Location: Columbia, MO
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 min
Me and a friend were driving home from a friend's birthday party around 10:00 to 10:30 PM. A little ways past his house we noticed a very bright light to our left. Looking at it first I said "Why is that plane flying so low"? But then it dropped down from where it originally was and was coming closer to our car. That’s when my friend said "That’s not a plane". The shape of the UFO was triangular with white lights on each of the corners and a big red light in the center. It also had many other little lights but are harder to remember. I rolled down my window to try to take a picture with my camera cell phone, and that’s when I noticed that the UFO was completely silent. No noise of an engine or anything, dead silent. I took a picture on my phone, but it turned out very blurred, it was just a blurry splotch of light on my phone. The craft then rose up higher after passing over our car and moved into the distance out of our sight. After seeing this we were both in shock because of how close our encounter was.

NOTE: I spoke with the witness who had little to add except that the sighting occured in the Pierpont area around Hwy 163 and N. - B. Becker Report taken by MIG: Missouri Investigators Group.
