An unidentified pair of lights appeared and hovered above a freighter travelling across Lake Superior.

Erik Rintamaki was travelling though Paradise, Michigan, on June 12 when he spotted a couple of bright lights in the sky above him.

Whipping out his camera to film, one of the lights dipped out of view before appearing minutes later.

The bright yellow orbs continued to float high above the freighter for more than an hour as Erik watched on stunned.

Erik said: “The lights lasted for over an hour.

“And when seen through binoculars looked like plasma.

“I did face my truck towards them and flashed my lights at them and the immediately came in our direction at a very high rate of speed.

“These were not Chinese lanterns or flares as it was windy and raining.”
