coming 
right over the trees, directly over our heads. Everyone became very agitated. It 
was three inches wide at arms length and sported five very large and very bright 
red lights that were constantly on, spaced evenly across the leading edge. It had 
none of the 'normal' marking lights of an 'regular' aircraft. We're not used to seeing 
many aircraft in this area, especially after dark. Never this low to the ground.

It passed between us and at least two stars, and as the stars were completely 
covered, I know the craft had solid structure. It was flying much too slow for any 
airplane. I've seen the B2 bomber and this was similar in body shape, but again, 
the B2 would have fallen out of the sky at the speed this thing was moving.
Directly over our heads it made a very sharp 90 degree turn toward the east. This 
turn would not have been possible by any aircraft I know of, except for a helicopter. 
It didn't bank in the turn, just smoothly went through a 90 degree radius. I've never 
seen anything like it. It then began to rapidly pick up speed as it moved out across 
the lake and headed directly east, toward Duluth. Suddenly, from across the lake, 
came two fighter jets, impossible to misidentify, due to their unique sound and 
speed. One of the witnesses, my nephew, was stationed in Germany years ago, 
and he flatly stated that the jets were using afterburners. They obviously had been 
scrambled from Minot ND to chase this thing down. Boy, were they moving!

We subsequently observed a total of 26 (!) military aircraft that night, which is totally 
unbelievable for this rural area. Just to be sure, I got out my binoculars and identified
them as being fighters. They were flying so low that they were easy to see in the 
glasses when their lights would blink. Several of them came directly over our heads 
in two separate formations spaced one hour apart, as though trying to emulate the 
triangle itself (misdirection?). They didn't do a very good job of it, as they moved too 
fast and weren't in a tight enough formation. I reported this sighting to NUFORC and 
later read accounts there from two separate witnesses 60 miles west of us, in 
Brainerd and Nisswa, that were very similar to our own. The sightings there were 
approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes prior to our own.

Subsequently, my younger brother contacted the Duluth News Tribune and managed 
to convince a writer there to contact both the Air National Guard in Duluth and Minot 
Air Force Base. He was told there were NO EXERCISES on the night in question. He 
wasn't told it was classified information, or that something was going on, or that they 
didn't want to, or couldn't, comment. He was told nothing was in the air that night! The 
writer was intrigued by this and stated so to my brother. The Duluth News Tribune 
also received calls from over 50 people in the Duluth-Superior area of similar sightings. 
The newspaper actually ran a small article detailing what had happened, and even 
used my brother's name in the article! He wasn't thrilled about that, but sometimes 
you have to suck it up.

One other very strange thing that happened the same night, about thirty minutes 
before the sighting, was that we heard what sounded like wolves or coyotes out in 
the woods, perhaps a quarter of a mile away. We have never heard this before or 
since, and we've been in the area for over fifty years. We later speculated that perhaps 
the UFO had landed in the woods, although we have no way of knowing whether this 
is true. When it came over our heads, it was so low, and flying so slowly, that you 
could certainly make a case for it having been down on, or near, the ground. Was 
this UFO actually a 'new' terrestrial aircraft, or something else? It certainly was not a 
B1 or B2, a helicopter, or a dirigible. This UFO was sighted along a 120 mile line from 
Brainerd to beyond Duluth, by many witnesses in many different situations. The 
sighting was accompanied by many military aircraft that were "not in the air" according 
to official sources. The sighting was subsequently researched by a reputable reporter 
for a good-sized newspaper and an article was published. All told, this was a very 
strange experience for us all, and I wish I could find someone who was interested in 
looking into this sighting more thoroughly. My wife was very afraid for several months 
following this, and still does not care to talk about it. The subject of 'our UFO' comes 
up often in conversations and we all still marvel at the uniqueness, and the power, of 
it. As I write this I get 'fresh' Goosebumps! Please feel free to publish this on your 
website, as I welcome feedback from any interested party.
Thank you to the witness for the report.

