Posted: 12/3/2004
Location: St. Paul (southern part), MN
Shape: Formation
Duration: 7minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
three craft travel in formation above Minnesota

six of us were lying on the ground in a thinly wooded park after dark watching the sky. One of us saw a moving object in the sky and pointed it out. I thought it was a human-made satelite at first, however as we watched two other objects aproached it in a triangular formation. The objects appeared as white lights, about the size that an average star would appear. The three craft traveled slowly accross the sky for several minutes, then quickly sped up and traveled outside of the area that we could see.

((NUFORC Note: Date is approximate. We have looked at the photographs provided, and our impression is that the pinkish object is the contrail behind a high-altitude jet. The sky is still light in the photo, and the object is to the west of the witnesses. PD))
