Reported: 2/23/2012 9:42:03 AM 09:42
Posted: 3/13/2012
Location: Duluth, MN
Shape: Oval
Duration:Total? Maybe around 10 mi
A minor amber color trail, (from where we were) extremely slow movement, and an odd amber coloration like the "Phoenix Lights".

Well. After just hearing about the "Phoenix Lights" on March 13th 1997, my father and myself recall sitting outside one clear summer night in 2009 maybe around 9:30 (Your ZULU time or Military time confuses me a little bit, so might as well be sure on this.) We saw only one oval shaped Amber colored... object, in lack of a better word, about 4-5 miles west of where we were. It had sat in one spot for a minute or two, then we noticed it was slowly moving around, and from where we were sitting it was almost not even noticeable. Then, it disappeared for about two minutes, slowly fading into the night sky. All of a sudden it slowly reappears, and does literally the same exact movement we saw. It was almost like a deja vu moment. After a few more minutes it had disappeared again, and that was the last we saw of it. Oddly enough (This really doesn't matter, but my father and I had found it rather amusing since what we had seen prior to walking into the house.) the! film "Contact" was on our television. I hope you do not find this report a "fake" or a "joke", due to it being as real as anything we have seen or felt or even heard today.

If you want to do an interview my email is here: ((e-address deleted)) If you decide to read this, I do hope to hear back from someone, maybe someone from Minnesota, preferably in town, but oh well if not.

Thank you for taking this time to read this. - ((name deleted))

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. There is not much that could be gained by conducting an interview, we feel, approximately three years after the incident. PD))
