Location: Sherburn, MN
Shape: Triangle
Duration:1.5 to 2 minutes
object spotted, triangular in shape, 3 glowing red/amber lights, silent, 25 to 30 feet in length, made movements not possible to planes

I was awake and surfing the web when my dog who was in his cage at the back of the house started making a strange yelping sound. I went to the back to see what was causing him to behave this way. I opened the back door to see what was going on and at first I did not see anything out of the ordinary.

Then out of the corner of my eye I noticed movement at about the 10 o clock position. There was an object in the sky hovering pretty low I would say at the height of about a 7 story building. I would estimate that it was around 25 to 30 feet in length. It was triangular in shape and had a faint glowing light of a light red/amber color in each corner of the object (3 lights total). It made no sound at all, it just seemed to be stuck there not moving at all.

I was becoming rather fearful at this strange sight, but my curiosity got the better of me and I stepped off my back deck/step to get a better look and just as I did this the object began to move. It moved slowly at first still without making a sound then it started doing something really strange it seemed to vanish and then reappear at a different place, it did this for a short time (less than 10 seconds) then shot off at a very high speed to the north. All the while it did not make a single sound. I was unable to see what color the object was but there were reflections of city lights on it so it was a shiny surface.

The shape as I said was triangular but not perfectly triangular it was like the points of the triangle were cut off.
