Location: Springfield, MO
Shape: Triangle
Duration: ~5 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangle object over in at low altitude close highway 60 then moved slowly north.

As my friend and I were driving home from shopping at the mall in Springfield, we noticed two lights in the sky. At first I thought it was a tower then I noticed the lights were not flashing like they usually do so then we thought it was a helicopter. I stated that I didn't think helicopters had lights like that.

We were almost right upon the object when we noticed it was in a triangle shape as well as had not two; but three lights on each point. It was just hovering there so I took a photo of it. Shortly after taking the photo it started moving slowly north.
