Location: Lebanon, MO
Shape: Light
Duration: 20-25 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
String of 12 or more lights hovering in a straight line above highway 44 in Missouri with unusual light patterns

Driving toward Saint Louis on highway 44, near Lebanon, we saw a string of lights for about 20 minutes that had a very unusual flash sequence. They seemed to be hovering over the highway.

At first we thought they were a fixed object such as a string of towers of some sort. As we got closer, we realized that they were much to high (maybe a mile or so, hard to say for certain as we were in a vehicle the entire time.) They were in mostly a straight line but not exactly and flashing red and white in a very odd pattern. As we got closer, they headed West, not sure of the speed.

Someone on our bus was able to record it through the windows.

About 20 people saw it.
