Duration: 1 minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Summary : Triangle shaped object with lights on each corner. Bright strobe lights leading in direction it was going. Going very slow and then stopped and hovered about 300 ft in air.

Driving back to Jeff City, MO in early morning. Saw object with what looked like bright headlight. Going very slow and kinda turning towards my direction. Thought it was a plane. Started heading towards my left. As I got parallel with it I noticed it was hovering about 300 ft. in the air. It was triangle shaped with orange lights at each corner. Thought it was a plane so I continued on but then I thought about it and I realized that only Harriers hover I thought. I thought it coulda been a stealth, but I don't think they hover either. I turned around to go back and look, but it was gone.. oh well. I am a distributor of a newspaper in the area and I was on my way back to JC to distribute it. I do the newspaper thing because I can't find an attorney job at the moment.
