Location: Wichita, KS
Shape: Other
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Strange, unlit object on a low, straight path over city.

The object was spherical in the middle, with wing-like shapes coming out of the top and bottom. It was traveling in a north-northeast direction. No lights whatsoever on it, which was the odd part. Sighting was right at dusk, so the object could be seen against a darkening sky. Low to the ground, maybe 300-500 feet, depending on distance away, which was very hard to judge. Probably less than a mile away. No sound. My wife and I tracked the object as it went in a straight line, for about 2 minutes until it went too far away. Definitely not an airplane.
