Location: Topeka, KS
Shape: Disk
Duration: 2-3 minutes
the object spun, wobbled, and flipped over and over as it went across the sky.

We were shooting off fireworks and my step-daughter and husband were looking for the parachute to come back down. My step-daughter saw it first and then my husband and myself saw it. It was a disk that was silver on the top and a reddish brown on the bottom. It was spinning and wobbling as it moved slowly across the sky. It was also flipping over and over as it went. The sun reflected off it as it flipped. We watched it for about 2-3 minutes as it went from west to east and disappeared behind the tree line.
