Reported: 10/6/2003 9:24:19 PM 21:24
Posted: 10/7/2003
Location: Kansas City, MO
Shape: Teardrop
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were electrical or magnetic effects
the object,while lit, flew faster than any plane I've ever seen.

I looked in the sky as I was driving down a semi-lit street, and saw a bright light flash from one side of the object to the other. The light bent on the object as if it were curved or raindropped shape, and as if the object was spinning or turning. When the light got from one side to the other, the back side of the object was facing me and as it did, the object dimmed and shot at LEAST 20 miles across the sky and disappeared...... It was a crystal clear night, so it didn't disappear into any clouds.... I instantly called my house to tell my fiance what I saw, as soon as I began to say hello, the weirdest noise shot through my cell, she told me she heard it on her phone too. I was only 1 mile from home. The noise sounded like radio frequency, but was only a second long.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and found him to be quite credible. He felt quite certain that the sighting had not been caused by an observation of an advertising light streaking across the sky. Conditions were clear, with no clouds. PD))
