|Dark Rectangle sighting in heavly populated St. Louis county flying low and silent
Traveling south bound on Hwy 67 towards the Hazelwood border I noticed a Florissant police officer had a motorist pulled over to the right of the roadway. Upon closer examination I noticed the officer walking back to his car and saw him looking towards the sky near a grocery store. I looked towards that direction and saw a huge black rectangle with large windows on the side. The interior of the object was light up well enough that I could tell the mass of the object was very large. I would estimate the object to be as wide as a five lane highway or at least 100 yards wide. I seem to remember seeing other hyper bright ( xeon or blueish in color like the new BMW cars headlights ) lights on the exterior of the object.
The object passed about 200 feet off the ground nearly directly over the Schnucks store flew over hwy 67 and out of my sight. The object made no sound as it flew overhead. As it passed I noticed movement inside of the back windows of the object and thought I saw someone move from the interior portion of the craft to look out the window ( perhaps to see the lights of the police car ). My immediate impression was that this was some sort of military stealth blimp. I do recall other colored lights on the exterior of the object, but can’t be certain of the configuration or more specifics because my attention was diverted to the large window and the movement I discussed.
The next day I told my friends I had visited that evening and my then girlfriend about my experience. I hadn’t reported it to anyone else initially until I saw a documentary on the police officers who followed a similar object on the exact same night. This year I contacted Darryl Barker (a local producer who has a website on the incident) here in St. Louis and spoke with him about my sighting.
