Sighting Reports 2009

Circular Orange Object Shoots Straight Up & Then West in Night Sky

Date of Sighting: July 4, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10:10 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Bloomington, Minnesota (Suburb of Twin Cities)

Description: My husband, two friends and our two daughters were outside with the fireworks. My youngest daughter spotted a circular orange object coming at them. All of them saw this and while my husband first thought it was a bright light from a helicopter the object came close with absolutely no sound. It approached slowly, but then took off straight up and then continued west. I caught the last 20 seconds of it and was in awe. I think with it being the fourth of July that I must state that no one was drunk. Three adult skeptic men saw this.

Note: Many sightings occur around the 4th because more people are outside and are viewing fireworks in the night sky. However, this does not mean that everything that is seen is due to fireworks. (I doubt if the above light reported was any firework projectile.)
