Location: Manhattan, KS
Shape: Light
Duration:5 minutes
Bright orange lights in a disk formation appearing out of nowhere before slowly vanishing.

We were driving on I-70 back to Manhattan when I saw several orange lights in the sky that looked close by. They were so bright that they looked like they could have came from fireworks or an explosion of some kind, but it was illuminating the sky around it. The lights were in a disk-like formation and several more appeared between some of the lights. This honestly reminded me of the Phoenix Lights. There is Fort Riley near by, so I'm unsure if it was a military thing, but these lights were so close and not anywhere near Manhattan or the military base. These lights then began to descend down toward the ground while also vanishing like if someone turned off a light. By the time we got to Bill Snyder Highway, the lights were gone.
