Location: Salem, MO
Shape: Light
Duration:25 minutes
As we were walking, I looked towards my house.and I pointed at a bright orange light...

Location of Sighting: We live 4 miles north of Salem, Missouri...the lights were ESE and SSE from our house...towards Salem.

I live across the road from my parents. My 8-year-old son and I walked my niece back to their house. We were walking back home and talking about going to the back yard to lay down on the trampoline to watch the stars since it was over 61 degrees F...and the sky was clear. As we were walking, I looked towards my house, which is south of my parents house...and I pointed at a bright orange light and said, "what is that?". I thought it was a really bright planet or something, but I didn't remember hearing anything about soon as I had thought that, it disappeared. My son witnessed that as well. As soon as that one had disappeared, another one appeared in the east. Very bright orange-white light. I turned around and told my other niece to run in and tell my parents to come outside and look. I saw it happen in 3 different places about 5 times before I ran inside to grab my camera and drive my car to my parents house. As I got onto their front deck, I saw another! d my brother, Luke, was able to see it just before it faded. He saw another one with me that was a lot dimmer and moved up. My dad, James, came outside and together we saw over 8 occurances in different locations. There were 3-4 times that we saw two lights grouped together. I tried to get a video of the lights, but all it captured was our voices...I will try to find a video editor and see if I can brighten the video. It was very interesting. I'd like to know if there are any other reports of this please. Thank you! Report received by MISSOURI INVESTIGATORS GROUP -
