Full Description & Details

On the night of June 6th, on the birthday of the twins, Bob and Gina, five friends of mine and I drove to the Old Wadena camp site on the Crow Wing River, northwest of Staples, MN. When I got out of the car, I looked to the north and saw a bright, satellite-like object rising out of the horizon which I pointed out to my friends as a satellite. Then, someone else in the group said, "There's another one!" pointing out a similar object rising out of the southren horizon. It soon became apparent that the objects were on intercept courses. Exactly when they met near the zenith, the one from the north stopped dead without decelerating. The object from the south continued at apparently orbital height, finally disappearing below the northren horizon. The object from the north simply hung in the sky, doing nothing further, appearing like the stars around it. After watching for some time, nothing happened, so we went to work setting up camp. I looked up the phase of the moon on that night on the Internet; it was a sliver.

Other Comments

I believe that some UFOs are a real, unusual phenomenon of some kind. I don't think there is yet enough evidence to say what they are. But, because the occupants are usually described as humanoids, I wonder whether they could be time travelers from our future.
