Location: Kansas City, MO
Shape: Cylinder
Duration:20 Minutes
I and four other people watched a very large cylinder slowly move across the noon sky and enter a long, narrow cloud through one end, not to reappear again.

About noon on the 21st of Oct. 1999, I was driving towards the west in my truck when I noticed a very bright object in front of me about 20 degrees up from the horizon. The object looked almost rectangular, it's width appeared 1/3 that of it's length. Upon closer inspection, I could see that the object was a very bright white. It's ends were rounded. Upon arriving at a middle school, the object was still visible. Three additional adults joined me, to witness the sighting. During the time we watched it, two airliners flew above and below, and were dwarfed by it's size. Slowly the craft moved South, and entered the end of a long narrow cloud. We waited several minutes, but the object never emerged. Upon speaking to a friend later about the incident, he confirmed that he too had seen such an object at approximately the same time of day, and location as I had.
