Sighting Reports 2008

Couple See Fast Moving Airborne Green Ball With White Ring

Date of Sighting: July 20, 2008
Time of Sighting: 9:45 CDT
Date Sighting Reported: July 20, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 5 or 6 Seconds
Location of Sighting: On I-35 Between North Branch & Harris, MN (About 40 MI NE of Minneapolis)
Latitude: 45.56 Degrees North
Longitude: 92.99 degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Two
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Weather: (At Minneapolis Airport) Skies Were Clear. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were Calm. (Witness Stated That He Lost the Object in Some Clouds. Weather Conditions Could Have Been Different at His Location Versus Minneapolis Airport.)

Description: We saw a brightly lit green ball with a white ring around it. The object was flying from the southeast at 500+ mph at an altitude of approximately 8,000 feet above ground level (AGL). We were driving north on I-35 between North Branch and Harris Minnesota. The object descended and flew over our car at approximately 5,000 feet AGL. Once it crossed the freeway heading northwest (approximately 320 degrees) it veered right and flew straight north. It flew a few seconds then climbed up into a cloud bank of altostratus clouds. This is where I lost sight of it. There was no noise.

Comments: The witness has been very explicit describing what he saw. Certainly this object was no meteor or satellite.
