Triangle UFO hovering over Kansas City

let's see. i was coming into KC from the west via I-70. eventually i noticed this thing on the horizon that looked like a plane, but it wasn't seeming to move. two lights, not very far apart. i watched it for about five minutes as i drove towards KC and it hardly ever moved much, but when it did it was a quick slide and then it would stop again.

eventually i lost sight of it. but about 5 or 10 minutes later when i got to the suburbs where it was flat again, i saw it. hovering over the industrial area, off to my right. it was at about the height of the top of a radio tower, but there was no tower supporting it. it looked like a plane, kind of, but it wasn't moving. i could vaguely make out the triangular shape of it, and at each end of the triangle there was a yellow-white light facing down toward the ground. it didn't seem to move as i drove right under and past it, and then i couldn't see it anymore.

on the way back out of town it wasn't there.

as a follow-up, i looked for UFO information when i got home and was amazed when i came across a photo of a UFO from Belgium in i think 1990. it looked exactly the same. i surely hope someone else saw it.
