Posted: 10/23/2013
Location: Versailles, MO
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 25-30 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Yellow/Orange colored "orb" seen for approximately 30 minutes

I flash of light outside the window caught my attention. In the southwestern sky I saw what appeared to be a very bright, larger than normal yellow/orange "star".

It was a solid brightness, no flashes as one would see on a typical aircraft. It seemed to hover in the distance moving only slightly.

After about 7 minutes, a second "star" appeared; however, it dipped behind trees and I was not able to see it. This second object appeared at least two more times in the course of 15 - 20 minutes.

Just before the object disappeared, it seemed to separate into 3 different orange-colored orbs and disappeared.
