Posted: 1/28/1999
Location: St. Charles, MO
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 25 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Cigar shape with 3 port-hole windows, lit up with bright white light, moving slowly So. to No. Obvious pointed frame work(trianular like) on one end. No noise, no trail, flying very low. Possibly gray/silver in color.

Around 2100 hrs I was sitting outside and saw a grayish/silver cigar like shape flying slowly across the sky going South to North (opposite of the flight path of aircraft going to Lambert Field). It was flying very low and I could see obvious framework on the front end in a protruding triangular-like shape with an "elbow" on the side where I was viewing. Similiar to placing a cigar into a large triangle and the bottom of the triangle being horizontal so it would be a stand if it were to land. There were 3 large port- hole windows (that I could see) which illuminated bright white light. There was no noise coming from it or any vapor trail. It moved at a steady pace and kept going in a Northerly direction til out of site. It really drew my attention not only because it was low but you never see any aircraft flying in that direction over my house because of the circling pattern of all of the aircraft waiting to land at Lambert Field. Have also seen a bright green light falling to earth but it burned out right above my privacy fence so maybe SOME of the reports of the bright green glowing fireballs are just meteor showers even tho I must say I have never seen bright aqua-green meteors before.
