KSTP-TV posted some curious video captured in St. Paul under the headline 'Unidentified flying object spotted in Twin Cities.'
Here's KSTP's only explanation of the video so far:
Raw Video: Unidentified Flying Object Spotted In Twin Cities on the east side of St. Paul Monday night into Tuesday morning.
Two other videos of the same odd lights in the night sky showed up on YouTube, added by the same user.
In the first one, jump ahead to 55-second mark for the action to begin.
August 10th, 2010: I was working on a project when my sister freakishly calls me to go out side to look. I didn't see anything where I was but she insisted to come and pick me up to go and look. This is what we saw along with numerous neighbors. It just looks like some lights, but it was actually pretty creepy look. I don't know if it's some kind of crazy invention or an actual UFO, I guess we will have to see.
UPDATE 5:01 p.m.: Bring Me The News reports that St. Paul police say the lights came from a weather balloon with lights attached.

Ojibwe is now the official language of the White Earth Nation.
Chairwoman Erma Vizenor says the official designation makes Ojibwe a priority language on the northwestern Minnesota reservation.
Vizenor says it's critical the native language survive and thrive.
"The Ojibwe language is the foundation to our culture, traditions, history, and spirituality. It is who we are," says Vizenor.
The designation of an official language is expected to help encourage more young tribal members to learn the native language.