Cromwell, Minnesota.... Deer Hunting Opening Day....Carlton County Movings Lights
On the Opening Day of Deer Hunting of fall 2003 in Minnesota. I got up at 5:00 and 
headed out to my deer stand with my .308. I got up ito my deer stand which was in 
a woody, hilly area and noticed a star looking figure that was moving around in a 
busy movement. I just didn't what the heck it was, so I looked up at it with my high 
powered scope and it basicly looked like a star. Later, another star light popped up 
and then the two went slowly away from me and dissapeared just as the light day 
was starting to appear. I told my dad this later in the day and he thought that it was
wierd. I know this for sure, for those last two weeks of hunting I watched the skies 
and saw many more sightings of the same kind, and I have been a little scared since 
the incidents. I would really like to know what these occurences are.

Twilight Lights in Northfield, MN

This is the discription I wrote about 5-10 minutes after the sighting: "On Monday, 
September 22, 2003 at 7PM I observed a UFO while on my road. It was a white 
light, though it may have flickered red, travelling in a straight line at a downward 
angle of 10°. I observed it for approximately 2-3 seconds, at which time it faded 

At 7:18 the same day I observed two more. The first was heading straight down 
toward the horizon, and I observed it for several minutes. It was similar in 
appearence as the one I sighted earlier, except that it did not fade out and 
definitely flickered beween white, green and red. The second I saw for approx.
3 seconds, and was similar to the earlier sighting except that it faded out, then 
faded in, travelling on the same trajectory before finally disappearing." My first 
instinct (when I saw the first object) was that it was a bit of space debris burning 
up in the atmosphere. But the two objects I observed later did not quite fit: 
the one object faded out then in, and the other changed only in it's color, and I 
only lost sight of it as it went beneath the horizon. These objects were little 
more then points of lights - nothing spectacular, but as I say, it was out of the 

(I object to the use of the word craft on this form - it should say object. To call it 
a craft is to make the assumption that it is a manned transport of some kind, 
instead of being regarded as an Unknown, which is what it is.)

we were standing outside work after having a cigarette and talking about looking

lights, just a reflecting or almost eluminated color of brown a golden brown the 
hight was from 1500 - 2200 ft above the ground. it went from the west to the east 
i saw it about in the middle of the sky and it only took a few seconds to race 
across the sky and disappear.the two other men who saw this with me are co-
workers one fell just short of graduating law school and the other just short of an 
automotive class. all of us good honest people have no clue what it really was 
we saw. we went throught the thought of a bird or plane or weather balloon but 
then we slowly eliminated those by simple reason. birds honk especially geese 
plus it never changed shape bird dont even hold together that tight and usually 
change shape as they fly. plane- no lights at night planes have to fly with lights 
and its size and shape outruled that idea let alone no noise and how fast it was, 
and the wind was coming from the east ruling out a weather balloon, i dont think 
it would fly against the wind at that speed.

Blue and Red ball of light, that just floated in the sky , TELEPATHY THEORY 

I saw two lights. Off to the right was a red round shape light, off to the left was 
a blue round shaped light about 1/2 apart. They both were about as high in the 
sky as your usuall water towers. The amazing event that occurd was that I 
wanted to see them in this area because it was a UFO hot-spot about 25-30 
years ago. In that time frame, my mom and other relatives saw craft and 
lights on differnt ocasions. Also there is a cattle farm right next to where I 
saw the crafts. The most idea I want to explain is that I mostly looked at the 
blue one, because It moved/floated to which ever direction I mentally told it to. 
It was actually kinda of friendly. They stayed there untill I left the area. My 
family knows I am not making this ((deleted)) up, because they all saw 
unexplained events at differnt times in the same area years ago.

very unusual lights which they witnessed, and took photos of on September 27, 2003. 
At 5:00 a.m. on that day  they noticed and filmed blue lights close to their home.
The witnesses watched the blue lights travel from the east and then stopped  near their 
home as seen in the photos below. The  lights stayed in the area for approximately 20 
minutes. I asked the folks if they knew which direction the lights went and they were 
both unsure. They may have looked away for a minute or two and then when they 
glanced back the lights were gone. Then on the same morning, two hours later, they  
saw  more some strange objects and took photos of them as well. I found the pictures 
to be very interesting and beautiful with the rainbow as a backdrop.
A number of objects can be seen very clearly in the pictures. The witnesses said the 
objects stayed in their area for approximately an hour, and told me this event was 
extraordinary. They watched them flying north and maneuver themselves as if they 
were lining up one after another. They also would change positions, spreading out, 
and coming back together once again. At one point the witness said they seemed to  
leap frog over one another.. It was a strange and exciting experience for the couple.
One of the witnesses said someone else must have surely seen this event as it lasted 
so long and was so very strange.
I would really like to thank the couple for sending me the pictures and report.

