My sister-in-law and I pulled up in the drive of their homeand she said, "What is that thing?"

My sister-in-law and I pulled up in the drive of their home and she said, "What is that thing?" I looked to where she was pointing (eastward) and saw an object with a row of red lights horizontal to the ground over an open field about 200 feet away. They reminded me of the lights on a radio tower. We watched it for maybe five minutes. I cant exactly say I saw a saucer but that was the impression of the shape I got from the lights. The lights then moved slowly toward the south across the back line of the property. Then it moved southeast and up into the sky and disappeared.

Report taken by B.Becker. (Note: There were two other witnesses on the same day around the same time. One owned the adjacent farm and the other was a police officer. Neither wanted to fill out a report. They stated they saw the same "object" with red lights around the same time over the field as the primary witnesses.)
