Posted: 8/29/2014
Location: Rolla, MO
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 15 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright white, darting ball.

I observed a bright white light falling, and suddenly stopping. The object then continued horizontally east, darting from left to right repeatedly.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, in order to confirm that the sighting occurred at night, and not in the morning. We have changed the time above. He apprised us that the object appeared to descend, then ascend again, as it was maneuvering in the sky. The witness seemed to us to be quite sincere, and he sounded serious-minded to us. PD))
