Two objects near downtown Minneapolis, a third comes to call them away.

I was on the rooftop bar of The Solara, a resturant in downtown Minneapolis, MN, with my entire family one evening. We were sitting at a round table, I was facing out toward the city, and I could see most of the towers in the city. I was visiting with my family and looking out at the buildings, when I saw a yellow/gold object kind of glide out from behind the tower I was looking at.

The way it moved almost looked like it was floating on water or something as it came in and out of view from behind this skyscraper. Just really smooth hovering, gliding, deliberate motion. It was coming out from the left side of the building and going back behind it. It never crossed to the other visible side of the building kept coming out the left side. It did this over and over for a minute.

The distance was a mile away I would guess. It did not look very large. This object did this for a couple minutes until another object came into view. Almost looked like it appeared, or went from very small to visible, or like it came from far away into view to look just like the first one my family and I have been watching now for a few minutes.

Remind you, this rooftop was completely full, but I didn’t see anyone else looking at it, but we were. The two objects stayed for another 30 seconds or so, kind of hovered around a bit until a 3rd object came down, almost like it was telling the other 2 to come back.

I saw all three there for about 8 seconds, the third a bit smaller because it was further away, until all three took off. When they took off they got smaller and smaller like they flew away very, very quickly. They didn’t just disappear.
