Location: Rapid City, SD
Shape: Other
Duration:10 Seconds
Looked towards a thunderstorm approaching from the west. First saw a bright shape in the sky in the northwest direction. The light was gone within 2 seconds 5 - 10 seconds later the light appeared over M-hill in Rapid City. It was not the sun this craft had a definite shape that was not a plane.

The object looked more like a half frisbee. It disappeared into the clouds and then reappeared in a different location. It did not have blinking lights like a plane would have had. The light was not from the sun, I do not know what I saw yet I know that I saw what I did. The second time it appeared it disappeared just as quickly back into the clouds. Talk about strange. I guess I can now say that I am one of those crazy people who has seen a UFO. I would like it explained to me, if there is a good explenation.
