Location: Fulton, MO
Duration: 15 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
|Odd white lights moving at different speeds.
I spend alot of time outside at night due to my smoking habit. I spend alot of that time looking at the stars. Tonight I just happened to look up and see a white light that at first I thought was a meteor, but soon realized it was moving too slow. Much faster than any plane I've ever seen but too slow for a meteor. I watched it for about 4 seconds before it was obscured by trees. It stayed solid white (no strobes) and stayed the same brighness the whole time I saw it.
I sat for about ten minutes trying to figure out what it could have been. I finally decided it had to be a piece of space debris re entering the atmosphere.
I stood up to go inside when I saw another much brighter light traveling in the same direction (east). It was moving much slower. Closer to the speed of a plane. It appeared to be lower or bigger. It was also solid white with no strobes. It was bright enough that I could see it through the trees.
I would say the second was a plane but there were no strobes and the light never changed in brightness the entire time I watched it (approx. 30 seconds)
