Location: Columbia, MO
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 min
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
We were sitting at an outdoor table, looking East, and counting the Stars and Planets as they came out. Venus(?) was at 1:30 with another planet below it to the right. A star was at 11:00 and some below it. I counted a total 8 objects in the sky at this time. A bright object was seen moving across the sky, north to south. Roy went in to get binoculars for me, at about Venus it turned around and came back, South to North-NE. I was able to see it with the binoculars as it passed the star at 11:00. It was a steady bright light, not flashing. It was very high in the sky. At this time 2 airplanes came from the North, lights flashing and turned East. One was close behind the other. This gave me an opportunity to judge the speed of the UFO. I do not know, but I would guess it was moving 10-20 times faster. I looked like a big meteor, but had no tail. Did anyone else see this object??
