Location: Fridley, MN
Shape: Cigar
Duration:3 minutes
30-40 foot cigar shaped object.

traveling west on west moore lake rd.I noticed what I first thought to be a small aircraft. This was within 5 miles of a airport. It appeared to be moving about half the speed it should fly. this craft was only 500 to 800 feet up. so I looked closely.

craft did to not appear to have wings, so I looked for a tail, no tail either.

at this point I was looking through small bare trees, though still clear to view.

I slowed car to 15 mph and viewed. This was clearly not a plane. It was a cigar shaped bright stainless steel looking craft. moving perhaps 50 mph in bright sunshine.

I thought, wow, I am actually seeing a ufo. no mistake here, clear as a bell.

At this point I pass Fridley High school, so I sped up to get up to stop sign where there is clear view for several miles. It was gone. could not say if it disappeared or sped off.

There is no doubt here. a clear sunny daylight sighting of a shining cigar shaped craft 30 to 40 feet long. 5 to 8 feet thick, no windows I could detect.

In the span of ten seconds out of view, it was gone. No balloon, no drone, no remote plane, or any other simple thing to explain it. I saw something not explainable.
