National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 8/31/2008 00:05
Reported: 8/31/2008 6:15:44 PM 18:15
Posted: 10/31/2008
Location: St. Paul, MN
Duration: 3 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
The time of night was close to 12:05 am August 31, 2008.

From my kitchen window facing north I saw a object cross from from my right to left going in a northwesterly direction, it was about dime size at arms length, perfectly round in shape.

Using a protractor it was 30 degrees up from level when first seen, from there it traveled in a curve downward till it disappeared behind the tree line.

Time seen was about 3 seconds, of the 180 degrees of sky from right to left my view of it was only about 45 degrees.

When first seen it was straight north and then disappeared to the northwest 45 degrees later behind the tree line.

To me it seemed close, a few miles or so.

I could not tell if it was self illuminating or from friction, there was no debris trail, the color was bright white with a reddish fringe around the perimeter.
