at 6:30 pm i was playing outside with my daughter. We were running through the trails i shoveled through the snow. My daughter loves to point at the moon and the stars ever so often. So before we went inside to get out the cold i said to her "say goodbye to the moon and the stars." I panned the sky and to the north over Lake Superior i saw a bright light. Twice as bright as the ever is on its brightest night. It was moving from west to east. At first i thought it was a satalite. But i realized it was much to bright. My mind was racing trying to figure out what could be so bright in the sky. Im absolutley sure it was not a plane. It made no noise had no flashing lights and was way to bright. Its was not a meteor, There was no tail and the object moved in a straight line perfect to the horizon. The light began to fade. I thought it was going behind clouds. But the sky was clear and i could see stars all around the area of the object. And not a could anywhere i! n the sky! It faded fairly quickly until it was just gone. I brought my daughter quickly inside. Handed her off to her mother and went right back out to watch for more. In a matter of three minutes i was back outside scanning the north horizon when i saw a jet flying the exact same path. I could see the flashing lights of the jet and hear the roar of the engines. I stayed outside for another 20 minutes and saw one satalite. The satalite was much dimmer and much slower than the object i saw. I have no blurry pics, no shaky cell phone cam and my only witness is my year and a half daughter. But i saw it. And it was cool. I am puzzled. Excited. Curious. Just dont know what it was. I guess thats why there called UFO's.
