Location: Columbia (east of, near Little Dixie Conservation Area), MO
Shape: Triangle
Duration: one minute
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
My friend and I were out looking for shooting stars on a country road when this large unknown object flew over us. It was a large triangle shaped object that made no noise and was moving at a fairly high rate of speed. I know it was triangle because it had a bright light at each point.

The object moved across the sky slow enough for us to really get a good look at it. It made no noise, at least not that we could here and was in the shape of a triangle. At first I thought it was a plane or some kind of formation used by military aircraft. I realized that this was not the case when I noticed that this object was close enough to us that if mthey were tradtional planes, we would have heard them fly by. It never turned or made any sudden moves, just traveled from the southwest to the north-northwest and eventually out of sight. We passed it off as something no one would ever believe, and something we could ,never prove we saw, but I recently saw a news report here in Columbia that described others who had seen the same thing my friend and I saw, so for what it's worth, we saw it to but have no earthly idea what it was. It was triangle in shape with lights at each corner, it was fairly large and made no noise, the middle of the craft looked open or see through but I may be wrong about that, but it definently was not a solid craft because I could see stars in the sky within the triangle of lights. This is true, I don't want to be famous or popular, I just want to know what it was I saw, and I wanted to somehow let those that have seen this object that they are not alone.
