Location: Springfield, MO
Shape: Oval
Duration:45 minutes
Two Brightly lit craft observed around Springfield Missouri.

At 04:00 hours an oval object appeared to the northeast of Springfield mo. It had what appeared to be an oval shape and had strobe lights that changed from red, green, blue, and white. While sitting in the same spot for the first fifteen minutes, from the edges of the craft it emitted round bright white balls of light. These balls would come out of the craft horizontally then disappear altogether. This happened a total of four times then no more came out.

I called a friend to confirm what I was seeing, and she saw another one to the south of Springfield. Oval in shape but turned upright. With the same colored strobes as the one above. No balls of light came from the second craft.

To ensure it was not moving I placed a couple of pieces of tape on the glass surrounding the object and watched from the same location. The stars were of course slowly dropping below the tape line but not this object.

The one to the south of Springfield had a bright flash that was produced several times from the craft. Similar to a camera flash at night.

We watched both objects from 04:00 hours until they went dark suddenly at around 04:47. We could not figure out if they left or just went dark and remained in the same location.
