One of those orange fireballs, but rectangular in shape.

Experienced night sky watcher, who has never seen a UFO before, but tracks planets and constellations and has watched the northern lights and tracked satellites moving across the sky many times. Tonight I saw one of those orange fireballs, but rectangular in shape, like a burning sheet of paper flying quickly and silently across the sky.

It passed over Como Lake in St. Paul from south to north at an altitude one would usually associate with helicopters (a few hundred feel up). According to the weather service the air was calm. The fireball passed over the sky and disappeared over the trees to the north in about 20 seconds.