Oct., 2003 Reports


West Central -A couple was relaxing on October 3, 2003, when they 
noticed the sky turning a strange pink, so the husband got his camera 
and began to take pictures. A strange vertical cloud started near 
the bottom of a hill and seemed to be walking up the hill. It 
seemed to be 'body-like' in form and emitted some kind of 
'Mental energy.' There was an unusual line left in the sky. The 
'walking cloud' moved over the rise, and then zoomed off to the 
west. The sky returns to normal color. Thanks to Brian Vike,

The full moon came down & abducted us- we awoke 2 hrs later


Date reported: Friday, October 17th 2003
Reported by: Mr. Finnley Wren
Date of sighting: February 14th 1999
Sighting's location: east Duluth, Minnesota
Object's shape: Triangle
Object's altitude: 100 Ft.
Object's color: n/a
Description of the incident: While riding home, southbound on the Lester River 
Road, my friend and I noticed three bright white lights in a triangular formation (pointing 
upward) descending at a 45 degree angle behind the trees. We watched it sink beneath 
the level of the trees. It looked like a helicopter was landing about a half-mile down the 
road for us, except it was obviously not a helicopter or airplane. It was low and didn't 
make a sound. The lights didn't blink or change color. The weird part was, we got about 
a half a mile down the road, where the trees open up and you can see the countryside 
all over the area, and there was nothing to be seen anywhere. If an aircraft was in the 
sky, we would have seen it from where we were. We got out of the car and looked 
every direction. I remember it was stingingly cold out, and the moon was very full and 
bright, with a dim white halo around it. We drove up to Hawk Ridge to get a better view 
of the night sky over Duluth, but still nothing. We concluded that whatever it was it took 
off fast or landed somewhere out of view. We still talk about it when my friend comes 
back to town to visit. Still neither one of us can explain it.

A large black trianle shaped aircraft with three lights quietly and slowly 
hovering very low.

On my way home from work early Sunday morning I noticed some bright 
lights just above the trees. I thought it was for a ball field but I'd never seen 
them there before. As I got closer I realized they were too high up to be 
attached to the ground but they appeared to be stationary. I was only a few 
blocks from home and it was hard to tell if it was moving until I stopped for 
a stop sign. It was hovering slowly and very low. When I reached my 
driveway and turned my engine off I could hear a low hum. It was right above 
my backyard, big black triangle shaped with three lights I watched for a few 
more minutes as it slowly traveled north.

Bright pulsating multi-colored light turning into disk shape with circle of red lights.
A bright star like object - pulsating red, green & yellow. Sharing binoculars with 
husband, the object turned disk like and had a red circle of lights on top. The 
red lights pulsated in a circle. My husband saw the light move up and down but 
by the time I got outside, it was somewhat stationary in the western sky. The 
movement was not like an airplane. No noise. It was the strangest thing I have 
ever seen. It seemed to be pulsating with energy. We watched it fade into

Shape: Triangle
Duration:5-7 minutes
Saw a triangular shaped craft that emmitted a beam directly at us and then 
followed over the top of our vehicle for a short distance.

