Posted: 10/10/2014
Location: Chariton, IA
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 7-8 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Cigar shaped object, with three white-ish then blue-ish lights in the back, moving from W to SE for 7-8 sec.

I witnessed an event, myself, two moving lights, becoming three, moving from the west heading southeast.

It was at 5:21 am 10/8/2014, I was outside my second floor apartment on the flat roof in back of the building.

The event lasted 7-8 seconds. I had been awake since 4 am. I was watching the eclipse. It was dark out.

The two lights were white-ish blue-ish, moving fast from my right to my left, above the rooftop of the building south of mine. I thought it was strange, so since I had my binoculars (eclipse) I put them to my eyes and what I saw was like nothing else. I first noticed there were now three lights, in between and in the back of a cigar shaped object. It was moving fast and quiet. That lasted only two seconds, then it was gone. As I lowered my binoculars it was out of sight.
