Location: Minneapolis, MN
Shape: Rectangle
Duration: 4 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Long rectangular vertical shaped object with several bright white strobbing lights

My business partner and I went to our east facing window after seeing some flashing lights out of the corner of our eyes. When we went to the window we saw a Long skinny Rectangular shape(roughly 100 feet above us), it was VERTICAL, roughly 15 feet in length, with several(maybe 6 or more)lights on it. The lights were all a very bright white and they were flashing and strobing. The light would start on the bottom and was strobbing and getting progressively brighter as it went up. Then it would repeat this. It made no noise. It looked like a floating rectangle. We watched it strob and flash as it flew off to the east horizon.
