Location: Ashland, MO
Shape: Triangle
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Fast moving object with three or four lights over Ashland, MO

I was driving home, to ashland, mo, from a friend's house in Columbia, mo... as i approached my exit into ashland i saw, what i thought to be a plane, there were 3 or 4 lights on the bottom with a blinking red light near the middle.

The "plane" was flying very fast accross the sky as it crossed from one side of the highway to the other. After crossing the highway the object seemed to come to a stop and hover over a field.

I watched as the object seemed to slowly be dropping. After passing the object i saw a faint outline that made it look as if the object was triangular in shape.

Usually i wouldn't think much of this as i see planes flying by all the time since there is an airport between columbia and ashland, but this object seemed to be moving faster and was much lower than the planes i see.
