Location: Reed Spring, MO
Shape: Light
Duration:aprox. 2 hrs
5:30 met friend to go to work. he is talking about light he has been watching in the south and also another much brighter light in the east/north east at about 15 degrees above horizon.

i said it most likely a planet or star or even the space station. it has been very cold and clear in our area..

driving up the mountain i notice the bright light in the east/north east and it doesnt look like a star or planet after i begin to watch it more is pulsing and changing color somewhat though nothing really noticable if you are not watching closely..

after getting to branson west where mike is to meet his boss i get my video camera out and start to video the light.."sony mini dvd 560." this is around 5:45am.

i shot video for 29 minutes and took still image snaps of the light...two other lights where spotted at the 4 oclock position of the main bright light..the main light pulsed, the lower left light was dimmer than the main light and the right hand light was very dim though discernable to the naked eye and the camera.

as dawn became brighter the 2 dimmer lights disappeared but the bright main light became very visable and seem to grow a bit larger.

by 7pm all activity ceased and the lights where gone..

camera shots show a week triangle formation when enhanced and the 2 smaller lights are very visable in the video and the snap shots..

conditions where clear and cold. temp in the low 30's. no wind or moon presence.

the anomaly in the south was much lower than the main bright light and was very hard to capture on camera.. both myself and mike noticed pulsing in this light also.

was to far to make any estimation of what this looked like other than the distant pulse and possible split of the light into two lights once.

lost sight of the southern light well before sun up.

no conclusion by myself on what this is and have not ruled out planets or a star cluster but so far havnt been able to match a location of a star or planet to this location as yet.
