|Large area of bright objects with falling across the atmosphere from Southwest to Northeast in Missouri above Kansas City
We saw several large bright white objects with trails of redish gold sparkle. It looked like a satellite I saw fall across the sky several years ago. It went from Southwest to Northeast and lasted for over a minute.I contacted Columbia Flight Service Station in Missouri and they said they had had one other report from Someone in Maryville Missouri with the same description. I am a Pilot and Instructor and felt obligated to report it.
