Location: Bloomington, MN
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 10 seconds
Characteristics: The object made a sound
My wife and I woke up to a loud noise flying directly over our house at 2:00 AM. It was a low humming sound accompanied by a repetitive rapping/banging sound. For lack of a better comparison, it sounded like a Harley-Davidson flying over our house at about 50 miles per hour, and it was much different than the sound of a helicopter as there was a sort of deep, clunking sound at the rate of 5-10 per second. As the first object passed there was another one that followed a few seconds later, as if one UFO was following closely behind the other. We had gotten 13 inches of snow that night so vehicles were non-existent. I woke up immediately thinking UFO as the sounds were so foreign to me and they were traveling over our house in a path perpendicular to the road. My wife thought it was a snow plow at the time, but woke up realizing the plows hadn't gone through at all yet, and didn't until 7:30 AM. I'm convinced this was a UFO and am curious to learn if anybody el! se heard anything that night, or better yet saw something.
