I sent this information via e-mail to Mr. Davenport the night of the event, but I will write again exactly what I wrote to him. I was on my way to my bosses house at appox. 8:00pm on Aug. 28. (I was headed West on US 54 through Wichita.) I noticed in the Western sky a slow-moving oblongular object that appeared to be heading South in direction. If I had to guess I would say that it looked like a comet or shooting star in the daylight. As I kept watching this object noticed that it stopped for an extended amount of time. (probably 3-4 minutes) Then all of a sudden it shot off much quicker than it had been moving before in a Northwesterly direction.
