Location: Bellefontaine (St. Louis County), MO
Shape: Chevron
Coming home from taking my son to scouts, noticed bright lights in the western sky. The lights were too bright, too close and too low to be airplane lights.

I pulled into my driveway and saw that they were stationary. The first one flew over the house behind me. It had three big white lights which changed to little red and white blinking lights. The second one flew directly over me. It looked light a plane without a fueselage. The lights were the same. The third one remained in original position for an hour. Called my daughter to see. Called Lambert Airport. Tower called back; they had two faint stationary targets on radar. (Objects were between witness and Lambert, due west.)Jennings and Moline police saw objects. Said they would send up helicopter. Commercial aircraft in area could hear engine noise and tell difference. Could see helicopter but copter did not see object which was above him. [Uploaded by inv. NOTE: This report was taken March 1985. Neither wit- ness had ever heard of the Hudson Valley Sightings or a triangular shaped UFO. The mother drew a "classic" boomerang/chevron. The daughter drew a triangle resembling the drawing of Millstadt, Illinois Police officer Craig Stevens,(See NIDS report this web site for Stevens' picture.) which greatly differed from her mother's depiction.]

((NUFORC Note: We believe that there were many sightings reported in Missouri in 1985 of anomalous objects.))
