|Red cigar rectangular light in Neosho, mo.
Standing at our private ball field I noticed a red rectangular cigar shaped light hovering at aircraft height but not moving. I was looking for deer that sometimes graze the grass in the ball field when it cought my eye. I didn't think anything of it until it dawned on me it wasn't moving nor did it have any blinking lights on it. It was average red brightness but what happened next is why I am somewhat perplexed. It never moved nor did it change shapes or colors for around 15-25 seconds and then all of the sudden it split into 4 or 5 little balls and the little balls shot off instantly and disappeared.
I'm 47 and am certain it wasn't an airplane nor some type of fireworks or floating candle like a Chinese lantern. It was the strangest thing I have ever seen.my wife says it wasn't an airplane either and she was laughing at me when I first told her to look up and see it saying " that's just an airplane". It was silent and there was a light northerl! y wind but it was unseasonably warm for that time of year.
