The following sighting reports are very similar to the one my mother, father, North Minneapolis and I had back in 1975. This is the second time it's happened to a friend of mine, his story:

He said he was walking home from the store during the Monday night snowstorm and as he approached his building, he noticed three women in high-school cheerleader mini-skirts walking silently behind him (he mentioned that they were silent because he said that he only heard his own footfall as it crunched into the snow). When he turned back around he noticed what he first thought to be alot of police cars. Then he said because of the size of it, maybe a large construction crew working on Lyndale Ave N.

As he climbed the steps of his building, he noticed that the women had lined up side-by-side, standing at the foot of the steps but were facing and staring at the "construction sight".

Everything was silent and this is when he said he got the sudden urge to run into the building. He said he went straight to the Recreation Room because the window there gives you a direct sight to the street where the "construction sight" and the women were.

This is when he got a clear view of what he said was this huge object hovering over the street about tree level. It was silent, black, or either a very dark color, and had a row of flashing, dancing, lights running along the bottom perimeter of it. He said what was also astonding is that the object was about as large as a football field. '

He also noticed that the street--which is usually busy--did not have ANY traffic at all. (I was born and raised there too so I know this particular street and it is ALWAYS busy--just like a freeway.) He said he then started running around inside the building to all his neighbor's, knocking on their doors trying to get someone to come and see the object--finally finding someone after approximately 15 minutes. He said he told this person, "Man, come and see this shit!" But when they got to the window, the craft was gone. He said the guy then asked him, "What shit?", and my friend said he told him, "Man...NEVER MIND" He saw this very same object back in 1979 while with a group of friends. That sighting lasted for about 10 minutes as a triangular-shaped object moved slowly in their field of vision from right to left.

I must say that these encounters are similar in that there is an eerie calm and that sometimes no-one seems to be around or is arousable when these experiences happen--obviously "they" set it up this way.
