This report submitted by Chris Rutkowski, renowned UFO investigator and author in Manitoba. Chris is co-author of the annual survey of Canadian UFO sightings:

Two Ph.D. researchers witness peculiar "amorphous" ball of light, located almost directly overhead, in the night sky, and are confused that they are not able to identify it. It appeared to them to be internally lit, and it appeared to have an internal "structure," as well. It appeared to have a blue fringe of light around its periphery. The object's apparent size was approximately "a few degrees." (The Moon subtends an arc of approximately 0.6 degrees (est.)

The researchers photographed the object with a digital camera, but have not released the photograph, yet. They apparently are trying to make up their minds regarding what to do with the data, and with the photograph.
