Location: Tulsa, OK
Shape: Cigar
Cigar shaped object flew over our heads from NE to SW. Had red, white, and blue strobe lights on it. Made a high pitched whine as it passed overhead.

At approximately 8:00 P.M. CST, I, my younger sister, and my dad were helping my grandmother to move into her new appartment by unloading the moving truck. While we were out there, we heard a low rumbling sound which we took to be an air conditioner. My sister went out of the moving van and said that there was something up in the sky. We(my dad and I) came out to look and we saw and cigar-shaped object fly overhead. It had come from the northeast and went southwest. At the time it passed overhead, the rumbling we had heard changed into a high-pitched whine. The object had 3 strobe lights on the bottom that blinked on and off; one was red, one was white, and one was blue. It flew rapidly to the southwest until it was out of sight. I'm not sure how big it was or at what altitude it was flying, but it looked to be very high up.
