I used to live on the outskirts of HotDish Hell, MN in the country. It was a 6 acre plot about 8 miles from the town line.
One of the things i enjoyed doing was taking a drive on the country roads. i was new to this area, so everything i saw was fresh and interesting.
One evening, right at dusk, i noticed what i thought was a star. So i pulled over to take a look at it because it seemed awful low for a star. As i looked at it with binoculars, i noticed it was a triangular-shaped chrome aircraft. It’s hull was smooth and completely reflective. It was pointed straight up and down and it was just hovering in place. I looked from west to east and noticed that there were several of these aircraft in a perfect line as far as the eye could see in either direction.
However odd that it seemed, that these aircraft could sit perfectly still, in a perfect line from one end of the horizon to the other; i dismissed them as military aircraft since there was an air base in Sioux City, IA 2 hrs to the southwest.
Several years later, around my youngest daughter’s birthday in April; i was flying kites with my youngest. It was a partly cloudy sky around mid-day. One of the gifts i had bought her was a kite and we decided on that windy day that we would go fly it at the soccer fields south of town.
My daughter is an expert kite flyer. She got it pretty high, and watching the wonder on her face was probably the most satisfying feeling for a parent.
After a half hour, as i was watching her kite, i noticed 6 or 7 objects in a “V” formation flying from south to north. At first i thought they were Canadian geese, but as they approached our area i realized they were too big to be geese. Then i thought maybe they were jet fighters, but as they got above us, i noticed they were completely spherical in shape. I couldn’t believe what i was seeing. So I asked my daughter to look. She scanned the sky where i was pointing. She finally saw them as they approached a bank of clouds.
Just as she said that, they broke their formation and flew in erratic patterns impossible to be any aircraft. Then, one by one they disappeared into the cloud and we never saw them again.
The incident really shook me. Especially with my daughter confiming that she also saw it. Within a couple months of that i was to get on a plane to California for a family vacation. But i really didn’t want to be up in the air with those things.
I contacted the group M.U.F.O.N. (Mutual Unidentified Flying Object Network) to report it. The agent for southern Minnesota had tried several times to set up a time to meet with me and talk about the “sighting” but something always came up on his end that it never happened. I had decided that it wasn’t worth the effort. i had no photographs, or video. I had a flip phone at the time with a horrible camera on it, and i was so awestruck that i didn’t even think to snap any attempt at photographic evidence.
