large object minneapolis baffles experts.

kstp am radio 1500 had callers regarding object in the sky. very very high but clearly visible. must have been a huge object. some said weather baloon but according to eyewitness news kstp faa has not got a clue and neither does the national wheather service. pleae check into this. I can't believe that the FAA does not know what it was. after all. it was there in plain sight for many to see.

((NUFORC Note: One of several reports from the Twin Cities area. At first, we thought the object might be a balloon, launched from Canada, as part of the MANTRA scientific project, but the balloon had not yet been launched on August 19. The local news media covered the event extensively. We do not know what the object, or objects, were. Please see other reports. PD))
