Location: Minneapolis, MN, USA

Shape: Light

Fast moving ball of light over Mississippi River in Minneapolis.

I was driving home from work very early in the morning on 2/6/17 about 2:30 am. I was driving eastbound across the Mississippi River bridge on I-94. I looked to the southeast and saw a bright ball of light moving downward at what appeared to be between a 45 and 90 degree angle. It was moving very fast and I lost sight of it as some trees came between me and the light.

My first impression was it looked like a missile, but I saw no flashes or smoke. There was no visible tail on the light. From the speed, angle of movement, and appearance it did not look like a plane, helicopter, or drone. I make no claims to know what it was, but it was definitely odd enough that it made me take note.


We have corrected the date above, to reflect a sighting on the morning of the 6th of February. PD
