Location: Joplin, MO
Shape: Triangle
Duration:25 minutes
We saw a triangular object with lights on each corner that hovered in one spot for 25 minutes over our city and videotaped it.

My significant other and our three sons were returning home when all of us saw a strange light that was hovering in one spot in the sky. The light would change shapes and brightness. It formed into a triangular shape, and we could see that it had one light on each of the corner angles.

We videotaped it for quite a while. Part of the video is blurry, but you can clearly see the triangle shape in part of the video.

I have two post-graduate degrees and am self-employed. My boyfriend spent a decade working for the city. My son is 15 and is in high school, and the other two boys are 10 and 7. All of us saw the object, and we stayed out there as long as we could stand it because it was very cold.
