Posted: 4/14/2009
Location: Waukee, IA
Shape: Unknown
Duration:2-3 minutes
pulsating, glowing orange object floating to the northwest of waukee, ia

I did not have my glasses on and by the time I found them, it was too far off. I am very familiar with air craft, because I grew up with them, with my father being in the Air Force for 25 years.

What I saw was this, a pulsating orange glow, with a red intermitent light, no sound at all and was flying at about 3,000 feet in the air. It was to the West over Waukee, IA, traveling North West and traveling very slow.

Because I did not have my glasses on, I was unable to see the exact structure, but I do know it was not a plane or a helicopter. It was low enough, that I should have been able to hear it. Were there any reportings in this area, on 3/19/2009 or 3/20/2009.

I tried to wake my wife up, but I couldn't get her up in time and she thought I was crazy. I just happened to be closing the bedroom window, as it had cooled down so much overnight.
