Location: Des Moines, IA
Shape: Light
Duration:hour or so
several moving lights over des moines, iowa . blended in sky as if they were stars til they started moving

thought i saw a glimpse shootin star headed east around 4am hr later while walking west by river , me and my girlfriend both saw really bright lite in sky . was really low . would have guessed it to possibly be over newton ,ia by distance. it slowly made its way up and east til it was just gone by 6am. now at same time this was happening happened to see what appeared to be a star so i had thot seperate northwest of the really brite one. Half of it went southeastern and other went south . but all the while lightly glimming slowly weaving kinda like a worm does. then i and my girl lookin up to sky in disbelief saw more some west high moving south and east others n.west doing lite interlaces or small circles with one another. slowly they disapeared . the thing is they blended in with stars. to many to really know for certain how many there were. last to be seen was that really brite one that had no explanation other than unusual. its not a star and while these ! flew around the sky we did see small mancrafted air planes with blinkin lites flying too. dont know wether they seen objects or there destinations . one plane headed west to east pretty high up to tell color or specifics , another plane bigger came from southwestern nite sky i believe . it was lil bit cloudy this mornin. beyond this , i dont know . really dont care , figured those who mite want and need to know would want the truth , so coming from an agnostic athiest , dated 2012 aug.5th, our morning skys had flying dots or ufos or lost gods with flashlites or super lightning bugs flying around . there u have it. do what u want with this info , guess is good as mine . watch skies over iowa or near there . dunno about no fireballs or meteors. just what i saw . now u know what i seen .
