Duration: 1 1/2 hours

Metallic object, square/triangular shape, with blinking lights.

On the night of October 26, 2008, my three buddies and I were on hall st. which is just north of st. Louis. We were watching street races as I noticed this object just hovering there at the end of Hall St. I told my buddy to look at it and he thought it was just a plane because Lambert airport is near. 15 minutes later I told him to look again. He said it was just a helicopter. 45 minutes later as we were leaving when the cops came, all cars scattered, that's when my buddy said that things still there. As we were driving down the road it started to move near where we were. As it got closer it was about a football field high. The craft appeared to be like a square/triangle and big, about the height of a one level house. The length of about 50 yards. It had three blinking red lights on the side, a blinking red light at the top, and a big spot light in the front. As this description sounds like an airplane, it wasn't. The craft was swaying back and forth as to where you can see the reflection of the metallic looking bottom look square. I have a video of it. I had three people in my car that were going crazy. The craft made no noise. We left the pack of cars (which normally we wouldn't do), we jumped on the highway to follow the craft. We were driving parallel with the craft. You could see it clear as day. It started to veer off over highway 70 toward Illinois. We got off at the Bellfontaine exit and made a right. The object was on the western side of us starting to travel quickly and we were following it for about 3 miles, then the object disappeared. All four of us were freaking out cause this was no aircraft that we have ever seen before. The object had no propeller, no wings, made no noise, and had a square shape to it. I have a video on my phone of this object. It's not the clearest video but you can see the square shape and the lights. I have four witnesses that seen it.
