Sighting Reports 2008

Three See Light Move Erratically & Then Stop

Date of Sighting: July 27, 2008
Time of Sighting: 11:30 PM CDT
Date Sighting Reported: July 27, 2008
Duration of Sighting: About an Hour
Location of Sighting: Rice Lake Township, Minnesota (N. Minnesota Near Duluth)
Latitude: 47.0 Degrees North
Longitude: 92.12 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Three
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Weather: Clear Skies. Visibility 10 Miles. Winds Were Calm.

Description: A couple and a friend were outside checking on a farm animal. They saw a bright light move across the sky away from the "Big Dipper." The light dimmed and slowed down after it moved across about 1/4 of the sky. At that point the light became stationary and "settled between two stars." The light remained in the same position and was still in the position when one of the witnesses typed a report and sent it to this web site. The witnesses observed the light through binoculars when it was stationary.

Comments: This report doesn't indicate anything unusual. The witnesses could have seen an aircraft or possibly a satellite move across the sky and then lose sight of it. They would then be fooled into thinking that the object had stopped by mistaking a star for the object.
