Strange Minnesota Lights Explanation.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the lights were from a casino. PD))

This is not a report but an explanation for the Minnesota lights reported on Aug 9th. If the picture is to the south, it is most definitely lights from the Mystic Lake Casino. They have a light formation that is on every night. It is in the shape of a teepee but makes the ring formation on the clouds at night. Do a google image search for "mystic lake casino lights" and you will see. I see this from my home in Prior Lake all the time as the casino is 3 miles away. Lake Minnetonka is about 15 miles to the north. If the cloud deck was unusually high that night, the lights would be visible that far north and look exactly like they do in the photos on your sight.
