Characteristics: There were lights on the object
White ball of light over Springfield, MO moving south to north very quickly and low at 9:15pm.

I had a sighting last night at 9:15pm Halloween night from my front yard. It was a bright white ball of light traveling very quickly south to north over east Springfield, Missouri. It was very low about 30 degrees above horizon. It was smaller than a pea at arm's length. No strobing or flashing lights or aircraft sounds heard.

This is the second time I've seen this light in a week. Last Thurs. 10/25 at 10pm I was on my backyard deck and noticed this same white ball moving SW of Springfield but much lower and it quickly disappeared behind trees and homes.
