School bus size UFO hovering over river.

On Jun 1, 2008, an older woman and her son were camped in a tent on a slight rise overlooking the Gasconade River at the Arlington Campground. A thunderstorm had just moved throught the area and as they exited their tent to check for storm damage between 02:30-3:00 A, they noticed an object suddenly appear over the river.

The object was 125-150 yards from them and hovering about 20 feet over the water. It looked like a flatened football. It was a beautyful metalic blue with a series of dull red, green and pretty blue lights around the edge. The whole thing was enveloped in aqua blue fog which also lit up the water beneath it. It was "bigger than a school bus"and was 5 inches long at arms length. They watched it for 2-3 minutes when it raised up an additional 30 feet, hovered monentarily then departed to the northwest at a 45 degree angle at fantastic speed.
