Location: Kansas City, MO
Shape: Other
Duration: 5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
On a december night head lights approached us. Then shot into the sky.

My family and I were searching for the Metro North Mall. We are from Saint Joseph and were not familiar with this area. It was sometime around Christmas. We were shopping for presents. We ended up on a road that lead us somewhere around a open field. It was night and we saw headlights approaching us. My father did not know how to get back on the highway, so he was going to wave the other car down and have them tell us directions. My father came to a stop and waited for the other car to pull up. Except it stopped about 25 feet infront of us. That is when we notice that the head lights seemed to be floating in the sky. After a few seconds my father pulled a little further up, and the lights raised about 15 feet in the air. My step-mother freaked out at that time and opened her window. She thought that it may of been a helicopter( I have since lived by a hospital that life flights out and know better). There was absolutley no sound what so ever. Not even a car motor. It remained there for about a minute and then it raised a little more. Then, suddenly it shot kind of diagonal into the sky. And eventually straight up and out of sight. I would like to put that the speed that it traveled was amazing. Not helicopter like at all. I do not know if it was from this world or not but I do know what I saw. What my whole family saw.
