Girded Structured UFO with many lights spends 45 minutes hovering over Fairbanks, Alaska on January 13, 2005

Semi Trapezoidal or Angular Platform like Structure, with many white opaque lights, was seen from the Wal~Mart employee parking lot at about 8 PM on January 13, 2005.

Spires with lights on them appeared to jut out from it's left side. It was a clear night -44 Degrees Below Zero. There was a slight breeze moving from left to right of viewing plane. I estimate the breeze moving from East to West. We were looking south from the parking lot. The object hovered silently and stayed stationary regardless of the breeze. After about 5-10 minutes the object began to move slightly toward the right of the viewing plane. The object then stopped again and remained stationary. While observing it I waited for ((name deleted)) to see it since I did not want to imply what I was seeing. He then looked up where I was looking and asked, "What the hell is that?" Be both observed it for a few more minutes then both decided to go home. He drove up to murphy Dome Road and said it was no longer in his sight.

The object stayed stationary as we both went home. The object was in my path as I drove home, moving toward it, so I watched it as I was driving home looking to see if it would get any bigger. I am still not sure if it did get any bigger. Later measurements seem to indicate that it did appear larger at my appartment. At my appartment, I observed the object from my balcony and still was trying to explain it away. I convinced myself that it was lights from a far away building I never knew existed before, and had a feeling that it would be there in the morning. However, I convinced myself of this in spite that I knew it was a wrong assumption. This was because the structure of the placement of the lights were sort of in a random pattern of distribution and that I had seen it moving.

I had a camera with me but assumed that it would be there in the morning. I went to bed, due to exaustion, after 30 minutes had elapsed from the initial sighting to the balcony sighting even thought the object was still visible. So my visual sighting took only about 30 minutes.

However, after a conversation with a Physics Personnel at the University of Alaska, Geophysical Institute, we obtained infrasound readings of what may be the object. The infrasound readings indicate that there might have been an engine signature on Atmospheric Entry and then another signature on Exiting the Earths Atmosphere. The infrasound readings obtained sounds well below human hearing levels. Anyhow, two distinct readings do exist that happen to be approximately 45 minutes apart.

I am still in the process of obtaining weather radar data, and any other data possible.
