|At approximately 1 am of Sept. 25th, 2008, I saw an object in the sky that I was and am unable to identify.
I was at a local park with 2 friends between midnight of the 24th and 1:00 a.m. of the 25th. All three of us were swinging and listening to our own portable music. At approximately 1 a.m., I saw an object in the sky that I was and am unable to identify. What I could see of the object consisted of 5 disks of light which were the color and brightness of the stars in the sky, but much larger than stars, and these lights were arranged in a distinct "V" shape.
The quality of the light is much different from any light I know of on an airplane. Whereas airplane lights consist of small, bright lights, the lights I saw were large, dim, and disk-shaped. The angle of the disks demonstrated that the lights were on the bottom of "something" and that they were not very far away (horizontally).
The object moved at a very low speed, as though it were cruising casually through the sky above the city, heading in a south/south-easterly direction. However, the object was already almost out of site behind other objects when it caught my attention, leaving me only a very few matter of seconds to view its travel.
As soon as I noticed the object, I turned off my music (a matter of a split second) and I heard absolutely no sound attributable to an aircraft.
It may be of interest to the record that the city of Warrensburg is extremely near an Air Force base, and thus I have seen plenty of their aircraft, both day and night, including the Stealth Bomber. In fact, I saw a low-flying Stealth Bomber just the night before, and so I was easily able to distinguish the object I saw from the aircraft typically seen in the area.
