Location: Camp Ripley (rural, just west of), MN
Shape: Formation
Duration:1 hr. or so.
Two hovering amber lights, one slightly below the other, fixed in place; and occasional bright blueish/green flashes.

On august 4th 1999 at about three in the morning, my friend and I were traveling north on U.S. Hwy. 10. He lives in Fargo, ND, and I live in Minneapolis. My car was stalled at my wifes grandmothers house in Wadena, MN. My friend was on his way back home from my house, so I caught a ride with him to go pick the car up. As we were driving in the area of the Camp Ripley military base, we both started to feel very strange, almost like static electricity in the air. then, as we rounded a bend we saw two very bright amber lights appear directly in front of us, aprox. 500-1000 feet off the ground, I would say. One was slightly higher than the other, and both remained in the same spot for about 25 or so miles, until we saw them finally fall very slowly behind the tree line. Also along with the lights were bright blueish/green flashes, that appered somewhat like lightning, but were eminating from the ground, just to the east of Hwy. 10. Many other very strange, but somewhat hard to explain things also occured from that time on that night, but I don't know if they are related or not.
