July 16th 2008 : Chaska, Minnesota

Chaska, Minnesota A Bright Yellow/Orange Light

Date: July 16, 2008
Time: 2:00 a.m.

Hi, As I was doing research to see if what I saw was similar to what others have seen, I came across the postings of Excelsior and Shorewood, MN sightings. I live about 9-miles south and though it was 12 days after the 4th, I am curious to know if what I had seen has been reported elsewhere.

At about 2am on the 16th my husband and I went up to bed in our home in Chaska, MN along highway 41 and the Minnesota River. We both have windows behind our heads and I turned on my side facing the southwest sky and saw a bright light outside my window. My first thought was, "wow, that must be a planet" because it's so bright. It was only about 2 seconds of looking at this bright light when all of a sudden it looked as though it had turned and what was a bright yellow/orange light quickly faded to a blurry orange and moved to the north slowly for about 2 seconds and faded into nothing in front of my eyes. The whole event was about 4 seconds. As soon as it disappeared I blurted, "OH MY GOD". I tried to explain to my husband and he asked if it was a hallucinating but it wasn't. I wasn't afraid just amazed.

I have lived in Chaska for about 10 months and have a great view of all the stars in the sky and have seen plenty of shooting stars, helicopters, and airplanes, and this was neither of those.

Please let me know if anyone shares a similar experience of a bright light that fades to nothing and disappears. Thanks.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
