Location: Boss, MO
Shape: Light
Duration: 20 sec +/-
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Six very bright lights, soccer ball size, at treetop level , horizontal & perfectly spaced.

At approximately 9:00 pm (dark) 1/2 mile from my home which is located near the Western Iron & Eastern Dent County line I was driving on a rural county road, when all of a sudden six bright lights appeared. I sat & watched them for at least 20 seconds. They seemed to be in a perfectly horizontal line, spaced evenly & at tree top level. They did not move, nor blink. No downward illumination appeared or nothing lit up in the treetops but the lights were very bright & clear with no haze. From my pickup truck, they appeared to be about the size of a soccer ball. The tree tops were slightly moving from a breeze (I assume) & I started to back up in order to get a better view---the lights immediately went out & or dissappeared. Due to darkness I could not see any image or outline of the object.

I am 65 years of age & never saw anything like this. Personally, I am very skeptical of UFO's or aliens but I know what I saw & I must assume it to be a natural phenomenon. My stock dog was riding in the back of the pickup truck & I wish she could talk because she appeared to be very nervous & scared.
