Glowing green object crosses Twin Cities at low altitude

I was driving home alone on westbound highway 36 in Roseville MN. It was about 10:45 pm and I had just passed the Rosedale shopping mall when I glanced out the side window of my car. I saw a craft emitting pale green light moving very quickly through the low clouds. It was flying from east to west, toward downtown Minneapolis. I watched it glide through the sky for a moment, but then I had to look back at the road to make a curve. When I tried again to look for the light, it was gone.

Because of the low clouds, I could not fully make out what the object was. At first I thought it was a small plane, but it instantly struck me as different because it did not behave like a plane. Its pale green light was steady, not blinking. And it was moving at a low altitude so quickly and steadily, in an impossibly-perfect straight line. I have never seen any plane do like this.

And about 30 seconds after I saw this, my 17 year old nephew called me from St Paul MN on my cellular phone to tell me that he had just seen a UFO. He described exactly what I had just seen--only he had gotten a better look at it.

He was sitting outside on his front step in St Paul, and the craft crossed the sky at low altitude, from east to west. He saw the same pale green light passing in and out of the low clouds. But he got a good look at the craft -- it was triangular shaped, like an arrowhead. And the pale green light was coming from lights along the edges that were long, more like fluorescent light tubes than like bulbs that you would see on a plane. And the craft was perfectly silent.

I believe my nephew and I saw the same craft, from vantage points about 10 miles apart, as it crossed the Twin Cities from St Paul to Minneapolis at low altitude.
