Craft seen hovering over houses, when persued it left at a rapid velocity. Similar craft seen a few minutes later.

We were returning home from Perkins when, on Kansas St. heading east, we saw a triangular craft hovering above a residence across from a public school. The sky was overcast, and it was very windy. The craft was below the clouds, as evidenced by the reflection of its lights. We stopped our van and looked and listened, hearing nothing. No props, no blades, no engines. We turned left onto the street the residence was facing, and as we did so, the craft moved northwest. We persued it as best we could through the residential area, but in a matter of 1-2 minutes it was beyond the horizon. We made our way back, and in doing so saw another craft, which at first appeared to be a helicopter, then a plane, then, as we saw it better, exactly like the first. It made no sound. Both craft were black, with white lights on the triangle tips and a red light in the center. Only the first appeared to hover. I am a college student attending William Jewell College in Liberty, MO, and my friend is a high-school Junior attending Rockhurst College in Kansas City, MO. Since seeing the craft, we have witnessed over half a dozen normal aircraft in the area. Normally, I see none.
