Sighting Reports 2008

Several See Group of Erratic Moving Lights in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: May 25, 2008
Time of Sighting: 9 PM (Beginning Time)
Date Sighting Reported: May 25, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Three Hours
Location of Sighting: Evansville, Minnesota (W. Central MN About 50 MI From North Dakota Border)
Latitude: 46.0 Degrees North
Longitude: 95.69 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Six
Weather: Clear Skies. (Per Witness Observation.)

Description: One of the witnesses called during the time when the lights were sighted. Apparently the lights would move from low on the horizon to a high angle and then move back to a lower angle. This pattern continued during the entire duration of the sighting. The direction of the sighting was towards the North-Northwest.

Comments: I thought that the witnesses were viewing a celestial phenomenon given that the skies were clear and that the direction of the lights continued in the same area of the sky. I thought that the apparent movement was due to an optical illusion called autokinesis. I requested that the witnesses take photos of each area of the sky and anchor the camera (preferably on tripod). I did not receive any photos from the witnesses.
