Location: Lawrence, KS
Shape: Formation
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
a huge flotilla of 50-200 glowing objects moving in formation

A sight to boggle the mind, the flotilla appeared in the southwest sky, travelling to the northwest at moderate speed in formation of 50-200 by various accounts. The craft appeared to emit a surrounding glow and emitted long tail plumes which also glowed. Some craft were seen as solid (not blinking) yellow lights that traveled in formation. The speed was greater than helicopters and no sounds were heard to be emitted by the flotilla. I seriously have no idea what this flotilla of craft could have been, but there were a lot and it was spectacular and many people saw the event. Whatever it was, it was big, as the lights stretched across half of the sky before fading.
