National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report

Posted: 4/13/2010
Location: Independence, MO
Shape: Light
Duration: 20 secs
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
7 to 10 lights in the sky an hour before sunset. Way high in the sky moving really fast. First few lights were white followed by green lights with an occasional yellow light and finished with 2 green lights. Too far apart to belong to one vehicle. I estimate 5 mile plus or minus separation between lights and maybe they were at airliner altitude. No falling arc, no sparking like a falling star. Just lights in the sky moving very fast in a flat plane straight west. I estimate that due to location in the sky, they would have actually flown over south Kansas City, MO. Total viewing period was approx. 20 seconds and occurred over a 60 degree field of vision. Both witnesses were left wondering exactly what we saw. Viewing took place in a Sam's Club parking lot looking directly south. Didn't notice anyone else reacting as if they saw it too. Have seen NO report in the local press, of course!
