Location:

Maplewood State Park, Rural Erhard , Minnesota, United States

Summary:

A quietly moving object that appeared to have a beam of light on top and bottom. Followed by a smaller lit object moving on the same path.

Date Reported:

1/20/2015 2:23:05 PM

Sighting Time: 

0630 Hours

Day/Night: 

Dawn

No. of Witnesses: 

2

Duration: 

60 seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

two soft coronas of light emitting from a black void center space. One segment of light was pointed up, the other down. Appeared to be about a 45% angle from the ground. Was moving slower than a plane. Maintained smooth flight path without turns, loss of altitude or variation in speed. Follow by a lit object of unknown color but reminded me of the color of a satellite. Maintained same flight path as leader and was much much smaller/or farther away.

Size of Object(s)

It was about the size of my hand at a plane of about %45. The follower was about the size of my thumb nail.

Description of Area / Surroundings

This is a very rural area on the border of a State Park. There are no street lights or lit buildings present. the nearest town is about ten miles away in the opposite direction. The terrain is rolling with woods and open prairie.

Full Description & Details

A friend and I met at Maplewood State Park on January 10, 2015, it was about 0630 hours. We had pulled into a parking lot on the south side of the park to access the trail system. It was still dark out. My friend brought my attention to the sky saying, "look at the cool moon'. When I looked to the north about tree line/top level, we observed that the source of the light was not the moon but an object that was moving. I observed two sources of light that appeared to be emanating from a central source. I could not see any type of object that was creating the light. The light was soft white v-patterns originating from a central focal point. There was no noise associated with this object. We also observed a smaller lit object that appeared to be following the lead object. The follower appeared to me to be similar to what a satellite looks like. The lead object was much larger and appeared much closer but they seemed to be moving at the same speed and trajectory, maintaining an equidistant relationship. We both observed this object for about a minute until it seemed to fade or disappear near the horizon. The white colored lights had a fuzzy glow to them, not sharp bright, clear light. They were constant but did not blink. I considered the reason for the soft quality to the light could be from fog or ice crystals in the air but the sky was clear.

I was curious if anyone had observed this so did an internet search. I am the third reporter in Minnesota to have reported this. I was with a friend and we both saw the same thing.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

None that I can determine

Summary:

This is the sighting my sister & her two friends had when they were about 11. I wanted it on record. It has been often told. Though I was only about 7, I remember the fear in my sisters face, she was white as a ghost. I knew she was telling the truth. The government explanation was a weather blimp. That UFO was sighted in several states besides Md- Something like Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut.

Full Description & Details

My sister Susanne was walking with 2 friends. As they rounded a corner, or passed some trees they saw it hovering ( description below). Then stopped and gawked at it, mouths fell open. Then they heard someone call "Susanne!" From behind them. They turned around to see who it was. There was no one. Then they turned back toward the object, it was gone. If it had been a blimp like the government said, it couldn't have disappeared so quickly. Many yrs later I asked my sister if she thought they had been abducted for a short time. She said it had occurred to her, but she didn't know.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No

Witness Background

I am a nurse, my sister works for her towns water dept

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

We did not think much about it before this & never knew my father had seen one in depression-era. At this time in 60s, people thought you were crazy if you saw a UFO. My sisters 2 friends were harassed by their families to keep silent.

Other Comments

I just want this on record. Also the sighting my father had had in the late 1920s to 1930s was a "fireball" type as he described it, flying horizontally. In Ga

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

looked like a helicopter with wings, no propellor, quiet jet engine sound, no tail, large red and white lights on the under side.

