Location: Foley, MN
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 5 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
strange bright light fades away

it was night a number of years ago I was at a friend of my dad's farm helping my dad unload a trailor. I noticed a very bright light off in the distance that was moving very fast "moving in southernly direction"(no aircraft that fly that low can go that fast). I watched it move for a min or 2 then had to look away for a moment to help my dad with something (he was to busy with what he was doing to pay attention). when I looked back it had turned an exact 90 degrees and was heading west. I continued to watch it move for another min or so until it STOPPED moving (didn't slow down... just stopped). the bright light then bobbed a few times then faded out.

sorry I can't even remember the exact year because it has been too long... 96-98 probably
