Shape: Changing
Duration:6 minutes
I cannot believe what I saw. I looked out our huge picture window and saw a red light changing shape..it was as if it was a rubber band ..it looked like a crescent shape then a horseshoe.

I wanted to yell at my husband but he was asleep on the couch after a grueling day of going to the doctor in St. Louis so I didn't wake him. I ran to our back door and looked out...I felt scared..I heard no sound. I was afraid to go outside. I returned to the window and watched it float over our farm field to the east over the Mississippi River toward Quincy Illinois. It made no sense to me. I hesitated to make the report because I don't know what it was. Why didn't I take a picture or record it.?...that disturbs me that I did not do this.. I was so mesmerized that it didn't occur to me until later. I watched it for six minutes until it was out of my sight. An airplane would not take six minutes to go over my house. It was like I was under a spell because I know that a video or picture is imperative..I did know to note the time though. Thank you.
