Location: Columbia, MO
Shape: Disk
Duration:3 min
I was driving on Highway Z about 7 miles north of Columbia and saw something up in the sky. I thought it was a helicopter but it did not appear to be moving. It was a dull matte grey color and looked like two inverted contact lenses with a little turret on top, with a large round blue/white light on one side. Whatever way the object was moving was the way the light faced. A vehicle was stopped on the other side of the road with 3 occupants in it, watching the object. 1 female and 1 male were standing up in the bed of the truck and 1 male was standing on the dash of the driver’s side. I pulled over, opened my car window and turned my vehicle off to see if I could hear anything. I was about 60 feet from that vehicle, and sat and watched it for a while. One of the males yelled over to me if I saw that, I answered yeah, that's why I stopped. They asked what it was and I said I didn't know. The object would stay in one spot for a while, then move very slowly, then stop, then move again, never with any noise. It finally arced around and moved faster away towards the northwest.
