Location: Overland Park, KS
Shape: Other
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
A horse shoe shaped object with red pulsating lights appeared, hovered, and reversed its direction.

The object was shaped like a horse shoe. It was traveling southwest toward my location. Around the border of the horse shoe were a series of large pulsating red lights. They may have been flashing or lighting in a series, but the effect was such that the light seemed continous.

The object appeared to be wobbling as if it were having difficulty maintaining its attitude. It's stopped and remained stationary for approximately 1 minute. I estimate the altitude at about 2,000 feet.

The object then began to move backward - away from my location. While there was no sound, the movement was such that the object appeared to have some form of propulsion - i.e., it was not floating as one might expect with a balloon. It traveled into the distance to where I could no longer see it. I took a picture with my cell phone, but it was too distant; therefore, nothing was visible on the picture.
