Location: Independence, MO
Shape: Light
Duration:5-10 min
While driving along road I noticed a grouping of lights, ahead were a couple cars with hazards on,pulled to side with the others witnessing same thing. There was a group oh maybe two dozen or so small but bright white lights that were sort of swirling around another stationary light that was more orange and maybe three times the size of the others.the smaller lights swirled the larger one for a few minutes and then broke away from it left a few at a time slithering across the sky after each other in a snake like motion.the small lights followed one another but still moved around randomly. Organic movements no sharp angles or major speed variations. It was a clear night and lights were very very high up.
