Location: Columbia, MO
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:1-2 minutes
About 22:35, March 21, 2015, Columbia, MO, white to a very light color, no lights, rectangular like a ruler with 45 degree ends.

Friend and I were standing in the parking lot, basically facing north. I tend to look up at the sky often at night. But we were talking.

All of a sudden I noticed something almost white looking in the sky heading NNW. My first thought was geese. I have seen them fly over parking lots at night and they look very interesting in the night sky.

So, I listened to hear them, but noticed something odd. The shape was a rectangle, about the shape of a ruler in the sky laying flat, but the ends had about a 45 degree angle at each end.

A few seconds in this, I then pointed and just as I did, he saw it too. And we described the same, object to each other. It glided silently in the same direction and then we lost sight of it within 15 seconds or so. It was not terribly high in he air. Maybe a couple hundred feet in the air. I almost look the length of a bus in the sky. But not very wide.

I keep trying to convince myself it was a flock of geese. But I have saw a definite shape and my friend did too. We are very curious what that could have been?
