Location: Grand Marais, MN
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Early August 2013 Near Eagle Mountain of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of Northern Minnesota Around 10 p.m. CDT At a camp site, I looked up at the stars and saw a large object, perhaps the dimensions of a large, long air plane, at the height of what an air plane would appear just taking off from an airport and gaining altitude. It could possibly have been two objects travelling in unison, but I had the impression it was one. However, it did not seem to occlude the stars beyond it.

This object however moved straight across the sky (at the speed an airport just gaining altitude would have).

It moved across my field of vision in about 20-30 seconds.

It had a white, non-flashing light at each end.

It made absolutely no sound in a quiet, secluded camp site.
