Sighting Report
Occurred : 5/20/2005 03:00 (Entered as : 05/20/2005 03)
Reported: 5/20/2005 6:47:11 PM 18:47
Posted: 5/24/2005
Location: Fergus Falls, MN
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 minutes
I observed a bright orange triangle that made no noise and moved slowly into the North disappearing.

A bright orange triangular object appeared from the East at treetop level.

It slowly moved Westerly in a wavy fashion. It then proceeded to move North slowly and faded off into the distance.

The object made no sound. The night was clear and still. I observed this from my backyard on my deck and the neighborhood was quite dark.

On the Northern horizon there was a faint display of the Northern Lights in the distance.

The object seemed to disappear about the point where the Northern Lights faded. The object would fit in the full moon, if the full moon was about half its normal size.

((NUFORC Note: We express our gratitude to the Fergus Falls Daily Journal, and its award-winning journalist, Mr. Brandon Stahl, for publishing their article about this reported event.

Please see other report from second witness in Fergus Falls. The source of this report indicated that the object was in the northern sky, from his vantage point. The second witness, who lived three blocks to the north of this witness, indicates that she had witnessed the object to the sourth, from her vantage point at her home. If that second report is true, the object may have been located between the two witnesses.
