Location: Independence, MO
Shape: Chevron
Duration: 15 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Looked up an saw tiny points of light creating the shape of a Chevron.

Came home from a Royals game. Husband putting car in garage. Stopped to look at stars. Movement caught my attention. Moving from SW to NE, I I noticed (I am assuming), a single object, the shape of which was a chevron and formed by golden lights. The lights were bright at the leading edge and decreased in intensity as they went toward the rear, with the midsection being totally dark. The sky was perfectly clear. I could not tell if I was looking at a solid stucture or the sky through the lights. I thought I heard a very faint hum, like an electrical transformer, but I cant be sure. ............... ................... ... ... .... .... Sort of looked like this, but several hundred lights, and the midsection dark. There is no way to tell how high it was, but I got the impression it was lower than a conventional aircraft would be over a populated area. It measure approximately 3 or so inches at arms length. I see there is another report from Independence. Id like to talk to whoever made it. I will e-mail Mr. Davenport and give permission to pass on my e-mail address.
