|Bright lights over St. Croix River/Bayport area Minnesota
Driving toward Stillwater on 1/27/10 and 1/28/10 about 8:30 pm, driving on Route 36 toward Wisconsin, noticed two bright lights similar to police helicopters with searchlights hanging in the air just above the horizon in the distance, motionless, in the distance over the next town of Bayport near the power plant, or over the St. Croix River. The first night, as we got nearer, the lights faded, one actually separated into two lights close together, one slightly higher than the other, and then both slowly got dimmer and disappeared. Last night, the second night we were driving back the same way at the same time, and the lights were visible in the same place. This time my husband and I were determined to get closer to them, so we drove down toward Bayport all the way to the river's edge, but lost them behind the trees while we were driving. The planets Mars and Saturn were clearly visible higher up in the sky, unblinking, and were not these lights. I will go ! back to the spot at 8:30 pm tonight with a camera and try to photograph it if the objects are visible.
