Location: Minnesota (central, rural), MN
Shape: Chevron
Duration:90 seconds
observed two chevron crafts hovering 225 & 300 feet. aprox. 500 feet from my location. They were directly to my west, and also observed from north. rear one then lifted and both left.

I was driving North on a single lane Gravel road that bends to the West. Before the bend I noticed 2 sets of lights hovering above the trees. When I was directly to the East of them, I stopped my car and shut it off, trying to listen for rotors. There was no noise made by these crafts. They were only about 500 feet to my west and hovering about 225' (Northern most one) and 300'. I observed these for aproximately 60 seconds, then started the car and drove around the bend until I was directly North of them. I could not see an object due to the blackness of the night, however the lights (4 on each side, and one in the center rear) formed a triangular/chevron shape. As I came to a stop directly behind them (Aprox. 150' away) the rear one lifted to the altitude of the other (very slowly) and both, slowly proceeded South. I immediately lost sight of them. I would estimate the size of these to be about 150' width furthest light to furthest light. x 100' tip to Chevron indent.
