Number of witnesses: 14-20

Weather Conditions: Clear
Description: We were having our August long weekend fireworks out at Larry's Cabins Trailer Park on Sandstone Lake. Sandstone is about 40 air miles from Thunder Bay, Ontario in the middle of the wilderness. No electricity in our area. About 10 miles from the Minnesota border (USA).
The object came out of the south very slowly and one thought asked if it was a planet, but it was moving ever so slowly and it was much larger than any star in the sky, much larger. The object got larger as it got closer, and somewhat brighter, though not much. It moved slowly, steadily north until it was above the lake (no flashing aircraft lights, no white lights, just glowing orange), it stayed in one spot for a minute and then simply moved east at a very rapid speed and disappeared. At least 14-20 people saw it and talked about it that night and the next day.
TV/Radio: I'm wondering if anyone else from other lakes might have seen it. I've never seen anything like it, as others there have not as well.
UFOINFO Note: As with other similar reports I asked the witness to have a look at the UFO Balloons website to see if this is what might have been seen and received the following reply:
Thank you for your response. There is no way that it is one of these balloons. The direct path, the controlled speed at which it approached could not possibly be a ballon. The 90 degree directional change to the east, coupled with the acceleration as it left the lake area indicate a controlled craft of some sort.
