Follow-up Report from Brian Vike:

Hi Brian!

To respond to your questions:

The sky that night was not overcast but it was not perfectly clear either. We don't remember seeing the moon. It was not raining. That is why we thought it so strange that the power had bleeped all over from here to at least Finland (close to Emo).

The thing we seen was in the northeast sky from our home. It was just above the tree line as We at first thought it might be flames.

The UFO seemed to hover, it would move slightly to the left and then back again to a relatively stationary position.

The area this happened appeared to be over Kakagi Lake. There are no air force bases or military bases. There are not many cabins out that way either. There are a couple of airbases in Nestor Falls as it is a tourist area. These bases house bush planes that only fly in the daytime to remote camps our fly out fishing lakes.

We did not hear any sound. The most unusual movement seemed to be when it disappeared. It seemed to just be gone!

We do not believe there were any aircraft in the area at that time unless there was a jet overhead. No one else seems to have seen it. It was 2:35 in the morning.

We believe it disappeared because it moved away ...fast.

People seem to think we are nuts..... but we will always wonder about what we saw.

We find ourselves looking in that same area every night now.
