i went out looking around with some friends of mine south of town where we go to hunt in the fall and our vehicle broke down just before it got dark so i called for help and a ride and we sarted walking back to the main road which was maybe half mile noth of us. there is houses around this area but pretty far off and the area is also located just noth of the missouri river. as we were walking we looked off to the sout west of us and seen bright lights along the horizon and stopped to smoke a gigarette and watch for a few minutes while we rested. we continued to walk north toward the road and on of the guys with me noticed that the lights were now a series of sever lights all in a row along the horizon at first we thought they were head lights from the high way which was also due west of us that travels south. but as we walsed thelight started to move in unusual patterens and stated to bounce as if they were bouncing off the horizon over one another. one of the guys i was with had a rifle with a scope on it and decided to look through it to get a better look at what we were seeing and just as he raised the scope to see they all stopped moveing and did what seemed to be moving in our direction. now we said to each other to keep moving and not to do that again and not to look back. by the time we walked for a few minutes we seen headlights o fthe people who were coming topick us up and really didn't look to see of the lights we had seen behind us were still there. in one instance the lights had merged together to form one then they spread out over the horizon adn did this maybe twice.
