UFO sighted in Pine City Mn.

My family and I had just moved into the country about 6 miles north of Pine City, Minnesota. We loved looking at the stars and northern light at night. Everything is so vivid. I had recently lost my job driving Greyhound bus, sold the house in Minneapois and decided to rough it for a while. We lived a primitave life style growing our own food, a hand pump outside and an outhouse.

One evening when the family had gone to bed, I stepped outdoors to releive myself. I was facing north looking for the northern lights when I sensed movement behind me. There was a cigar shaped object traveling west to east and slightly downward. It dissapeared behind the treeline. I thought it was a falling star at first but then I realized it was moving much too slow and was not brightly lit.

The more I thought about it the more I thought it must have been an UFO. Two days later I went to town and found everybody talking about some woman on a farm that had a UFO in their yard. It wasn't until later in the day that I put 2 & 2 together that I figured this must have been what I had seen also. The event was recorded in the Pine City Press.

I have never reported this to anyone except my family and some freinds. I don't remember the date but I am sure it will be found in the Pine City Press.
