|Blue and Green lights in Night Sky
I am a 41 year old married male, professionally employed. The event took place while returning home from dropping my 12 year old son off with his mother for an out of town trip. My wife was with me in the car, but she didn't see what I saw as she had been watching for deer on the road (it was well after dark at the time).
As I was driving south on Hwy 63, approaching a turn off onto Hwy 124, approximately 12 miles N of Columbia, MO, I happened to notice in the sky a grouping of blue and green lights. The lights were moving very fast, east to west and only remained visible for a few seconds.
My first thought was that of a shooting star, but there was no tail to these lights. The grouping of lights were either triangular or rectangular in shape and when it ended, the lights seem to just shut off, rather than fade or diminish in intensity.