On Sunday, November 2, 2003 my husband, my fifteen year old daughter and 
myself were coming home from a housewarming party we had attended for a 
co-worker of mine who lives in St. Paul. We left her house that evening around 
5:15-5:30 PM and drove our vehicle heading north on HWY 61 from the eastside 
of St. Paul to our destination in Forest Lake. We had so much fun at the party 
that I turned off the radio in my SUV so we could talk all the way home about the 
good time we had. There was a slight chill in the air that night, so I had the heater 
on blowing out heat, but the skies over us were dark but very clear. As we 
approached Forest Lake on HWY 61 I was driving and my husband was in the 
passengers seat had reached over to turn off the fan for the heater. We just 
started to reach town and had driven almost 26 miles now and our vehicle was 
quite warm on the inside. The only sound was our discussion and the sound of 
the tires on the road. At this time my daughter had taken out her prizes she had 
won from playing games at the housewarming party. She won some nice jewlery 
and wanted my husband and I to look at it. I turned and took a quick coutesy 
glance because I was driving and my husband began to examine her prizes. We 
could see because we had now started to come into the out skirts of Forest Lake 
and there were street lights that some what lit up the inside of the vehicle. I 
turned my gaze back to the road and off into the distance and coming from the 
east towards the west I saw some blinking lights. At first I thought nothing of it, it 
must be a plane because we have a small air field on the south edge of town. But 
on further examination the lights seemed to be different somehow. They were 
different colors and seemed to be blinking faster than a plane would, almost in a 
sequence or pattern. This had captured my attention and I could not take my 
eyes off of it. I said to my husband and daughter, "look you guys, over there up in 
the sky,what is it?" My husband said, "where! ?" I said, "over to the right." "It is 
coming from over by the chain of lakes this way." I slowed my speed way down 
as I drove because we were approaching the south end of town. I had noticed 
the lights blinking in the sky as I just passed the first set of stoplights on HWY 61 
coming into Forest Lake. I said to my husband, "what is it?" He said, "ah,it's only 
a plane." But we all continued to watch it. As we headed up to the second set of 
stop lights I had notice the blinking lights became closer but still far enough away 
up in the sky for the shape to be unreckonizable. The lights no longer were 
moving from east to west, but were now hovering to the right of HWY 61 above 
the homes behind the businesses that line HWY 61. When we reached the stop 
light it was red and all three of us saw the lights stop blinking but they were still lit 
and the object quit hovering. It proceeded from east to west so that it was above 
HWY 61 and then all of a sudden went in reverse and backed up very quickly, 
almost like it was lining itself up for something. At this point my husband looked 
down to push the button to make the power window go down because I had said 
to him, look it just went backwards! He said, "I saw that!" That is why he wanted 
the window down so he could hear the sound that propellers make if a helicopter 
is overhead. I said to my husband,"that is no plane!" I asked him again, "what is 
it?" He said, it is a helicopter, but I do not hear any sound. He was busy pushing 
the button to make his window go all the way down, my daughter was putting her 
prizes away and I was looking straight ahead as we sat at the red light at the 
intersection of 11th and HWY 61. I was in the lefthand turn lane to go west on 
11th towards our home. As I pondered what this might be for that split second. 
All of a sudden this so called helicopter flashed a large beam of light down directly 
at us. It flashed me right in the face. I said to my husband and daughter in the 
back seat that object just flashed us. "WH! Y?" My husband who had his windown 
down by now said, "that is a search light, they must be looking for someone or 
something." I told him, no. This was different. It was a light like a camera flash but 
as bright as fireworks, but only aimed directly at us in a beam. My husband at this 
time stuck his head out of the window to hear for the sound of a helicopter. He 
said, "what the heck?" "I do not hear anything!" So my daughter had pushed the 
button to make her window go down and stuck her head out the window too and 
she could not hear anything either. But the object was too far up in the sky for us 
to make out the shape and form. We only seen lights and at this point they were 
no longer blinking. My husband noticed in the car next to us was a family looking 
at the same object in the sky. They were not in the turn lane like us, but heading 
north on 61 into town He said the father was on the drivers side and mother on 
the passesngers side in the frontseat. They were looking straight ahead as if 
frightened, but there were two teenage girls in the back and they were looking out 
their side windows up at the object and he thought one was rolling her window 
down and was sticking her head out to get a better look at this thing that just 
flashed us. At this point I said to my husband and daughter maybe it is one of 
those experimental government planes and they are taking it out for a spin and 
trying it out, but it bothered me that they flashed this light down right in our faces. 
Well, at this point the stoplight finally turned green,it is a long light. We could finally 
go and we thought we had seen the last of this object for good. Both my husband 
and my daughter still had their windows down trying to hear for some sound, any 
type of sound. There was none. As I made the turn they started to make a rukus 
about something. So I turned to look in the direction they were looking and what I 
saw out my husbands window was this object come from the sky where we 
could only see it as lights and it wisked ! its way down to tree level. "Oh, my 
God!" What is it? My husband stuck half of his body out of the rolled down 
window and my daughter stuck her head out the window and I peered through 
the front window upward driving very very slowly. What was now directly above 
us we could not believe our eyes! We were all seeing it very clearly. Looking 
upwards we could see the underneath of this object. What we seen was a large 
triangular craft. The top point of the triangle was in the front and pointing the same 
direction as the headlights on our SUV as I headed west on 11th Avneue. This tip 
had a light in the point, maybe a couple feet wide. The two other points forming 
the back (base of triangle) of the craft had also had the same lights in the tips. 
