Location: Peculiar, MO
Shape: Oval
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Oval shaped object moving at extremely high rate with low light on opposite edges.

At approximately 5:45 A.M. I stepped out onto my front porch to have a cigarette. It is very dark where I live because we are outside of the major KC area so I was enjoying a wonderful view of Orion's Belt. Out of the corner of my eye I saw movement and focused in on it. An object was moving at an extrememly fast rate from the west. It was an oval shaped object which at first I thought just had some white coloring on the outside edges opposite each other but then realised I was seeing lights when the shape moved over some slight cloud cover to the west of my house. I could see the faint glow of the edges through the clouds. There was no sound whatsoever. And it was moving so fast that the entire thing lasted about 5 seconds before it moved out of view.
