Location: Minneapolis, MN
Shape: Sphere
Duration:1 minute
Object just sat in the air glowing brightly, then dimmed. There seemed to be no pattern to it.

I was traveling back to Michigan on a redeye flight. We were at about 15 thousand feet. It was about 15 minutes to 6 am. We were over minneapolis. The object was perfectly round and just sitting out there. It seemed to glow sporadically on one side. The lights went from bright white, to a greenish and a very faint orange. I observed it for about a minute but as we began our decent down through the clouds I lost sight of it. I did not tell anybody, and I dont believe anybody on the northwest flight saw it (as they were asleep) but I dont see how the pilots could miss it. I was the observer, I'm a visual effects artist in motion pictures, and a follower of ufo's, crop circles and the paranormal.
