Location: Aitkin, MN
Shape: Fireball
Glowing in the tree line was an amazing aluminous orange fireball .

One large fireball about half the size of a hot air balloon. It was moving about 20 miles an hour. We were facing north. It was moving west in a straight line, following right above the tree line. It was dome shaped with an orange aluminous glow and had a yellowish aura around it. I got up and went on the dock with my flashlight and shined it. It stopped and shrunk itself and went west up in the sky at a 90 degree angle. Our lake is about 5 or 6 city blocks across. There were light clouds passing with visible stars. It was amazing. This is the third time me and my husband had a sighting.

I am a 45 year old mother of 3 girls and work in a hospital. My husband is 40 years old and is a driver for a big mechanical co. My daughter is 10 and a great student. One of our neighbors is a 53 year old female and works for a bank securing loans. Our other neighbor is a 15 year old female and also an excellent student.
