Location: Wellington, KS
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Five people watched three different colored lights move around the sky North of Wellington, Kansas.

On a camping trip, about a mile south of Wellington, 5 people witnessed an unexplained object in the sky to the North. The object appeared to be above or just to the North of Wellington.

At first, the object looked like a candle light. The first two to witness the object believed it was a Chinese lantern at first. The object began to alternate slowly between being dim and very bright. As the object was fading intensity, the first two witnesses alerted the next 3 to the object. As the five of us watched, two more lights, one red and one blue appeared. The three lights moved independently of each other in sporadic and random patterns, changing in intensity for about 45 seconds before fading away. I feel like it is important to note that one of the spectators felt that the experience was too intense, and towards the end, began to feel extreme anxiety.
