Duration: 3 minutes
No of observers: 3

Location: Golden Valley, MN, USA

Shape: Orb

Myself, my daughter and her friend were driving in our neighborhood. I was going to make a turn and while I was looking to my left to see if it was clear to make my turn, I noticed what I initially thought was a street light, but quickly discerned that this orb was moving from east to west alongside and parallel with the road I was about to make a right turn onto. I watched as it came closer to where I was. It was the same color and almost the same intensity as those orange street lights. I didn't want to lose it and wanted a better look so I quickly made the turn and had to take an immediate left onto my street.

I pulled over, shut my car off and got out of my car so I could see if there was any breeze like maybe it was a lantern. No,it wasn't. It was approximately slightly larger than one of those exercise balls (though it's difficult to determine size and how high it was ). It seemed to be approximately 50-100 ft in the air. Noiseless, floating against ! the breeze turned toward the south and then the light went out as soon as it was almost directly above me and I could still see there was some structure but very dark and as it moved away from me I lost track of where it was. My mind wanted to go to every LOGICAL explanation. It was NOT ball lightening, swamp gas, drone, I cannot come up with anything that fits. I should have reported it sooner, but I feel if anyone else saw it I don't want them to feel alone or like they're crazy because we saw it too!
