Location: Des Moines, IA
Shape: Oval
Duration:three hours
object first appeared to be aircraft with search lights on but the closer I got to it the more I realized it was something else

I was driving west on I-80 from iowa city to des moines and noticed what appeared at first to be a helicopter with its search light on or an airplane with its landing lights on. I got closer to the object and and noticed it could not be a airplane because it would of landed at the dsm airport. This object kept its lights on for over two hours that I saw it for which seemed very strange to me. It continued west north west past ames iowa when I turned off the interstate. The closer I got to dsm the further it got away from me.
