Posted: 8/12/2008
Location: Bemidji, MN
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Large bright orange object moving slowing and quietly and then faded into the sky.

We were sitting outside and it was almost dark. Coming from the west was a very bright orange light that was much larger than a plane light. We almost thought it was a plane on fire that was going to crash. When it went over us it looked like a light that was part of the craft was moving from left to right back and forth (like a search light). Then we knew it was not a plane because there was no sound and the light was too big and bright.

Then about 45 minutes later we saw it again coming from the west, then stopped in the sky turned toward the North and disappeared. It faded right in the sky.
