A Minnesota witness at St. Cloud is hoping additional reports are filed for a “broad daylight” sighting of a dark, square object hovering over Highway 10, according to November 29, 2012, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The witness was driving north on County Road 8 into St. Cloud about 4:30 p.m. on November 14, 2012, when the object was first noticed.
“Above the tree line in the direction of Highway 10 I saw a hovering, square object,” the witness stated. “It was dark and looked mechanical, reminded me of a transformer type object (weird comparison, but true).”
The sighting was short.
“I watch the object hover for about 4 minutes and then it disappeared as I drove behind a small group of trees.”
Although the witness reports that the “Blue Angels were flying into town that day,” the object seen was something else.
“This was 100 percent not an airplane, helicopter or any other flying vehicle that I have seen.”
The witness is hoping others come forward with more information.
“Since it was in broad daylight, I am sure other people saw this too. If you did, please comment.”

November 14, 2012, 4:30 p.m., St. Cloud, MN – Dark object hovering over Highway 10 around 4:30 PM. Case 44228.
I was driving north on CO Ro 8 to St. Cloud to pick-up my daughter from daycare. I was watching the sky because I read in the paper that the Blue Angels were flying into town that day. Above the tree line in the direction of Hwy 10 I saw a hovering square object. It was dark and looked mechanical, reminded me of a transformer type object (weird comparison, but true). I watch the object hover for about 4 minutes and then it disappeared as I drove behind a small group of trees.
This was 100% not an airplane, helicopter or any other flying vehicle that I have seen. Since it was in broad daylight and I am sure other people saw this too.
