Shape: Sphere
Duration:2 min
spherical white flying object flying low

Was close to sunset time. Occurred between 17:00 and 18:00 (5-6pm central). Flying very low. Had a low humming sound. For a plane/helicopter to be that low, it would sound louder. Was sherical or oval in shape. Expected to see a tail on a plane if it were a plane, but saw none and it wasn't a plane. Had flashing red light and two other white lights on it. It was southwest bound. Appeared to be light in color (white?) Watched it travel southwest. Was flying in a horizontal position and then appeared to travel at a slanted angle. Flew behind tree line and continued to southest destination and beyond tree and house lines. It traveled at a very slow pace the whole time. I chose to write this because there is another one here that is similar and could be related to this one. Siting was at my house outside my window across from KOMU TV station south of Columbia by Hwy 63.
