Location: Wichita, KS
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 30+ min.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Saw a bright tear-like triangular shape in the sky that did not move for more than 30 minutes

Driving east on US Highway 96 between Hutchinson and Wichita, KS, when I observed a "weird" looking star. It was brighter than most stars and with the sky being overcast, for one to shine so brightly it caught my attention. It was north of the highway.

After seeing this "star" I looked in other directions and noticed two others (one further east and one south). These "stars" did not appear to be moving.

Looking further, I observed it looked like a tear in the dark sky letting light seep through in a triangular shape. As I was driving, the two others disappeared from my line of site, but the one to the north stayed stationary. The star remained in site until I arrived at my home. Then I cam inside and looked for a website to report it on.

I was listening to the radio and talking on my cell phone all of the way and had no interference.

I had not been drinking or using illegal substances and am not overly tired. The feelings I experienced were facination at first and then after realizing it was something unknown, I kinda got that X-File like paranoia. I made sure I stayed with traffic and drove through popuplated areas all the way home.

This is my very first reporting.