Size of Object(s)

about the size of a small car

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

100-200 feet above our heads

Description of Area / Surroundings

Urban backroads

Full Description & Details

I was driving and taking my girlfriend home when we saw five lights about a quarter of a mile apart, two of which looked to be airplanes (the most logical explanation seeing as we both live about 10 minutes from KCI airport). As we kept driving, they started getting closer and closer until it got to the point where they looked to be nearly directly above us. It was a back road with no traffic so I stopped the car and rolled down our windows so i could get a better, unfiltered look at it and it looked like a helicopter with wings, but there were no blades and there was no choppy sound that a helicopter would make. I turned down the radio and turned off the heat so it was a little quieter and we could get a better listen. It sounded like a really soft airplane, but it was hovering 100-200 feet above our heads. Ive never believed in UFO's, but i have believed in the existence of aliens, but i had the worst feeling in my gut when i saw these. As many times as i told myself they were just helicopters, i knew i was lying to myself because they didn't look, sound, or move anything like a helicopter or drone. I drove my girlfriend the rest of the way home (about five minutes after the sighting) and i called her as i was driving back to give her updates, as she was just as curious as i was. I drive the same exact route home as i had when i was taking her to her house and there was no sign of them anywhere in sight. Did some research when i got home and couldn't find anything. hopefully someone can help us out.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

It looked to be possibly man made, but it also looked like nothing i had ever seen before, and truthfully scared the living shit out of me just by looking at it.

Witness Background

both in high school with part time jobs.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Never seen one. Used to be really interested when i was younger but never too crazy about it. Im somewhat agnostic towards UFOs/Aliens. I'll believe it when i see it, basically. And because of about an hour ago, I'm starting to believe a lot more.

Other Comments

A logical explanation would be useful. Id rather someone didn't jump straight to conclusions and say it was a UFO without giving it proper background information, photos, additional sightings of similar flying objects. Just give me something convincing, believable, and preferable true.

Silent, shaped like a small letter "m," with a short oval-shaped object on the bottom right; the "m" was backlit with very very light orange lighting.

Day/Night: 

Nighttime

No. of Witnesses: 

2

Duration: 

60-75 seconds

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

Shaped like a small letter "m," wider at the top than the bottom; the backlight was very light orange; the small oval object on the right was about three-quarters the width of the letter "m" shaped object.

Size of Object(s)

Relative size, about shoulder width (18-20 inches); actual size was about the width of a small plane and one of it's wings.

Distance to Object(s) & Altitude

Distance was about 500 feet in front of me, just above tree level, I will guess about 40-50 feet.

Description of Area / Surroundings

Crystal Lake is surrounded by trees; across the street was a shopping plaza; the road was a two-lane road, we were headed east, then U-turned to face west to watch the craft glide over the road.

Full Description & Details

My sister and I were driving on the road near Crystal Lake in Peabody, MA; the object appeared from the left of us; made a U-turn and we stopped to observe this craft; it was just above tree level, made no sound; it was September, we rolled our window down to hear, but heard nothing; the shape was that of a small letter "m," spread apart wider at the top of the "m" than at the bottom; the backlight was a very light orange color, or so it seemed; there was a small oval-shaped object on the bottom right of the craft; it had two blue-white color lights or windows on it; the craft seemed to silently glide across the road, over the lake, and disappeared behind the trees.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

I surmised that it was some kind of weather balloon, as it didn't make a sound. To this day, I have no idea what it was; even with the onset of stealth aircraft, there were no stealth aircraft in 1973.

Witness Background

Masters degree in psychology; technical manual writer.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I didn't think of them before, only what we saw in movies; after, I have an interest in other sightings, and searching for descriptions like mine.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

Well, I experienced a UFO. My views on so called UFO's are not relevant, it was a sort of round saucer shape from what i could see, it shined direct lighting on us, I felt like I had to fight it off. It was awful. I think the thing was refueling on all the line connections there, but man, it was whew! Like get in the house! But i looke up, it was a saucer. With lights beaming down. What I am relatinging is absolute truth, I have never told the whole thing before.

Other Comments

What i have stated is a true report of what I experienced, no drugs, no beers. just a true life experience.

Full Description & Details

I was working out with my dad in King Edward VIII park. It was around 5 pm and it was getting quite dark. I looked to the sky watching the sun set. While looking I saw that several airplane trails stopped suddenly and seemed to be behind a large object. The object was just static hovering in the sky without moving. It was a dark navy color and seemed to camouflage with the sky. I expected the object and found out it had 8 small blinking lights which had different colors. The lights could not have been an airplane because they were too high and the blinking pattern was different.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I am a keen amateur Ufologist and believe in alien life. After this sighting I feel even more sure that there is extraterrestrial intelligent life.

