Location: Lawrence, KS
Shape: Light
Duration: 30-40 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
two small, round lights moving very quickly, with abrubt direction and speed changes seen in South Lawrence.

In south Lawrence (11/20/8 7:40pm CST), in the area of 31st & Iowa Streets, I went out on the deck for a smoke- looked up at the stars, and saw what appeared to be two, small round objects (appeared as medium bright stars) moving North. The objects then stopped in mid 'flight' (flight was somewhat erratic- they would come close to each other, and then separate, but would always stay within a finger-width (from my perspective) apart), and then reversed direction and headed South. I lost sight of them when they moved past my effective field of vision- they moved very quickly- the whole sighting lasted about 30 seconds from when I first spotted them above my house. I thought at first they were high flying birds, but the strange flight characteristics (sudden direction changes, and what appeared to be terriffic speed (if they were as high as they appeared to be)) convinced me otherwise- I'm a college educated person who is extremely skeptical- I would not be writing this if I didn't truly believe that what I witnessed was something very odd indeed.
