Reported: 11/11/2007 2:54:35 AM 02:54
Posted: 11/28/2007
Location: Detroit Lakes, MN
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 Seconds
A black triangular craft with white lights at the vertices flew across the Northern Minnesota sky headead southwest.

I was sitting in my camp chair in an area northeast of the city of Detroit Lakes. I was in an isolated area with very little light pollution. The night was very clear and I could see every star in the big dipper constellation, a testament to the clarity of the skies. I was looking Northward when from the right side of my vision (The East), a black, triangular craft with one bright white light, about magnitude 2.0, at each one of the three vertices of the triangle. The craft flew westward with a slight southern turn, it was completely silent throughout the duration of the flight. I observed it fly across the entire sky, from my point of view the object seemed to be two hundred feet long at least. I have taken several astronomy classes and have a background in the physical sciences. I am very skeptical by nature, I am however, unable to explain this event.
