I spotted an object in the sky in Liberty that was long in shape with beams of light in front and underneath it.

I left work on 07/31/02 at 02:30 took me approximately 10 minutes to reach the by-pass. I was traveling North on 82 which turned into 11 north heading toward Liberty when I noticed a flash of light and I thought it was just a passing car. I noticed that there was a semi-truck in front of me and headlights of a car behind me. I looked up again at the flash of light and intially I thought nothing of it and I thought it might just be a star but no sooner did I think that it shot out at the speed of lightning about 100 ft. and then it just came to a dead stop. I immediately pulled over to the side of the road and when I looked up the semi-truck and car were gone as though they had vanished into thin air. There was no place the truck could have turned and the car which should have went pass me when I pulled over never did.

Where the truck and car went was beyond me. By now I was really wondering what that object in the sky could be. It had a long shape and looked like beams of lights with gaps in-between and a white light underneath it. I started driving off and I grabbed my cell phone to call the Liberty Police and I was talking to the sprint operator when my cell phone cut off. The object followed me and there was not another car in sight. When I turned off the by-pass into Liberty I could still see it then it just sped out of sight very fast in a NE direction. My cell phone was now working fine. When I got home I didn't feel like myself and my body didn't feel right.
