I am a degreed computer professional who has tried to escape the city life rat race by living in a rural area just outside of St. Louis. The event happened around 6:10 p.m. on 11/10/99. I was driving in a valley between two ridge tops in a heavily wooded area (Hillsboro-House Springs Road). This area has no streets lights of any kind and there is farmland in the valley between the two ridge tops. On my left there was a break in the ridge, and a light (almost moon size) was hovering stationary to the left of the break. I rolled down the window and stopped the car on the road. There was no audible sound coming from the light. Shortly thereafter, a car was coming up behind me so I proceeded forward. The light moved at a very quick speed horizontally to the right (about 15-20 degrees). I lost sight of it after that due to trees obstructing my view. The total event time of the sight of the light was about 1 minute. The only other sighting I have had was in 1976(?). This involved several traveling red glowing objects, observed while going down the Mississippi River on the ship the Admiral. I was not the only person on board that saw them. ship the Admiral
