Location: Salem/Rolla (between), MO
Duration:5 to 10 seconds
|My wife, myself and my nephew were driving home to Salem MO from Rolla MO on highway 72 Friday night at about 9:45 at night. We were about halfway to Salem (around Lake Spring) and my wife very calmly said hey look its a UFO. At first I thought she was kidding because she does not belive in UFO's, but I looked to the left where she was motioning to and I saw a saucer shaped object just down and to the right of the Moon. It was a big full moon that night, and at first I thought that maybe it was just a cloud that was being illuminated by the moon.
After my eyes focused clearly on it and I got a good look I could tell it was a perfect saucer shape. It had no lights or anything it seemed to just be sitting there. There wasn't any detail, just sort of a dark saucer shape with part of it being illuminated by the moon. As we drove on the moon and the object became obscured from view by the treeline for a few seconds, and when it came back into view it was g! one.
Witness did not contact police nor any other UFO organization. No photos were taken.
