It was October or November 1999 when the KC Chiefs were playign the Seahawks at Arrowhead Stadium and the game was held up due to lightning. I was baout 10 miles east and a little north of I-70 on 39th streeet. My wife and I had just come out of Independence Center heading for Oak Grove our home. We always take 39th street to 7 highway south. We just passed Salsa Rd. I was looking to my left when I spotted a white light about 9 o'clock high and I couldnt rememebr if there was a tower in that direction. It was very cloudy and very dark, so I looked back forward then my curiousity took over and got the better of me so I looked back and saw two windows, then looked back down the road and at first I thought that the blimp was up, but then it hit me that because of the lightening, rain and wind that nothing would be up and flying. Now I looked back and left and paid closer attention to the windo3ws. This time the first thing that struck me was how wide they were but the odd thing was just how narrow they were. They didnt seem that high off the ground and hanging in a cloud. They were 6" to 8" long and about 1/2" high and very bright but not like headlights. I saw no beam, but more like a room light up with bright lights, where you cant see out but people can see in. I thought I saw movement behind the lights but that could have just been my eyes playing tricks on me. I watched them for about 3 to 5 minutes before I turned on to 7 highway south and lost sight of them. I felt a little fear as I watched them and I dont know why I never asked my wife to look at it. I wish I had.
