Location: Willow Springs, MO
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 20 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Large bright orange object seen twice in the same night

A friend and i were out at about 10 pm hunting coyotes. We were sitting down overlooking a large field, when i got a strange feeling and turned around. Just around the corner of a hill, about 1/2 a mile off, i was a large bright orange object. I told my friend to look, and he did. We saw it for less than 5 seconds, and the light just faded out and disappeared. There was no noise. About 20 minutes later, we were sitting in a different place, and were looking over another field, about 200 yards from where the first sighting appeared. Suddenly, a large bright orange object just appeared in the sky above us. It seemed to have a total of 5 lights, 3 in a trianuglar shape on the bottom, and possibly 2 on top. It was there for about 5 seconds, and then just disappeared. I believe it was the same craft as before, and it seemed to be watching us.
