Location: Topeka, KS
Shape: Light
Duration: 1hour
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
While traveling home after shopping and running a few errands, I noticed a bright light that seemed to be following at a fixed distance. It was too bright to be star/planet. It did not have the blinking lights of an aircraft, but rather a fixed bright light. It followed parallel to me for several miles, then I took a 90 degree turn towards bright light and it continued to maintain the same distance despite traveling approximately 5 miles towards it. I took another 90 degree turn and once again it maintained a parallel flight pattern. I then took another 90 degree turn and it followed behind at a fixed distance. I repeated the rectangular pattern of travel and the light maintained an equal distance. At this point I drove straight in an attempt to outdistance the light and it grew smaller indicating that it was in fact flying relatively close to the surface. I continued direction of travel and light grew dim, but when I made a 90 degree turn I noticed the light maintained a parallel flight pattern albeit at a greater distance than before. I then drove toward the light once again and it then rapidly grew distant and small. It appeared that several aircraft in the area with blinking lights also may have seen the light as they were seen hovering in the area.
