Date Reported:

5/22/2006 3:48:25 PM

Sighting Time: 

3:30 P.M.



No. of Witnesses: 



2 1/2 minutes

Appearance / Description of Object(s)

4 bright white lights independant of eachother. Each light was round and a little bit hazy but very bright. One of the lights was larger than the other and was much easier to see.

Size of Object(s)

If you held your arms at length 3 of the lights were like holding up a pea, the third was as large as a dime(slightly smaller). There actual size may be about twice the size of a passenger jet.

Description of Area / Surroundings

I was heading south on University avenue at about 69th avenue in Fridley. The day was calm and the sky was clear, about 80 degrees outside. I've tried not to sound like a lunatic but this will be the only thing that I leave out of the story if I tell a close friend... It looked like the lights flew in, hovered in the sky just north of downtown 2 of the lights seemed to go to do something else the third tried to wait for the fourth but just left... the third seemed to be checking out the cityflying from the southeast section then flew across to the southwest then up then down and across again, finished up its liitle flight and flew in a splitsecond south and vanished.... it acted intelligently!

Full Description & Details

I was driving south on University avenue through Fridley when my passenger and I noticed some faint lights off in the south eastern sky. About 30 seconds passed by and we could then see the 4 balls of light clearly. Neither of us could believe what we were seeing. The bright white lights looked as if they were hovering a few thousand feet off the ground over the northern section of Minneapolis. It was a clear day with no clouds. I slowed down my car and leaned part way out the window to see more clearly. My passenger and I explained to eachother what we were seeing as it was happening. 2 of the lights seemed to fade a little then seemed to zoom south across the horizon, a few seconds later the 3rd seemed to do the same. The brightest ball began to move across the sky at first to the southwest....it didn't just slowly fly either, it covered a huge distance in less than a second then made an immediate turn and flew higher and to the northeast... I'm guessing each time it cruised across the sky it was flying more than 20 miles. It continued to make what would be absolutely impossible maneuvers for about 45 seconds then shot across the sky southwest.

I am leaving this descriptioin for anyone to take from it what they will. I know what I saw. I had a witness with me. This experience left us physically shaking because we had NO explanation for what happened. This wasn't a split second thing... we watched these balls of light hovering in mid-air then speed away at thousands of miles per hour! The last one was the icing on the cake and brought me to an all out sweat because this (whatever it was) was intelligently cruising around above the city making sharp zig zag manuevers that no rocket,plane,helicopter,missle could make.

I was close minded before this event.... now I'm just freaked out. It's been eight years since this happened and I can't get it out of my head.

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


Witness Background

I sell siding, windows and roofing.... at the time of the incident I had just turned 19, I am 26 now.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting

I guess I had the same curiousity as everyone alse before the event. I suppose my personal belief was that there probably is life (maybe not intelligent) but something out there in space. I figured all the so-called sightings were all fakes. This has been a personal experience for me, I have never told an authority of this event and would not like to be thought of as some U.F.O. nut. I saw what I saw... theres is no doubt it was something not of this earth...If I could submit a drawing of the event you'd see what I mean about it not being any kind of flying vehicle made. I guess I'm a closet believer now. here is something going on- I wish I could explain or understand what happened that day.
