UFO Sighting in Maple Grove, Minnesota on 2008-12-22 20:15:00 - Very close view of large ufo on evening of winter solstice
I was driving northwest on highway 81 just outside of osseo (by subway) about 8:15 pm on 12/22/2008. it was snowing lightly and i was going about 40 mph. i then noticed a very bright flash in the northwest sky (similar to the flash when the ship "jumps" on the battlestar gallactica tv show). after the flash a bright light was visible. after a few seconds of remaining stationary, the light moved a long distance (at least a mile) in an arc motion. this movement only took a couple seconds to complete. the light was now a visible solid object hovering above a factory building located about 200 yards southeast of the intersection of hwy 81 and zachary ave. as i drove about a mile to reach this intersection the object moved the 200 yards to reach the intersection. i calculate that means that the object was only moving about 10 mph. when i reached the intersection the object was directly over the southeast side of the intersection. i then stopped in the right turn lane, rolled my window open and looked at the object. it made absolutely no sound and it was only about 100 feet overhead and about 50 feet southeast of me. it was rectangular in shape, about 100 feet long, 40 feet wide, and 15 feet high. it had 3 dull round lights (one on each end and one near center). it also had a number of antenna like structures coming out of the top side. the object had a very sturdy "barge like" appearance. when i realized what i was looking at i became very frightened and got away as quickly as possible. i called into a local radio show (concerning the paranormal and ufos) a few years later, and they told me 4 other motorists that were there had called in to report the same sighting.
