I went out to have a smoke, like i do on a daily and nightly basis. the weather was amazing today (aug. 29, 2020. 11:45pm) i love the fall and cooler weather, today was the first day like that of the season here in the twin cities mn area! i was slowly strolling and looking up at the stars, it was completely clear, quiet, no air traffic, i was just enjoying the night. i continued looking at the stars as i passed a large pine tree. i looked up into the sky behind the tree and saw a perfect sphere/circle, bright! brighter then anything else in the sky. i waited for it to blink or flash or move (like a plane or satellite or something), but nothing, it stayed completely still, silent, and brighter then anything i've ever seen in the sky besides lighting. aftet maybe 5-10 seconds it just vanished, like someone had hit the off button or shut off the lights, nothing....It was there then as i blinked it was gone. i waited searching the sky, trying to find a logical explanation, that is how i was raised and that is what i have learned in my collegiate experience and my military career. after 10 minutes i went back inside and immediately shared what i had seen with my wife. i would like to point out that the weather was perfect, no clouds, no storms, completely still and peaceful evening.... this is my first, i guess "experience " with something like this that i could not explain with logic and deductive reasoning.
