Location: Winfield (5 mi South of), KS
Shape: Light
Duration:3 minutes
2 objects in close proximity high enought to reflect sun light travelling north then did a large 180 headed back south observed 3-4 min

My father, mother and I observed two objects in relitively close proximty to the naked eye that looked like satellites travel due north. I say the looked like satellites because they looked just like one at night only these objects we close to each other one behind the other and ive never observed two satellites travelling the same direction, same speed, so close to ach other. I know these were not aircraft because the light that was given off was not of a strobe or landing light nature. More of when light reflects off of metal and this makes since because the sun had set only an hour before so you only have to go so high before you reflect the suns light. What makes this case interesting is after a minute of observing these two objects travelling north the began to change direction and over the course of about 30 secs went from travelling due north to due south. About 15 secs before we lost sight my father and I both saw one of the objects split SE while the other object continued south. Dont really care if this is credible or not i know what we saw. No way it was a satellite because of the course change that was made by both objects and I know they were not aircraft because there was no strobe light and without that you cant see an aircraft at night with no moon:) 3rd sighting in 3 yrs for me here in SC KS and the 2nd for my father in 2 yrs. Many of the locals here have observed similar or different cases. Might not be a bad idea to check the area out if this website hasnt already. I myself am 28 yrs old and my parents well in their 50's this is not a prank/joke. Took the time to write this because I think you should know. What you do with this is on you.
