Location: Batavia, IA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 30 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
white lights brighter than stars. thrugh binoculars you could see round craft detail of many lights outlined.

Looked like an extra bright star. But through binoculars I could see there was a bright white light in the center with several lights around the outside edge forming a circle. The object would turn a little, and it would turn oval. Then a couple of times it looked like something was partially in front of it. Something black that blocked part of itself and you could see no glare. There were 2 like this and possibly one other farther off that was a blinking white haze. They were hanging out trying to look like stars. This was in the south sky and I know for a fact they weren't stars or planets.
