Location: Minneapolis, MN
Shape: Light
Duration:1 hour+
Very bright light under clouds that isn't moving.

Very bright light shining in western sky about 45 degrees up. There is a haze of light cloud cover, and no stars or celestial bodies visible. Light seems to be just below clouds.

There is a slight haze around the light, which could be due to the haziness of the clouds. A couple low-flying airplanes have passed below it.

It is not moving like a plane, but seems to wobble a little bit and light changes intensity, yet is very very bright. First explanation is that it could be Venus, but that would be lower to the horizon than this light.

A friend with a telescope says he saw one bright light with 2 smaller lights on it too.
