U.F.O. Report I’m writing this report more then a year after the event originally happened, I feel that what I saw was substantial, and needed to be known. I also have heard of other similar sightings and felt this may contribute some important information. The event took place in early July 2006, the night was clear and weather was warm. Some friends of mine took a sailing trip to Thompson Island, located in Lake Superior, this is about a 4 hour sailboat trip from the Thunder Bay Marina. The unidentified craft was seen at night. Some of our friends had decided to sleep on the sailboat in the small bay that the island offers, however due to the warm July weather 5 of us had decided to take the 15 minute walk to the other side of the island and tent. Rather then tent, we actually decided to lay our blankets out upon the beach and lay beneath the stars. We rested on the beach and talked late into the night, during this time 2 of the 5 of us drifted off to sleep, the time was now nearly roughly 3 or 4 am. The stars were out and visible all night and we had been looking at constellations and the stars all night. Well in mid conversation, one of us was distracted by what seemed to be a star and commented “ Guys look at those stars they seem really bright”. So all three of us looked upwards and the same distance as a star would seem away was a ball of light, it seemed to be a star at first but it was getting brighter without at doubt, upon closer inspection it seemed to be slightly blue/white light, the type you would see in some peoples headlights for there vehicles, and as we looked.. off to the right side of the sky faded in two more lights of the same type and size. They moved parallel to each other and then moved into a triangle formation with the third and original light. They then stopped all motion, and unexpectantly began what seemed random looping and changing of direction, something a plane/ helicopter/ or satellite could not accomplish, the movement was from nothing to very fast in no time at all, after doing ! what see med at random series of movement the three lights split apart and moved away in different direction. This whole series of events happened in probably 5- 7 minutes, and was viewed from this remote island in the middle of Lake Superior by 3 people.
