|9 witnesses to several disk shaped aircraft in the night sky.
The persons who first noticed the ufo's were looking at the western sky trying to watch the meteor showers. When they looked up they noticed what appeared to be stars, yet these were not on any map that we had ever seen. These "stars" had intense flashes of yellow green red and blue, and seemed to be stationary at the time. Three of us saw blue lights shooting from one "star" to the other. Upon further monitoring with binoculars we discovered that the stars were infact moving at rapid speeds, faster then any plane that any of the nine people had ever seen. Also these "stars" looked like round disks through the binoculars. Once looking through the binoculars an older member of our group estimated the disks to be around 15 miles away. The disks themselves were a gray or silver color. After about 30 minutes of looking to the western sky we noticed that there were more of these disks above us and to the east, in all totaling around 8 disks.
About an hour later the disks then began to move to the east. What was also strange was that even though these objects were moving we heard no sound. Also through the entire event we did not see any planes. I mention this because we usually see planes headed to Lambert International Airport in Saint Louis. One of us called a relative who lives in Saint Louis and asked if they could see the disks and he confirmed seeing the same thing.
All in all we are a family who loves nature and star gazes often. Some of us are extremly well educated and some of us know alot about the planets and stars. By far this was the strangest thing anyone of us had ever seen. But one thing is certain we all saw the same thing.
