|Object with vertical lighted panels.
Witness was at home and his roommate called to him to come outside onto the balcony to see something in the night sky at about 10:50 pm central standard time. The sky was clear but it was especially dark because it was a waxing crescent moon with 21% visibility that evening. They thought it was a plane at first but it was flying relatively low and they were were unable to make out a shape of the object which was strange because there were commercial and small engine airplanes flying this evening at varying altitudes and they could make out the shape of the planes even though it was dark. This thing had about 5 rectangular white lights oriented vertically across the back of it. The lights pulsated and flashed in a staggered order and then they would go completely dark for about one or two seconds and continue flashing again in rapid succession. They were not able to hear any sound coming from it nor were they able to see any kind of exhaust trail coming from! it. It moved from west to east in a straight line and they observed it facing south. It moved slower than a single engine plane would which made it stand out even more. They thought it might be a drone but it was unlike any drone they'd ever seen before. They followed its trajectory which was viewed above a tree line for about the next 4 minutes until it was no longer visible behind the tree line. Witness included digital photos / screen grabs from video (a couple are zoomed in and cropped) and video that are relatively bad quality because of how dark it was but it highlights well what they saw.
