Possible UFO Sighting in Iowa October 9, 2014.

I heard on the news tonight, that the International Space Station could be seen at 7:30 for 6 minutes. I began to look at the sky during this time but did not see anything. It was a bit cloudy and I thought perhaps I would indeed have to wait for another time. I have never witnessed seeing it, and I continued to look at the sky in hopes I did not miss it, etc.

Around 9:00 p.m. my friend and I were walking to her car from our homes. I again looked up, and there in the sky we both saw a triangle shaped flying object with flashing red lights that alternated with turquoise blue when it slowed down or changed speed. At one point it for a moment hovered a bit.

We realized then, it was perhaps a UFO. The pattern it flew was like it was “mapping” the sky. I mean, it did not fly straight and then away. It would come back from the North and then South again.

My friend ran into her home. I continued to watch it from my window. Perhaps 30 minutes or so later, after it disappeared, a large airplane or craft of our own flew close to where we had seen the other object.
