Location of Sighting: Minneapolis, Minnesota
Date of Sighting: September 1, 2016
Time of Sighting: 7:50 PM CDT
Description: I was looking into the north sky and saw a UFO. (I couldn’t identify it, but it didn’t look too unconventional. It could have been a hot air balloon accident, but it seemed weird seeing it over the city.) It looked like two objects, possibly attached to each other. One of the objects was larger and darker, and had an irregular shape which I thought might be like a parachute. The other object had flames coming off of it and a smoke trail. They seemed to flutter down leaving an S shaped smoke trail as it fell from the sky and disappeared quickly behind some buildings. The whole sighting was short, maybe only a minute or two from when I first saw it. No one else around me seemed to notice. There were no unusual colors, just a regular yellowish-white flame and black smoke that dissipated quickly. I didn’t hear any sounds from it. If I had to guess sizes, the larger object was maybe 150 feet across. The flame coming off of the other object was pretty long, about 50 feet. It wasn’t very high up in the sky when I first saw it, maybe only a mile or two, but it was definitely falling from the sky uncontrollably.