Full Description & Details

I did not witness this, it was told to me by my Home-Health Care nurse who was en route to my house, also in Edmond. She explained it was a clear, non-cloudy, sunny day. She was waiting at a stop light and looked up to see this shiny black sphere hovering above Broadway Extension (Main Street in Edmond). She said all she could do was watch this sphere in shocked amazement. When she came to my house, she told me what she'd seen. I was very heavily medicated at the time, and this information was not thoroughly absorbed until later. I acknowledged what she said and skied if she'd seen where it had gone to. She had not. We did not discuss this sighting again. I wish I would have discussed it further.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

The Home Health Care nurse had never seen anything like it before. I have been visiting sites, checking on the different shapes and sized of past UFO sightings. Found there have been a number of spherical black and white shaped UFO's sighted. Found your site and read the other sightings, thought it might be a great place to post.

Witness Background

Home Health Nurse, I believe is a college graduate in addition to having a Nursing degree. I am college educated and have been a teacher for 18 years.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

The home health care nurse believed we are not alone. I have never witnessed an UFO, but have been a firm believer we cannot be the only intelligent inhabitants in this vast universe or universes out there!

The object in photo appears to symmetrical, bubble-ish type , oval rounded almost half materialized.

Full Description & Details

From 1999 though 2009 I biked Sedona, Flagstaff and much of N. Az. I always brought a small digital camera to record rides. I just happened to notice this photo with something that appears to be a ufo. Never noticed it or paid attention to it until I decided to print some old photos last week.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

The object could be a weird cloud or some kind of bubble on lens ????

Witness Background

I lived in Arizona from 1989 through 2009. For 10 years I explored as much of Az's biking trails as possible. I took my camera along almost always and only one of my photos has this unusual ufo.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

The last 3 years I have immersed myself into the subject and do believe ET's exist, and have been with humanity for a very long time. I read and watch Richard Dolan , Dr. Steven Greer and Richard C. Hoagland.

I would be interested to know if my photo just has a common photographic explanation. Maybe its a common trick of the sun? I don't know.

Summary:

Let my dog out at 7:00 a.m. This morning. Looked up at stars while I was waiting for her to finish. Saw what I thought was a hazy looking star and thought it was strange. Then it began to move and I realized it was much much closer than a star, and much lower than an airplane would fly. It made no sound at all and I thought maybe it was a blimp. It was almost sunrise, and it looked like it was moving above the treeline - maybe as high as a blimp. The object was elongated and had one bright, but hazy white light in front. The nose of the craft appeared to be rounded. It also had a single bright white light at the tail end. I looked for a body between these two lights but it appeared "invisible". Based on the placement of the it's lights and the slow speed at which it was moving, I think it was cigar shaped. Iit was moving slowly toward the northwest. I have never seen anything even remotely similar to this and had to give myself a "reality check".

Full Description & Details

I Let my dog out at 7:00 a.m. This morning. I Looked up at stars while I was waiting for her to finish. Then I Saw what I thought was a hazy looking star and thought it was strange. This light was bright, but had a fuzzy softer white light around it. Then it began to move and I realized it was much much closer than a star, and much lower than an airplane would fly. It made no sound at all and I thought maybe it was a blimp. It was almost sunrise, and it looked like it was moving above the treeline - maybe as high as a blimp. The nose of the craft appeared to be rounded. It also had a single bright, but smaller white light at the tail end and an even smaller white light about mid section. I looked for a body between the front and rear lights but it appeared "invisible". Based on the placement of it's lights and the slow speed at which it was moving, I think it was cigar shaped. It was moving slowly toward the northwest. I have never seen anything even remotely similar to this and had to give myself a "reality check". I'm hoping someone else saw it too.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?

No. It was unlike anything I have ever seen.