When it first hovered above us these lights were a light yellowish glow. Glow 
meaning the lights did not illuminate on us or the road beneath the craft. This 
triangular craft was an equal lateral triangle, all sides the same length. The craft 
hovered directly above us and followed us down the road a short distance. It was 
just above the tree tops as it followed us. The craft was as wide as the road from 
shoulder to shoulder and was approximately a school bus and and half large. My 
husband is better with measurements than I am, but I am the one filling out this 
report so bear with me. As the craft slowly moved along above us, I was going 
about 25-30 mph it changed the color of the lights underneath located in the tips 
of the triangle. The front one was now red and the other two, green and blue. 
The outside edges were glowing with a yelowishgreen light all the way around 
the outside perimeter of the craft and also the same thing aprox. 2-3 feet inward. 
The middle of the triangle was dark against the night sky, but could not see the 
stars through it so we knew it was solid. My husband has good eyesight and 
does not wear glasses he saw the underneath with half of his body stuck out of 
the window. My daughter her whole head was out of the window look! ing up. 
There was absolutely no sound! I said to my husband and daughter this is 
awesome, kind of like being in a movie because this is something you do not 
see everyday. My daughter got scared. She said, "you guys, I think this is a UFO 
we are seeing and it is really scarey!" I tried to assure her, but did not know 
what to say. I told her maybe it is just a government experiment we are seeing, 
knowing it could be something more. My husband said, "well all I know for sure 
is no one can tell me this is a weather balloon." As the craft followed us a short 
distance it went a little faster ahead so it was right infront of us still at tree level.
 At this moment I noticed that I had this trucker without a load and just his rigg 
behind me right on my back bumper and he was practically running me off of 
the road. But I held my ground. Then the craft shot straight up directly over us 
and higher than the trees so it could navigate over them. Once it was up in the 
air it shot very quickly south over the trees and then down again. At this point we 
could only see the red light and it seemed to skim across Clear Lake and 
disappear. We could no longer see it through the trees. The trucker behind us 
was going hysterical all over the road. We finally turned off of 11th and the 
trucker drove fast and furiously down the road toward the other side of Clear 
Lake. We think he was either following it or trying to get away from it. When we 
got home we were so amazed by what we saw none of us spoke about it until 
the next day. When I went to work I told a co-worker who was at the 
housewarming party. She knew me and I felt she would not make fun of me 
for sharing this expeience with her. Later that evening my husband and I talked 
about it, asking each other what was the flash and could there possibly be any 
explanation for what we seen. The next morning at work I spoke with the same 
gal and told her we could not forget what we seen because it made such an 
immpression on us. That morning I got on the internet! and looked up planes to 
see if there were any shaped like a triangle, not really expecting to find any, but 
had to look none the same. Then I thought about what my daughter had said 
and I typed in the acronymn UFO for "unidentified flying object". My search engine 
brought up this site and on the home page as I scrolled down was a rough 
drawing of what I had seen. I grabbed my co-worked after she hung up the phone 
and brought her over to my computer to show her the drawing on the web page. 
She could not believe her eyes that it was there exactly how I decribed it. I 
confided in a few others as they too overheard our discussion. They know me 
and can vouche for my character. This is not something I would make up. I spoke 
with my husband at lunch that day and we were concerned about the flash we 
received. We wanted to find a way to get in touch with those present that night. I 
called one of the local newspapers and asked the gal who answered the phone 
if anyone called in to report something strange or unusual in the sky over Forest 
Lake Sunday night. She laughed and said "no". I then called the competition 
newspaper and was able to speak with a reporter who to print the story and 
wanted our names and possibly picures. He said, sounds like you seen a UFO 
and having our names will make it seem legitamate. This way if someone saw 
it they could call the newspaper and get in touch with us. I told him, not with out 
my husbands permission, I would call him back the next day. When I did he never 
answered the phone so I left a message. After talking with my husband he did 
not want our identity given out since we live in such a small community and we 
are active members in one of the larger churches in town. He did not want us to 
suffer harassment or to be humiliated by those not believing our story. We both 
however are concerned about this beam of light flashing us and are concerned 
about what it could do to our health. We were wondering if others who may have 
had similar experiences could somehow ! get through to us through this website 
and contact us to let us know if there are any side effects or long term conditions 
that arise as a result to being exposed to this beam of light. At his point I want to 
say to the readers of my report that all three of us, my husband, my daughter and 
myself are church attending Christians. We live in a small, but growing community. 
We are respected members of our community and church and live busy lives. My 
husband and myself both are employed and hold responsible full-time positions 
and my daughter has been in classes for gifted children and currently in advanced 
classes. My husband and I are both educated and above average intelligence. We 
have no need to make a fraudulent claim and waste our time and yours reading 
this report. In our busy lives up until now there has not been a lot of time to spend 
contemplating the existence of what we have seen. This sighting has changed 
the way we view things and we will never be able to look at the night sky the same 
way. If there is a logical explanation for what we saw we want to find it. If there is 
not we will realize that this is probably a once in a lifetime experience. Thank-You 
for reading our story and if you have any experience with being flashed with a 
beam of light from a triangular craft we would like to know about it. Please contact 
the wonderful people who dedicate their time and energy to maitaining this site. 
Hopefully they will put you in touch with us. "The three of us"

