Minnesota witness alerted to UFO in building reflection

A Minnesota witness reported watching a bullet-shaped UFO hovering next to a Minneapolis building that quickly accelerated to the northeast after first seeing its reflection, according to testimony in Case 61617 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was a front seat passenger in a carpool on a clear and bright day on October 28, 2014, when the object was first noticed.

“I was looking out of the passenger window and idly ran my eyes up the side of a mirrored building approximately 15-degrees to the right of my central viewpoint,” the witness stated. “As I followed the building up, I noticed the reflection of the craft in the side of the building.”

The witness turned her attention away from the building and saw the actual craft.

“It was silver, shiny, and somewhat bullet/chevron-shaped with three lights in the rear of the craft – two red, one white. There were no visible windows. No other object was in the area – again, the sky was clear blue.”

The object then moved away quickly.

“The craft remained stationary for the time of about one minute, and then accelerated to the northeast, over downtown Minneapolis. There was no noise from the craft as well. I was quite stunned, then surprise as I realized I had just witnessed an unexplained object.”

The witness provided one illustration of what the object looked like. Minneapolis is the county seat of Hennepin County, population 400,070.
