Location: Blue Springs, MO
|MISSOURI INVESTIGATORS GROUP REPORT: Observed on west side of Blue Springs, MO - Sitting outside facing west watching the night sky, noted a single light appear traveling from my south moving NE, approximately 70 degrees to the horizon. Initially thought it was a satellite (have seen many and usually follow them across the night sky) as this was a small, dim blueish-white light. Object was moving very fast in a straight line with no deviation (direction of downtown Kansas City, MO), however it seemed to move faster than most satellites I have seen. No sound heard. Light then slowly turned red for 1-2 seconds (slower than a strobe light/anti-collision light on aircraft) and then back to blueish-white. This occured 3 more times before object became too difficult to see (distance and city lights in the distance). Light appeared to dissapear twice, as if passing through or above clouds (skies were clear from what I could tell, may have been very thin, high cloud! s in the area). Possible sources could have been satellite (was very similar in color, size, and altitude but this was traveling faster and I have never seen them emit red light), meteor (no tail, trailing light, or change in intensity), or military aircraft/fighter (have seen these before with a single, fast blinking red light, but to the best of my knowledge these do not emit a dim blueish-white light when moving away from viewing position).
