Location: Springfield, MO
Shape: Light
Duration:>1 minute
North side, light over city, moving very fast.

It was getting dark, and I was outside talking with my neighbor; he had just waxed his truck, and wanted to get it back in his garage because it looked like it was going to rain.

Then to the East, I saw a light. I asked my neighbor if he knew if it was a star. It appeared to get brighter, and I was getting ready to hear what I thought would be the sound of a helicopter, but heard nothing. I would hear no sound of any aircraft throughout the sighting.

It went behind a tree, I took my phone out of my pocket, and my neighbor asked if it was raining. A few seconds later, I started recording at exactly 7:37 PM. I assume it is the same light, due to the brightness.

As I was recording, it also looked like there was something black over the light. However, I could not see what that was clearly.

The light appeared to head in a North direction, and soon started to disappear. This to me appeared to be from going through the clouds. I was watching it through the screen of my phone, and camera app, so, when I couldn’t see it on screen, I looked over my phone, and I saw the light for about a second, and then I couldn’t see it anymore.
