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.

http://www.kevinandtammy.net/video/ufo.asx 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.
