Duration:2 minutes
Bright red lights moving in steady progression

We were working night shift at Paper mill. 1 guy mentioned on the radio that there was some red lights in the sky. I was with a co worker in the pick-up truck and got out to look.

We saw about 7 red lights in a triangle shape traveling from west to east moving towards Duluth. There was 2 sets of 3 lights in the back with a somewhat larger light in the front. All the lights were moving together, although I couldn't tell if it was one large object. If it was one object, IT WAS HUGE.

My coworker said there was a low pitched noise but it wasn't loud like a jet or something. I know these were not airplane lights, (I used to work avionics for a local airplane manufacturer). These lights moved in a steady progression and we watched it until the lights faded to the east.

I also saw what looked like a streak of light shoot from the object, which looked like a shooting star. These lights were not blurry but quite bright and crisp.

The night was clear and I dont think the moon was out; so it was dark.
