Video of object over the Minneapolis metro area on 8-19-04

My family and I viewed this object over the Minneapolis area on August 19th, 2004 from late afternoon until well after dark. From the news reports I heard, the object was over the metropolitan area most of the day. I took a video of it and it can be seen by pasting this address into your browser. The video causes the image to appear somewhat smaller than it did to the naked eye. To get a better approximation, take a pea and hold it at arms length away from you. The pea would be a fairly good representation of the size of the object.

We viewed it looking north and at about the 1:30 position horizontally.
