|Strange craft drits erratically through the southern Missouri sky.
This object was spotted last night as we sat at our campground in Steelville Missouri after a canoe trip. The object appear to be round and a distance from us. We saw red lights at times and green lights at other times, however it did not function like a jetliner. It darted strangely back and forth in the sky, almost like a zig-zag at times, other times it appeared to be circling slowly.
Three of us sat and watched for an hour and a half as it drifted around, eventually we lost site of it behind the tree. It's flight path was eerie, at times a red halo appeared around the object. It would move quickly to the right, stop, and then drift in another direction.
I thought it may be a weather balloon but after researching them online today don't feel that it was. I know there are 2 military bases in proximity to the area we were camping in and questioned whether it may be some time of government craft. Whatever it was, it was strange and unlike anything I! 've ever seen in the night sky.
