craft with a ring of white lights around it...
Bloomington, Minnesota - May, 2021
Two friends and I saw this at 00:41 (12:41). We were in Bloomington, MN and looking in the direction of the city (North).
This object moved slowly and silently across the entire sky. It didn’t dip down to follow the curve of the atmosphere, but instead seemed to travel in a straight path at a fixed height until fading out as if it seemed to fly off into space, where we could no longer see it due to sheer distance.
I took a video of it with my iPhone and it managed to make it across half of the entire sky in 2 minutes and 9 seconds. It appears to possibly increase its speed around 1 minute into the 2 minute video.
It was a craft with a ring of white lights around it, tilted to the right and hovered for a moment then starting moving to the right (North East). No idea what it is. It does not appear to be Starlink.
I have 20/20 vision and have some Military (US Army(E4)) experience. I have seen a lot of types of planes and helicopters, blimps, weather balloons and munitions, tracer rounds and drones at night before.
I grew up in a remote area with little to no light pollution and I am familiar with satellites and the space station seen from earth. I have seen many shooting stars and other natural events.
This is my first time seeing anything in the sky that I cannot explain and I’ve never seen anything paranormal before.
I’m very interested in the UFO phenomenon, but tend to be a very skeptical person. I have tried hard to explain this and haven’t been able to.
