Location: near St.Peters/St.Charles but too high to tell, MO
Shape: Light
Duration:3 min
Summary : I was shooting off bottle rockets w/ my friend and i looked up and saw a bright blue light , way too high to be a firework , and too bright to be an airplane.

I was shooting off bottle rockets with my friend. I looked up and saw a very distant (vertical distance) ,but it seemed that it was large , blue , hazy circle shape , off to the south. it was a color a little lighter than cobalt. It looked like it was staying still. My friends mom was on my deck and i asked her if she saw that and she said yes. i asked my friend ,who was shooting off bottle rockets because i wasnt at the mom (ie turns), just as i said look at it and it sounded like he said yes , i looked away and then it was gone. it was way too high to be a firework, and way too bright to be a plane or helicopter, plus i couldnt hear any noise like that because my neighbors had stopped shooting off stuff for about 30 min. it was high enough that i couldn't tell if it was over St.Charles County,or over St.Lous County because we are very close.
