Location of Sighting: Clear Lake, Minnesota (See Map)
Description: I went out on my deck to have a cigarette. It was 10 degrees F with a cold 10 MPH breeze. The sky was clear and stars were everywhere. As I looked in an east-northeast direction at about a 25 degree angle a bright object with unusual lights got my attention. I distinctly saw a three dimensional object with colors on each point. It was an icosahedron. I had to look it up. (An icosahedron is a regular polyhedron with 20 identical equilateral triangular faces, 30 edges and 12 vertices.) It is one of the five Platonic solids. It has five triangular faces meeting at each vertex. Each edge on the shape almost appeared to be lighted as the ambient light reflected off the surfaces. On every one of the vertices there was a colored light, one of four colors in no particular order. The colors were blue, orange, red and yellow. The object did not appear to be moving nor did the lights blink. I got my Nikon D-50 with a 500 mm lens and set it on a tripod. The view finder confirmed what I saw. Unfortunately the camera wouldn’t capture the image in auto mode. In manual mode, I got some images using about a one second exposure. They are not the best, but one image does validate what I saw. As far as the other image the appearance could be due to camera movement? I don’t have a clue.
