Location: Big Kandiyohi Lake, MN
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Two bright white lights that stopped in midair and disappeared over the horizon within seconds

The summer of 1962, my girlfriend (high school - 17 years old)and I were at a friends cabin on Big Kandiyohi Lake. We were sitting on the cabin steps (dark out), when we saw a bright light shooting out of the sky. It was very bright, but had no trailing debris like a "falling star" has. We thought it was that at first, but then it stopped in mid air. It looked like a couple thousand feet above the lake and close to the middle. It sat there for about 2 seconds and then another light shot down and stopped parallel to it. They sat side by side for a second or so (no noise) and then both of the lights took off at the same time (side by side) and disappeared over the horizon at a high rate of speed. They disappeared in about a second. The light was bright white, like a halogen light is today.
