Date of Sighting: May, 1973 (Exact Date Unknown)
Time of Sighting: After 10 PM CDT
Date Sighting Reported: February 2, 2007
Duration of Sighting: Unknown
Location of Sighting: Foreston, Minnesota (About 40 Miles North-Northwest of Minneapolis)
Latitude: 45.73 Degrees North
Longitude: 93.7 Degrees West
Description (In Witness’s Own Words): iI just was sitting in my pickup watching my brother and his girlfriend driving over hill when I turned to look over my left shoulder. I saw a big orange ball spiraling through the air coming toward me.
The next thing I know I was looking ahead and my brother’s headlights were coming over the hill and I turned to look over my left shoulder and the orange light was changing colors as it sat on the ground. When it turned white it shot straight up. It seemed only a minute since my brother had left but it was over two hours and I don’t remember a thing.
I have never reported this until now as I still wonder what happened to me that night.
Investigator’s Notes: The witness is describing a close encounter. However, the report is confusing in that it is unclear how the experience transpired. It sounds as if his brother left his location and then returned two hours later, but this is not known.
He also says that the object landed, but doesn’t mention any details about a landing. I will be writing the witness to obtain more information. Any updates will be posted.