I can offer you no further information regarding November 8, 2003.
Except what Brian Vike posted.
For this sighting that is all there was to it.
The Light came in in a horizontal position. It was turning to its side or vertical as I was 
proceeding to take the picture. It emitted a reddish glow or reflection around it but was 
clearly BRILLIANT white itself. It stopped and before I snapped again it just VANISHED.
I may only add that when it was coming in horizontal from the east it was more of a blue 
color....I later watched the eclipse and have had no further incidence.
Thank you...

Brian Vike may share with you any other information I have sent to him.
I have established a respect and TRUST in his work.
Please understand the same confidentiality and respect that he has set as a standard.
I have VERY good reason to be cautious and maybe even 'paranoid' regarding my

Object was oval in shape. Coming from the east and horizontal. As it gets very 
close it turns to a vertical position and emits a red glow. Remains ‘sideways’ for 
a few seconds then simply blinks off. Just disappeared. The moon was rising to 
the southeast of vantage point, air was surreal and it was quiet. No other remarks.

moving light in sky, changed direction and disappeared.
Saw a bright white light in the sky approx. as big as a cigarrete butt in diameter. 
Moved to the northeast, approx. 5 miles, then turned and went straight into the 
air until it disappeared from sight into the sky. Light moved at an incredible 
pace, no noise, no contrail, no strobe or wing lights.I do not know how far away 
it was, or how far it travelled. I estimate it was 15 miles away, and travelled a 
total of 12 - 15? miles. The light was accelerating from the time I saw it, until 
it disappeared.

Location: North St Paul, MN
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 - 4 sec
green fireball with sparks desending slowly
It was Dec 25th 2003 about 9:40pm very clear night out. I had just come outside 
with my dog Bippy she really like the snow. I was about to throw a snowball out 
to Bippy when a big green fireball with sparks stopped me in mid-throw. It was 
desending at about a 45 degree angl in the northern sky it seems to just go out 
right before it would have not been visible to me do treeline. At first I thought 
a meteor then i thought fireworks but i know it wasn't fireworks i've never seen 
a meteor but i have seen shooting stars and it absolutely wasn't that. It traveled 
slow and was very vivid with no sound. It did look like it could have been a flare 
from a flare gun but don't flares leave a big trail of smoke behind? This had no 
trail only white sparks and the fireball was very green like a green intersection 
light. It seemed to be farely low in the sky to my location like i could have got 
in my car and found it with in a few miles. I wouldn't be so curious if it wasn't 
for all the very similer reports I've been reading on this site. I'm sure i'll 
hear that other people saw this too. I do remember right after the fireball went 
out a plane or something high in the sky moving what seemed to me to be very fast 
for a plane but not unGodly fast across the sky heading in the exact direction 
where the fireball when out but was very far away to the point where when I notice 
it seconds after the fireball went out I had turned completely around and was now 
looking south southwest the fireball was north northeast from me. All i could 
really see of that was the typical light on it just like on a plane. It just seemed 
to be moving faster then any plane i've ever seen in that area. mind you i've 
always been a night sky gazer and at the time was in the backyard of where i live 
and have lived for the past three years. never seen anything like that ever or 
even heard of anything like that before that. thats why i was superized to see 
so many similiar reports.
