me and my girlfriend were traveling north on hwy 89 leaving bemidji mn going to redlake mn and the sky was dark you could not see any stars in the sky but we did notice a bright flash of light that was mimicing a strobe light in the sky but did not see the source of it for another 10 miles it was really bright but we come to where you would turn right to poposky {east} and obsurved the source of the flash as we drove by {it flashed twice} and we didnt think nothing of it for another 17 miles north up the road real close to redlake then i had stopped the car ((text deleted)) and i looked at the sky and i could still see the big bright flash in the sky i told my girl friend she didnt think nothing of it i thaught it could have been a a tower light but they were not that darn bright so we turned around went back south on hwy 89 17 miles back to the poposky road ware we should have turned left to go east toward poposky but we stopped to observe the source of the bright light we could not make any object out but it was bright it lit up the sky and you could see the bright light for at least 30 miles away and this is honest but any way the source was only a couple miles east down the poposky road as we were traveling east we thaught we were getting ever so close and so we stopped and i got out to have a look and i was preatty much standing in the spot whereit was hovering above and there was a lake whare it was hovering over just a little lake and ther was houses in the area my girlfriend got out and we looked at each other and i said hey it moved away she agreed but we could still the flash so we kept going and we got up to it again then rounded a corner and the sourc was gone again so we kept going east and come to a stop sign left was back north and right was south and i got out again looked up and the darn thing must have been 20 miles away cause the brightness dimmed down quit a bit my girl friend was then scared she said lets go home so we went left back home as we were going north we cou! ldent see the light but we had just drove about 15 miles north then took a left on a side road west got only about 1.5 miles and my girl frend said there it is so i slowed down looked up she no on the ground and i saw the damn thing had landed on the ground still mimicing a strob light but the srength of the light was weaker compaired to before we saw it on the ground blinking i sped down the road went home i didnt look back the next night i retraced the whole route there was no light like that to be seen
