Location: Winchester, KS
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:8 seconds
This bright white light was traveling at a very high rate of speed, before falling into the horizon.

At 12:50 a.m. on 8/26/13, west of Winchester, KS on the Leavenworth/Jefferson County line I saw a bright rectangle fly from southeast to southwest. It was the size of the moon, but the shape of a stovepipe, and it was up in the air.

I observed this for approximately 8 seconds. It caught my eye while traveling from the south, I stood up, and witnessed it fly to the Northwest. It dimmed from a moon sized, stovepipe shape, into a small orange ball.

4 minutes later I heard a boom. There were no cars out in the country at the time. All the dogs in the distance started barking at the noise. I drove up the Leavenworth/Jefferson County Kansas line to see if something could have crashed. I couldn't see anything. There was no traffic, and no cb radio traffic as well.
