Location: Bigfork, MN
Shape: Circle
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Outdoor grilling with neighbor, when he spotted red glowing object in the sky. Altitude of object was approx. what you'd expect from a small plane, but there was no noise from it nor the blinking light[s]. I can only guess its distance because we couldn't be sure of its scale.

It moved from south to north at a steady but slow pace.... We had trees near us that obscured it partially, but actually had time to try [unsuccessfully] to get our wives to come out and view this. We had been out on our pontoon less than an hour earlier on probably the calmest evening I can ever remember so thinking this was a burning ember being blown about by the wind wouldn't have made sense.
