Location: Springfield, MO
Shape: Oval
Duration:<10 sec.
Oval craft with two sets of dual blinking white lights over Springfield, MO vanished overhead.

Oval craft with two sets of dual blinking white lights on each side was seen passing overhead just west of the star Vega. The craft was traveling slowly east to west when suddenly it just blinked out after watching it for less than 10 seconds. I was unsure whether it moved away quickly to the north after the lights disappeared. The weather was clear and warm. No aircraft sound was heard. This object was not in the regular flight path of the commercial jets along following I-44 to the north of my home in SW Springfield. *Peter, I'm a UFO investigator for Ozarks Area UFO Research Group (OARG) and you have permission to use my email address ( ufosource@email.com ) for other possible witnesses. I'm in contact with b.becker in central Missouri. We are starting a Mo. Investigator List and we would like to investigate any cases you receive. You may contact either of us at any time. I have three other area investigators who can assist us in case load. If we can assist you in any manner possible just let us know. This sighting was similar to a sighting of lighted oval craft seen in Feb.,1996 near Conway, MO by my wife and I coming home from StLouis on I-44 except there were four or five other craft in the sky that night.
